issues uploading theme from elegantthemes.com

  1. I am having trouble uploading my theme that I downloaded from elegantthemes.com. I was under the impression I could use themes from outside sites in wordpress, was I wrong? I saw a short video that described how to upload other themes to wordpress by clicking on a tab under the dashboard--> Themes column on the left.. why don't I have the tab that says "install themes?" Please help!

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

  2. There is no upgrade that you can purchase that will provide FTP access and the ability to upload third party themes to a free hosted WordPress.com blog. To do that you must hire a web host and set up your own WordPress.org install.

    Reference links:

    The only themes we can use on free hosted WordPress.com blogs are those found here > Appearance > Themes and there is no upgrade you can purchase that changes that.

  3. WordPress.COM and WordPress.ORG are completely separate and operate on different software. You have to hire a web host and set up a WordPress.ORG install to be able to install any third party themes. Support for WordPress.ORG installs is here http://wordpress.ORG/support/
