    How can I transfer my purchased Blocco theme from WordPress.com to a selfhosted server, namely http://www.silvestrum.com?

    I have exported all content under Tools in the Dashboard and imported the XML in the Selfhosted Dashboard. Everything is transferred except for the purchased theme. (?)
    Please advice.

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

    You may be able to find your theme Blocco for WordPress.org.

    But the premium theme you bought for WordPress.com won’t work on your wp.org site.

    Themes for wp.com have been adapted to work on our platform. They are not the same as they were if they’d been originally designed for wp.org.

    Thanks for the info, I’ll contact Press75 who made the theme and hope to arrange some refund as we’ve only used it it for 2 months on WordPress.com.

    Thanks again Tess!

    Yes, good idea.

    I was guessing you were beyond the refund time allowance but for others reading this thread I’ll note this:
