Import a third party theme without being premium?

  1. Hello there,

    Sorry for the very rookie question but I didn't find the information any where else.

    I would like to install this free theme. The video tutorial says to use the import button in appearance/themes. I don't see this button in my dashboard.

    Thanks for the help,
    Basile

    The blog I need help with is b2belectronic.wordpress.com.

  2. The only themes we can use on free hosted WordPress.com blogs are 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 third themes. To use any theme other than the over 200 found here Dashboard > Appearance > themes you will need to hire a web host and set up a self hosted WordPress.org install. http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/
