    What is the nature of the problem you have encountered?

    And no, you cannot use external themes on a blog.


    @scientistdude, you really need to provide some detail. “Facing sidebar problem” tells us nothing.


    Hi, when i add widgets to side bar they don’t appear on side of the of the content but they appear below the content



    That’s easy. It’s the commonest sidebar problem. Just look through the other posts in the Sidebar tag here in the forum and you’ll find both the cause and the cure.


    thanks….will check it


    There are 5 sidebar areas in the Motion theme. Are you putting the widgets into the one called “sidebar”?

    look initially i started with chateau….theme which i liked ok…………… that i faced problem………..then i switched to motion theme ….same problem….i added widgets like….recent posts…they can’t be seen……………… help


    If you go to appearance > widgets and there are no widget showing in the main sidebar, then what you are seeing is a sample display of widgets put up by the theme so you can see what it looks like and so it won’t be just a big empty space. Once you add a widget, then the sample set displayed by the theme will disappear. You then go ahead and add all the widgets that you want to have in the sidebar and then arrange them in the order you want them by drag and drop.

    If you get your own domain name and map it to your site here, then all you get is that your wordpress.COM site shows up with your own domain name. Your site is still hosted here so that means all the same restrictions and Terms of Service still apply.

    From the domain mapping support document:

    Important Notes Before Upgrading

    Same Rules Apply – The Domain Mapping Upgrade does not enable the permission to use advertising, any kind of prohibited code, or upload additional themes or plugins. With the upgrade, your blog will still be hosted here at, which means that you will not have FTP access to your files and you will still be required to abide by our Terms of Service.
