    Searched and can’t seem to find an answer to this. Would love to utilize Weaver Xtreme with my clients who have a WordPress.com Business account. Other themes pale in comparison to Xtreme.

    I don’t think WordPress.com allows that unfortunately.

    This is the biggest drawback with WP.com….

    Ok thanks for the quick answer. 🙂

    There are soooo many drawbacks to WP .com and this is a big one for me, since I have clients that just don’t want to jump out into complete self-hosting. Darn.

    WP.com can host wp.org based sites if for some reason WP.com is important to the end user.

    I think that what weaver is saying is that the web site would be developed on wordpress.org, but could then be hosted at wordpress.com.

    WordPress.com has a relatively expensive hosting plan for sites based on the WordPress.org version. I know of one site using that solution, and it was because they trusted the WordPress organization. Not really different than most hosting companies – just WP.com instead of SiteGround, GoDaddy, etc.

    But you cannot have a WordPress.com site that uses most of the themes available on WordPress.org. There are a few that have made the transition to WP.com, but not many. It very very difficult to get a WP.org theme modified and approved for WP.com.
