    Hi,

    I have bought the tdEditor theme and I have started my website but I am unable to access the plugin fuctions.
    I was told at a WordPress meet up that if I move my website from wordpress.com to my own domain name and have it self hosted, I will be able to access the plugins? If this is the case, can I can transfer this theme that I have bought over to my new domain name and web hoster?

    Thanks for your help!
    Sally

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

    Hello Sally,

    Unfortunately, this theme is currently exclusive to WordPress.com. There’s no support for it elsewhere, meaning themes purchased on wordpress.com are only for use on wordpress.com.

    Thanks for your prompt reply.

    However, that’s a bit disappointing. Perhaps it was my ignorance but I thought WordPress themes were able to be self hosted. I have spent $70 on a ‘premium’ theme which I can not translate to my domain name. I might as well just see the money gone, and start from scratch again?

    In the meantime, if I am to persist with this theme and wordpress hosting, why would I not have the feature of plugins with this theme? It’s user interface does not seem to provide me with the flexibility I expected or live up to the capabilities of the demo. Feeling disappointed with my first foray into setting up a website as I feel I have received nothing in value for the money I have spent.

    Any tips on the plugins would be appreciated.

    tdEditor was designed for the WordPress.com platform.
    You can ask WordPress.com for a money back.
    WordPress.com offers a full refund up to 30 days from your purchase.
    Please contact them for more information: https://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/

    Unfortunately, WordPress.com does not include Plugins tab. You can read about plugins here: https://en.support.wordpress.com/plugins/

    What you see in my demo does not require any plugins. If you have troubles to set up your site exactly as it is shown in my demo, please let me know, and I will be happy to help you.

    Unfortunately I am past the 30 days and if it the theme can not be supported on my own URL then I will have to start again with a different theme as I want to use my own domain name. Perhaps this should be highlighted so this is clear as I thought I was just able to migrate the theme to my domain. OH well, it’s $70 down the tube. Thanks for getting back to me anyway…
