    I'm just trying to set my Wordpress blog before trying to sign up with CPAlead.

    I'll be honest here, I don't even know where to start, Wordpress is very complex!

    I have some questions that I would really appreciate some help with.

    1)After the blog is ready, I intend to redirect it to my domain, I want it to hide all references to Wordpress as possible, so those little links at the end saying "Blog at Wordpress.com" are really something that I don't want.

    2)I see all those amazing Wordpress themes shared here on BHW, I've downloaded a ton of them, but how can I upload them to my Wordpress Blog?

    3)Can I just post some auto-rewritten content on the blog to be accepted by CPAlead, do I need something else?

    Thank you all for your time

    1- In order to remove the link to the wordpress site you will have to edit the footer.php which could be removed after enabling the wordpress theme or prior uploading it to your root theme folder but keep in mind that your theme might "break" and the columns will look funny. I suggest to google "how to remove a footer link from wordpress theme"
    2-In order to upload your theme you have two choices:
    *From an FTP program: This will require a third party program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, Its a bit time consuming since you will have to change some folders permission.
    *From Fantastico (check if your host provides this option): Basically install the script from one click of a button.
    *Both of the above options require a setup of an SQL database.
    3-Content is king so yes you need to have content but if you wish to go with the autoblog route I recommend a host that will not suspend your account for using certain plugins which might increase the CPU usage. ( search in the forum for suitable and recommended hosts for autoblogs)

    Ok here I ago again with other 3 questions.

    1)So I need to buy some hosting right? (if so where can I find the cheapest working with SQL support?)

    2)Where can I get fantastico? (since it seems it is the best option)

    3)How can I setup an SQL DB?

    Thanks once again.

    Bluehost is what you need. It comes with fastastico. You don't even need to know how to setup sql db. Just go to cpanel, click fantastico, install wordpress. That's it. Goodluck
