how to upload a theme

  1. I need to up load a theme that i bought from someone else.

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

  2. Hi there,
    That's not possible. The only themes you can use on any free hosted WordPress.com blog are those found here > Appearance > Themes and showcased here > http://wordpress.com/themes/

    There is no FTP access to free hosted WordPress.com blogs and we cannot upload any third party themes, create child themes or our own themes or edit templates.

    There is no upgrade you can purchase that changes that.

    You can quickly and easily change themes to another one found here http://wordpress.com/themes/ and no data will be lost or negatively affected by the change. The only time you may have to do some work is if you are changing to a dramatically different theme and have done any CSS editing.

    Provided you are logged in as Admin under the same username account that registered the blog go to Dashboard > Appearance > Themes and browse themes until you find one you like and click "activate" or type in the name of the theme you want to use and
    click the "activate" link when it appears.

    After you change your theme all you need to do is go here Dashboard > Appearance > Widgets > Inactive Widgets and re-install them where you want them to appear. The widget contents and settings will be the same as they were prior to changing themes.
