How to install WPML with Hemingway theme?

  1. Hi everyone,

    I would like to install WPML on my website (aikidoouest.com), but it seems that it is not compatible with my theme (Hemingway). This brings about a few questions:

    1. Is it indeed not compatible with that theme?
    2. Can WPML only be installed on a WordPress.org site (self-hosted site)?
    3. If not, can I install WPML on a free theme offered by WordPress.com?

    Thank you for your help!

    The blog I need help with is aikidoouest.com.

  2. WPML is a WordPress Multilingual Plugin for self hosted WordPress.ORG software installs only, and you are confusing wordpress.COM hosted blogs with WordPress.ORG software installs.

    There is no FTP access and no blogger installed plugin capability on any free hosted WordPress.COM blogs and there is no upgrade you can purchase here that changes that reality.

    WordPress.COM and WordPress.ORG are completely separate and have different username accounts, logins, features, run different versions of some themes with the same names, and have separate support documentation and separate support forums. Read the differences here http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    If you want to hire a web host go to http://wordpress.ORG/hosting and then you can set up a wordpress.ORG install like the one depicted in the tutorial you referred to. Then, if you don't have a username account at WordPress.ORG account, then click http://wordpress.org/support/ and register one on the top right hand corner of the page that opens, https://wordpress.org/support/register.php so you can post to the support forums there.
