    Hi Guys

    I was wondering whether anyone could help me please.

    I want to ‘upgrade’ and change my wordpress.com to just zishaanshafi.com but would that mean I lost the ability to post on the WP Forum and the traffic/support that comes from being a wordpress.com user?

    Also I wanted to add a banner the top of my site and jazz the layout out a bit, I think this is called CCS?, but I wouldnt have a clue how to do it, but could pay someone asap to do it if they could.

    Thank you for reading :)

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

    When you purchase a domain name by purchasing a domain mapping upgrade nothing changes except the site URL ie. the domain name.
    see here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/#important-notes-before-upgrading
    and here > http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2012/04/02/do-i-need-a-domain/

    When you purchase a custom design upgrade you get Staff support for customizing the appearance of a theme > http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/

    I left a comment on the second link, (your blog?), should I have posted it here, as it’d resolve my query. :)

    Nice!

    I wanted to ask, that if I switch, do the urls which bring traffic to my site, become lost even for a period? ie there are some image links which generate a lot of traffic to it, which I am loathe to lose.

    The WP says one thing, but maybe I misunderstood your post, as it says another. :)

    The reason we purchase domain mapping is so when the original URLs are clicked anywhere on the interent they seamlessly redirect to the same content under the new domain URLs.
