Adding a third party theme

  1. Hello WordPress gang,

    I am actually asking if anyone has used a third party design for their site? Specifically I am looking at how to make this http://templatic.com/cms-themes/geo-places-city-directory-wordpress-theme/ my site.

    I am trying to create a listings type site of golf courses that I have played in various cities and want people to be able to comment and rate them. This site above looks like I can accomplish this but before I drop money, I wanted to ask if anyone has had experience in this?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The blog I need help with is theweekendgolfer.wordpress.com.

  2. We cannot add themes at wordpress.COM. We are limited to the 150+ (and growing) themes found in the dashboard under appearance > themes. Themes found on the internet are for self-hosted wordpress blogs using the software from wordpress.ORG.

    Themes at wordpress.COM have to be modified to work within the restrictions here and to support the unique features.

  3. Hello there,
    There is no FTP access to free hosted WordPress.COM blogs like the one linked to your username and we cannot install individual plugins or third party themes into them. Those found on the internet are for WordPress.ORG installs which run on different software.

    On free hosted wordpress.COM blogs we can only use the themes which have been coded to run on this multi-user software and made available to us here. > Appearance > Themes and no others.

    If you wish to have complete control over a blog, the ability to upload themes and plugins, and to edit themes and templates then your option is to hire a web host and get a free software install from WordPress.ORG and self host it.
