    Hello :)

    Hey my name is Henry. I love the Further theme first off. I purchased it for use on my wordpress com site ShrugandHugs.com . I am now using bluehost (wordpress.org) to migrate my website which is needless to say a work in progress http://69.195.124.110/~shrugsan/shrugsandhugs/ I was wondering if there was a way I could forego paying twice for the theme. I just purchased this new theme within less than the month through wordpress com – not the creative commons (along with custom design – custom fonts and other add ons).

    I would also like to keep my current URL from wordpress com and use it on wordpress.org. What are my options?

    Respectfully Henry S

    The blog I need help with is shrugsandhugs.com.

    No, there is no way to forgo paying twice for the theme, because the WP.com version is highly customized to work here. It looks a lot like the WP.org version, but it isn’t, under the surface.

    You can’t use a whatever.wordpress.com URL on a WP.com blog, but you CAN purchase a redirect upgrade that points your readers at the new blog.
