FTP Filezilla Host, username, and password

  1. I'm trying to add a new theme to my blog through Filezilla. It asks me for a Host name, a username, and a password.

    I have tried putting in my blog domain as host, (gameportriat.wordpress.com), and my wordpress username and password. But it doesn't work.

    Anybody have any idea on why this wouldn't be working? And how I could find my host/username/password.

    Thanks.

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

    You can add themes if you are using the free software from wordpress.ORG, and are hosting your blog yourself.

    Users of the free hosting (and software) at wordpress.COM can not add themes. Ours is a multi-user platform and the only themes we can use are the ones on our dashboards.
