    Default Can I use Socrates on a Wordpress.com hosted blog?

    No.

    Wordpress.com does not allow outside themes to be uploaded to their system, nor do they allow you to monetize your site.

    You need your own hosting, and to install Wordpress software to your site.

    Wordpress.com is a hosted solution = Bad.
    Wordpress.org is free software = Good.

    Need hosting? Get a Baby package at Hostgator.com and use coupon code: socratestheme to save $9.94

    Wordpress comes free and we have tutorials on how to install it in 2 minutes in our members area..

    Then just import your old wordpress.com content into your new site.

    Red face Up Loading Socrates

    Dan
    I have hostgator, and my 1st domain was set up with word press. I tried to upload Socrates to it. Got message that CPANEL canít have two strips. I then pointed five other domains I have to hostgator. Still havenít got them working in Socrates.

    Do I sign up each domain to a new admin/Login with word press, to get Socrates to work? What can I do to get Socrates pug in functioning ?

    I don't know what you mean by strips. I've never heard of that terminology and there's nothing in Google about it.

    You don't get domains working in Socrates, you get domains working on your hosting account. Then get wordpress working on your domains, then install Socrates via Wordpress.

    Forget Socrates and focus on getting Wordpress installed. If you can get wordpress installed, then Socrates will install.

    Hostgator has incredible live support.. Just get on their chat line and they'll get you setup in no time. Once you have wordpress setup, you can install Socrates.

    Hello everyone,

    I would like to "work" with other websites.

    I have a hosting account on Godaddy.com, which are the steps in order to have website with socrates.

    I make an account on wordpress and find a name about my new site for example games. Then, my name would be games.wordpress.com and I would like to do it, games.com and install socrates theme. Is it correct until here? otherwise please correct me.

    Then what will I do?

    You can not use Socrates on a Wordpress.com site. That site does not let you change themes. You need to get your own domain and a hosting account. Many of us use HostGator for hosting. Once you have the domain name and the hosting account you would use Fantastico Deluxe from the hosting account control panel to install WordPress.

    Godaddy hosting has Wordpress. Just goto their support and search for Wordpress.

    Hello,

    I also would like to know that every wordpress blog you create (with socrates) you need new hosting?

    Not necessarily. I use HostGator for my hosting and have a hosting plan with them that allows me unlimited websites for under $10 a month.
