It’s official. One of the little things that caught my attention during WordCamp San Francisco event last week was now you can use any free WordPress.com theme on your self-hosted WordPress.

Downloading WordPress.com Theme
Although it’s not so obvious, now you’ll find a new link to download the theme on the theme page. Take a look at Libretto theme, one of the my favourite WordPress.com themes. On the bottom left of the page, you’ll see the link to download the latest version of the theme.
Click on the link and you’ll get the .zip file of the theme. Simply upload it to your site and activate it as usual.
