    Hello,

    I just purchased this theme and the old free theme is still showing up. I have also tried doing 2 test posts and nothing has gone live. I have already tried clearing my cashe and have also tried different computers.
    My site is patronsaintofbrunch.com. Any suggestions on how to fix?

    The blog I need help with is patronsaintofbrunch.com.

    It looks like you purchased Oxford for your WordPress.com site here:

    patronsaintofbrunchdotcom.wordpress.com

    It also looks like you have a second site here – http://patronsaintofbrunch.com/ This second one is running the WordPress software on your own hosting over at GoDaddy.

    Changes you make on one site will not affect the other – they are two completely separate sites, hosted in different places.

    The first thing we’ll want to sort out is which site you intended to use: your WordPress.com site, or your self-hosted site running on GoDaddy hosting?

    Once you confirm that, we’ll move ahead accordingly. Thanks!

    You can learn here about the differences between WordPress.com and self-hosted (WordPress.org) sites:

    I am looking to run the site with WordPress. I had already purchased the domain previously and was under the impression I could use the domain purchased from godaddy for my wordpress hosted site.

    Your domain patronsaintofbrunch.com is currently pointing to GoDaddy’s servers.

    You can use your own domain patronsaintofbrunch.com with your WordPress.com site, instead of your GoDaddy-hosted site.

    Here’s the guide to mapping your domain to your WordPress.com site:

    If you have any email set up on the account, be sure to follow the separate instructions in the “What about email?” section so you don’t lose any mail.
