Installing Custom Theme

  1. Hi,

    I just bought a theme and cannot seem to upload it via the WP dashboard. How do I get this theme on my website (boundedbybooks.com)?

    My purchased theme is this: http://www.dessign.net/gridthemeresponsive/

    Thank you!

    The blog I need help with is boundedbybooks.com.

  2. Hey sjaikaran, for security reasons, hosted wordpress.com blogs do not allow the upload of outside themes.

    Downloaded themes can only be used with self-hosted wordpress.org installs. Here's some info on the difference: .com and .org

    For your blog, you can browse the long list of wordpress.com themes to find one that suits you: http://theme.wordpress.com/themes

    Looking at the free outside theme you chose, I'm sure you'll be able to find something with a similar feeling here. :)

  3. Thanks so much, lettergrade!

    PS - The theme I pasted above was NOT free :(

  4. Oh no, sorry to hear that. (The badge on the theme link called it a 'Free WordPress Theme.' Maybe they meant, like, 'liberate'...?)
