    Hi folks,

    I’m brand new to Word Press, but I have a long history with programming languages, I’ve worked with simple Websites, Wiki’s and have spent a lot of time in the past working with (mostly static) HTML.

    I’ve recently set up my own wordpress.com site, and did a small amount of development on it. It’s a sister site for an existing WordPress.com site managed by someone else. One of the things I was advised to do was pay for the Custom Design upgrade so that I could use an existing custom CSS. I did this and the CSS upload worked fine.

    I realised after a couple of days that I wanted to change the site name to avoid confusion when communicating the site address to the public. I went and registered the new site name on wordpress.com, then I exported the original site and imported it into the new site. That all worked fine, except the custom CSS changes didn’t come across.

    My problem is that the Custom Design upgrade doesn’t appear to apply for the WordPress.com user, but instead it annoyingly appears to apply for each individual website. And my attempts to find a way to transfer the upgrade haven’t turned up anything sensible so far.

    So, is there any way to:

    a) transfer the Custom Design upgrade from the original site to the new site?
    b) rename the existing site to use the new site name?

    If b) is a viable option, now that I’ve done the importing and a little setup work, what do I need to “undo”, in order to complete a rename?

    I’m a little pressed for time (aren’t we all?), so any help very much appreciated!

    Thanks in advance,
