    Hi have a local wordpress website I access through webmatrix, I want to move the whole thing to my blog, how do I do that?
    Blog url:


    Your local website is setup with WordPress? If so, you can move the data into by using the Tools → Import option on your new blog. However, note that in order for images to be imported, the site you are importing on must be available publicly so that the server can access the image files. If the images files are not publicly accessible at the time of import, they will not be pulled over.

    At, we do not offer an option for you to install a custom theme such as one you may have created with a tool like Webmatrix. If you would like full access to code and the ability to install custom themes, you should be using a self-hosted install instead.

    See to learn about the differences. We have posted hosting recommendations at if you are interested.
