Activating themes bought outside of WP

  1. Hi,

    I purchased a theme from another site (themify) and would like to install it for my wordpress blog. The guide provided by themify doesn't match what I have on screen. Do I need to purchase the custom design upgrade to install external themes? Or am I missing where I am supposed to go?

    Thanks

    The blog I need help with is lukeandjules.com.

  2. You will have to return the theme and request a refund.

    The only themes you can use on free hosted WordPress.com blogs are the 208 found here > Dashboard > Appearance > Themes

    There is no FTP access to free hosted WordPress.COM blogs and we cannot install plugins, upload third-party themes or edit templates or themes. Those found on the internet are for WordPress.ORG installs which run on different software.

    There is no upgrade that you can purchase from WordPress.com that provides FTP access and the ability to upload themes into a free hosted WordPress.com blog. See > http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

  3. Ah okay, thankyou for the quick response!
