  1. I am just beginning this process and found a theme I want to use from Elegant themes..
    I want to transfer a theme from Elegant themes over to my and set it to a domain that is linked somehow. Not sure what that means or what I did to create that? I really wish there was someone I could talk to who could give me a summary of step by step directions!

    The blog I need help with is

  2. Hi there,
    The only themes we can use on free hosted blogs like your blog at are the themes found here

    There is no FTP access to free hosted blogs and we cannot upload any third party themes, create child themes or our own themes or edit templates.

    There is no upgrade you can purchase that changes that. Please read > offers free software that you can install on a web server. You can upload and install themes and plugins, run ads, and edit the database. Learn about the differences here.

  3. and set it to a domain that is linked somehow

    Do you mean that you want to purchase your own custom domain?

    In order to map to a domain one must have an underlying subdomain blog to map from. If you have registered a blog you log in as Admin under the exact same username account that registered the blog and purchase a domain name by purchasing an annually renewable domain mapping upgrade for the blog.

    See here if you do not own a domain

    See here for mapping an existing domain that you already own

    See here for mapping a sub-domain (for a domain with an existing website) to your blog

    Dashboard > Store > My Upgrades is where you do the primary blog set up knowing it can take between 24 - 72 hours for domain name propagation to take place throughout the internet. You can view the DNS changes here > What's important during that stage is to be patient.
