Adding Thesis theme via an FTP client

  1. I have bought the Thesis theme and want to add it to my blog. I have downloaded FTP client Filezilla to help me do this but I'm unfamiliar with all this stuff. domain name was purchased and registered through WordPress.

    The issue I have is that I don't know what details go in the Host, Username, Password and Port boxes at the top of the Filezilla window when I try to make a server connection.

    Your help would be very much appreciated! Laymans terms only please!

    The blog I need help with is jowestwood.com.

  2. Are you asking about adding the thesis theme you bought to the blog linked to your name?

    If so - step one is to get a refund from where you bought the theme - you can't upload themes to WordPress.COM blogs - no ftp access - a security and reliability issue.

    auxclass is correct. Here are the relevant links for you:
    WordPress.com vs WordPress.org: The Differences
    no FTP access to free hosted WordPress.com blogs
    no uploading themes into free hosted WordPress.com blogs

    The only themes we can use are those found here > Appearance > Themes
    This is a multiuser blogging platform. All blogs wearing the same theme are using the same underlying template and we cannot access the underlying files and edit templates or themes.
