Do you have to have an upgraded account to install a theme from trusttheme.com?

  1. I have purchased a theme that I would like to use for my blog/website. I already have a domain name and host site ( not yet updated), but I am having issues finding the "install themes" button to install the theme I want for my site.
    I do not have a paid blog with WordPress. Could this be the issue?
    Please help me, my time is limited regarding building the site.

    Thank you.

  2. To use a third party theme you will have to hire a web host and set up a self hosted WordPress.org install.

    The only themes we can use on free hosted WordPress.com blogs are found here > Appearance > Themes and there are 200 of them
    see also > http://theme.wordpress.com/

    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 you can purchase from WordPress.com that changes anything stated here http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/ and restated again here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/#important-notes-before-upgrading and restated again here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/#frequently-asked-questions

  3. I already have a domain name and host site ( not yet updated),

    Who is that host?

    That's probably where you need to ask this question as hosts operate differently.

  4. What is the domain name - URL you need help installing the theme on?

  5. You might be in the wrong forum:

    This site is for support of sites hosted on WordPress.COM.
