    Hi,

    can you please explain this a little better. Which beach theme?

    Theme bought on WordPress.com can be used just on WordPress.com.

    Cheers,
    Ana

    Hi,

    Don’t worry, this is not a mistake! When you buy a theme you get it empty. You need to setup the theme to make it look like in the live preview, if that’s what you want. The pictures you see in our live preview are for presentation purposes only and are not included with the theme. You need to put your pictures and your content. Here is the link to the help file http://en.wordpress.com/themes/tuned-balloon/support/.

    About the godaddy domain you need to ask wordpress.com support.

    Hope this helps!

    Best regards,

    Ana

    -Create a page to use as the home page and set the page template to Home Main – Static Page
    -Under Settings > Readings, choose “static page”, then select the new Home page you just created from the dropdown

    i did this but on the drop down it just says “about”
    there is no new home page

    Hi,

    record image is included in the images folder. You’ll need to upload your images or you can buy license for the images that are used in the live preview. With this theme you get few header images made by us (like beach image…). If you want the guy from the live preview, you need to purchase the image and upload it to your site.

    You need to set up your pages, posts, this can’t be exported with the theme. If you want home page, you need to create new page and call it Home and than it will be visible inside Settings > Readings.

    I am sure if you read help files: http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/tuned-balloon/ you’ll menage to set up the site. You’ll need to drag and drop widgets in appropriate sidebar. We explained each part in the documentation. Also we explained how to create home page and other pages…..
    Blog page is working like with each theme, you’ll need to write post, upload your images, content and this is it.

    If you need to really dig into customizing your WordPress.com theme (to change it significantly from the theme demo look) you can hire qualified developers to tweak your WordPress.com theme. WordPress.com is partnered with Elto, a WordPress.com customization service where you can pay theme customizers to assist you. Prices start at $39:
    https://www.tweaky.com/wordpress_com?invite=312c04bf7a4c2d33

    When you buy theme on WordPress.com it is empty one, you’ll need to add content, your own images etc.

    Cheers,
    Ana

    I bought this because of the way tuned balloon looks and because I had the same one and I liked it. so now your telling me I bought this one for 53£ and I dont get what I bought and have to pay more to have what I want I think thats wrong its like buying a bmw at the show room then getting a fiat delivered you show advertise better

    First, I reviewed your themikecast WordPress.com account, and I found that you purchased the Tuned Balloon theme on 2014-08-12 11:11:04 but then canceled it on 2014-08-18 17:24:13 and you were refunded at that time. I’m sorry the theme didn’t work out for you in the end!

    I think the problem here was that you didn’t understand that you do need to add your own content and update some of the theme options to get the home page looking similar to the demo site. Of course, it won’t look exactly the same because a demo site has different images and content than your site would. I do understand your frustration though, and we are actually working on coming up with creative ways to solve this problem for people who are not aware of the work it takes to setup a website. One idea is to pre-populate a site with test data on request. Ideas like that aren’t ready yet, but hopefully they’re something we can do better on in the future.

    In the mean time, if there’s any chance you’d like to try Tuned Balloon again, or another theme perhaps, then let us know here and we’ll try to help get you going with the setup. I think you’ll find that once you update a few things, it goes pretty quickly after that.
