    Hi there,

    My blog http://noesium.wordpress.com has been active for a while. I just realized that I could obtain http://www.noesium.com/blog on my web host (Bluehost) by doing a one-click “WordPress Install”. Is there anyway to forward/change my blog including all existing content to the new URL (www.noesium.com/blog)?

    Thank you very much in advance!

    The blog I need help with is noesium.wordpress.com.

    You can Export the contents from here and Import them over on your new site.

    Thank you very much! It worked well, except I have problem converting it back to my theme.

    By default, bluehost only shows two themes. According to the instruction, I went to wordpress.org to download the desired theme which should then show up under Appearnace>Themes. But it did not. Mind you, it was a zip file. Should I uplload all unzipped files indiviudally (does not make sense to me).

    I hope you can answer this question as well – appreciate your help!

    You have to unzip the theme, and then upload the unzipped theme folder (with all the files in it) via FTP to the /wp-content/themes folder on the new blog.
