Custumization

  1. Ways to get a free premium mebership or custum blog for free? I know that the answer is probably no but I made a wordpress blog so google could not take it down BUT wordpress has many restrictions when custumizing blog. I have heard you could custumize your blog on wordpress.org but I do not have the extra money to put in my blog. The kind of custumizing I want to do is get a third party theme and install to my blog am I able to do that for free.
    Sorry for bothering :)

    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/

    On one hand, none of the characteristic "blog" features likes categories, tags, authors, dates, etc. can be removed from a free hosted WordPress.com blog without purchasing an annually renewable custom design upgrade and doing the required CSS editing.

    On that other hand, one can hire a web host and set up their own self hosted WordPress.org install. Then they can hack a WordPress.org theme free of charge.
