Hi,

I have a customer who has hosted their site at wordpress.com, unfortunately unless you go for premium support you cannot get the plugins. Is there anyway around this at the moment i just want one of the seo plugins.

Has anyone ever moved a domain from wordpress to another hosting company IE if i host the wordpress site for them?

Are there any themes that are on wordpress.org that are not on wordpress.com

Thanks.

It is pretty simple, you can scoot using the WP export feature. Once WP is installed on your server you can use the import feature to import your data.

I sent the last post from my iPhone which substitutes words. The above should read you can export the current site using the WordPress export feature. It will export an XML file. You can import the XML to populate images, posts and comments from the current site.
