Sub-page doesn’t appear under parent
Good I’m so glad we discussed this so if any other wordpress.com blogger reads this thread they will now clearly understand that the software is different and themes cannot be exported out of wordpress.com into wordpress.org blogs and vias versa.
Of course, you can post about your wordpress.com blog and any wordpress.com issues that relate to it here. :)
One more correction for your knowledge:
Themes can be exported out of wordpress.com into wordpress.org blogs and vis versa.
Have a look here again!
And you are absolutely right, I have missed a lot of great features with WP.com, including Java Script, Flash and SEO and many others. And therefore, after 3 days, I decided to move to WP.org. At the moment, I still use the same theme there (at the hosted page, but not yet being launched), but since it is so inflexible, I might want to change the design and theme. Hopefully, I could really find a theme, which I like.
You have not missed “features” so much as you have missed out on how to use the dynamic nature of a blog to be found by search engines and many potential readers. By structuring your blog as a bunch of pages, you have missed the point of having a blog with constantly changing content continually cataloged by search engines which will enable new readers to find your content.
Whether you self-host or remain at wp,com you are not grasping an important concept.
None the less: happy blogging! No hard wishes!
@1tess: Thanks a lot. Appreciate your message.
@ All : about hard wishes: We come here to ask for help, not like a customer being pushed or treated away out of the store to the street, should one is well informed. Finally, we are human behind the screen.
My own blog is also still free hosted by wordpress.com. I simply bought a domain name for it and domain mapping.
The Domain Mapping Upgrade does not enable the permission to use advertising, any kind of prohibited code, or upload additional themes and plugins. With the upgrade, your blog will still be hosted here at WordPress.com, which means that you will not have FTP access to your files and must still abide by our Terms of Service accordingly.
I repeat themes cannot be exported out of wordpress.com blogs and uploaded into wordpress.org blogs. The themes we have at wordpress.com have been adapted to run on worpress.com multiuser software from the original versions coded to run on wordpress.org software.
Likewise themes from wordpress.org which are not coded to run on the wordpress.com multuser blogging platform cannot be uploaded into wordpress.com blogs. In fact, wordpress.com blogs do not have FTP access.
Please look at these two blogs.
This blog has it’s own domain and domain mapping from the root blog at wordpress.com but it still free hosted by wordpress.com. The theme on it is the version of Vigilance that has been adapted to run on wordpress.com multiuser software.
This blog has it’s own domain and domain mapping from the root blog at wordpress.com. It is a on free software install from wordpress.org being web hosted by A Small Orange. The theme is the version of Vigilance theme that is coded to run on wordpress.org software.
In the future, http://www.theroyalhermitage.com will not use any theme from WP.com.
“Themes can be exported out of wordpress.com into wordpress.org blogs and vis versa”: Wrong.
“I have downloaded DePo […] and I have tried at WP.org and it works”: Right.
You can import and export content, not themes. If you have a wp.org blog, you can download and install any one of the countless themes designed for the purpose. If you have a wp.com blog, you can select and load one of the (currently 82) themes adapted and made available to wp.com users. Nobody said or implied you cannot use DePo –or any other of those 82 themes– in a wp.org blog: there’s a version for wp.org users (updated by the designer of the theme) and a version for wp.com users (updated by WP).
As for timethief telling people to head over to the other forum: yes she does, all the time, and so does every experienced volunteer here. Threads by wp.org users is the number one plague of this forum; keeping the two forums separate and directing wp.org users to their proper forum is official policy (check some “supportbot” replies), for good reason: the software is different, the possibilities are different, some of the problems are different, some of the solutions are different; replies re both com and org problems in the same forum would confuse most members seeking advice.
Check the latest specimen of my stock response:
You’ll see that timethief is actually kinder than me: she goes into the trouble of providing the necessary link – I just tell them to go see the sticky they should have read in the first place (8 Things to Know BEFORE Posting).
(@T&tt: sigh )
@panaghiotisadam: Thanks.I have read as well some of your response, and I agree when you or any other volunteer supporters in WP.com directing people to the right forum to ask. But my blog is currently at WP.com. If I have moved to WP.org, surely I will ask there. And what is going to happen if I go to WP.org now? They will say go to WP.com.
The fact that I haven’t moved, and I am trying to ask the solution for DePo Theme at WP.com, so please stick to this question to answer.
If I don’t understand the rule, such as not giving out the address of my blog on the problem introduction, or not reading “8 things before posting, added”, and if my blog were already at WP.org, YES, please kindly advise me to WP.org and I am happy to hear that.
Secondly, read first or browse through first carefully my page before giving me advice. As apparently I might have put the features in as what some of you might have advised before (like the link under parent page to help readers to know there are subpages, and so on) I appreciate advice from all of you. If you expect bloggers to read all of the rules carefully before coming to ask and do their homework to find the necessary solution first by themselves, I also expect that supporters read carefully and browse the page in detail before giving any comments and help.
In the end of the day, Support section is dedicated to help someone. When someone is already try his own best to find the solution at “help and forum” section after many hours, of course in the end one has to come here to ask for input should one is stucked. But getting such an advice to go away and seek another answer in another place, when someone is still at WP.com is absurd!
Please use the fact to answer, not judgement, feeling or intuition.
As WordPress is an open source blog publishing application which can also be used for basic content management, I wish, all volunteers are trying their best to really help in a sophisticated and professional way. Being opened doesn’t mean judgemental and advise as you like.
