Is it possible to transfer my blog posts and information to wp.org without starting all over? I need assistance with this. Thanks. The blog I need help with is affinisblog.com.

After you have set it up and equipped it with a theme and plugins you export your content out of the WordPress.com free hosted blog and import it into your new WordPress.org site.

I would guess .org is exactly the same, in fact I expect .com is newer code than .org right? I’m in the same sit, can’t really move to self host Author Posts The topic ‘Transfer blog posts from wp.com to wp.org’ is closed to new replies.
