Annotum on WordPress.com: Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get started moving a Google Knol to WordPress.com?

Please read our documentation on the process of moving your Knol to WordPress.com. If you are new to WordPress.com as a platform, you may also want to read our guide to getting started at Learn WordPress.com—and since you have already started your site, it’s best to start with how to create posts.

For additional information on the WordPress.com service, you can search our support pages.

What if I just want to get started with an Annotum-powered site on WordPress.com and I don’t already have a Google Knol?

You can take any existing WordPress.com site and convert it to use the Annotum platform by switching to one of the two Annotum-enabled themes: Annotum Base or Annotum Sans.To do this, go to Appearance > Themes in your site Dashboard and search for “Annotum” in the theme collection.

What makes Annotum-themed blogs on WordPress.com different from other WordPress.com blogs?

The Annotum theme that powers your site is designed to include additional functionality that is not available to all sites hosted on WordPress.com.

Annotum provides advanced editing features like tables, equations, and figures, as well as a submission and approval workflow system—allowing you to publish a complete, peer-reviewed, scholarly journal online.

Can I change the theme on my Annotum-powered WordPress.com blog?

You can change your theme at any time, but if you change it to a theme that is not one of the two Annotum themes, your site will no longer have access to the Annotum features and any articles that you have published won’t appear on your site unless you convert them to “normal” posts.

Where can I learn more about the features of Annotum and how to use them?

For more information on the Annotum themes and the unique features they provide, please refer to the Annotum project documentation.
