I love the theme Motif and would love to use it for my business website. I have a package where I have wordpress as the hosting page. There is an option to upload a theme that has been downloaded as Motif is not part of the themes that is present on wordpress.org. Do you have a way that I can download the theme and add it onto the website?
The official place to download themes for your self-hosted blog is WordPress.org but as you mentioned, Motif isn’t included.
WordPress.org provides a rather ugly and cumbersome way of downloading a WordPress.com theme. You have to install something called SVN to download your theme from their SVN directory.
But I’ve discovered a site called Design311.com that hosts all the WordPress.com themes, making them available to download in a good old-fashioned zip file! :-)
Just click download, extract the Motif folder and then upload it to the ‘wp-content/themes’ directory on your self-hosted website. It should now be ready to activate through Appearance > Themes in your Dashboard.
Before you jump in though, please be aware of this message — that themes located on that website will not automatically update and therefore may break at any WordPress upgrade.
The chances are, it’ll continue to work for the foreseeable future, but… well… no guarantees :-)
