Installing a theme I bought?

  1. Just bought and downloaded a WordPress theme, how exactly am I supposed to use it? Most of the info regarding this matter seems out dated, as well as the instructions that came with the theme (admin page ->appearance->add new themes, when there is actually no option for installing a theme in the appearance tab.) Help is appreciated!

  2. you can't install your own theme here - that is why that tab is missing - it is a security and reliability issue - the themes here are highly modified to run here - ask for a refund

    Says that you can't upload themes.. is this something new? Why isit that I just bought a theme for WordPress if WordPress doesn't allow custom themes?

  4. I'm sorry, but themes can't be uploaded to WordPress.com. That's a feature of self-hosted blogs through WordPress.org.

    You may use any of the available themes we have under Appearance > Themes in your dashboard, and you may want to look into purchasing the Custom Design Upgrade to customize one of the themes we offer:

  5. Been this way for years - you bought a theme for a WordPress.ORG install on your own host

  6. Got it, thanks!

  7. You're welcome!
