    Is it possible to keep a theme for my existing posts but to use another (new) theme for all new posts?

    Thanks for your assistance.

    The blog I need help with is orchestrasounds.com.

    Hi there, a single site can only one run theme at a time, so what you’re proposing is an interesting suggestion, but it isn’t possible. :-)

    Just let me know if you have any other questions!

    OK, thank you.

    Is it possible to move old posts to another blog (like an archive site) and then put in a link from my site to that one?

    Yes, certainly. See How To Import Posts & Pages From One WordPress Website To Another for detailed instructions.

    As musicdoc1 said, exporting posts from one site and then importing them into another is definitely possible. Here are the WordPress.com support pages that explain how:

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/export/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/import/

    The tutorial musicdoc1 references is also good, but just a heads-up that some of the steps are slightly different since it’s aimed at self-hosted WordPress sites, and mentions installing the WordPress importer plugin, for example, which isn’t necessary on WordPress.com.

    Just let us know if you need further help.

    Thanks to both of you for the information and the links.

    If I need additional help I’ll be back, but I think I’m clear on my next steps.

    It’s nice to know that this kind of assistance and this knowledgeable and helpful community is there.

    Best wishes.
