    I have found a WP template on the Internet. I already have it installed under the WP folder on my computer. Under Dashboard>>> Appearance>>>>>Themes, I do not see a Install Theme menu. How in the world am I going to install this Theme then? I'm new to WordPress. Thanks.

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

  2. Hi. The short answer is: you can't install them on WordPress.COM, but you have 100+ themes to choose from and some possibilities to personalize them. Details and rationale here:

  3. @ladygaga2010, themes used here have to be sanitized for security issues and modified to work with the features and restrictions here. It is possible that in the near future we might have paid premium themes here, but wordpress is probably never going to open it up to the point where we can install just any theme we find on the internet. There are themes out there that have stuff in them that does not comply with the GPL license that wordpress themes have to be offered under, and there are also some out there that actually have malware and adware built right into them. Sad but true and with security a very high priority here, open use of themes from off the internet probably isn't in the cards.
