I've just purchased a woo theme...

  1. I've just purchased a woo theme and when I select appearance - an install themes tab doesn't show up as the instructional video shows???

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

  2. Will you please post an active link starting with http:// to the free hosted WordPress.com blog you purchased the premium theme for? Will you also state which premium them you purchased ie. provide the name of the theme?
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/premium-themes/

  3. In the event you are not referring to a free hosted WordPress.com blog but are referring to a wordpress.org install, then you are posting to the wrong support forum, and ought to be posting to this one instead http://wordpress.org/support/
    For clarity > http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

  4. Here is my active wordpress blog. https://cherylmcryan.wordpress.com and I purchased the simplicity theme I've had the Coroaline them up since 2009 but really want to update it.

  5. You bought a theme from an external source, and you can't use that on a WordPress.COM blog. You can only use themes you find on your dashboard under Themes. Ask Woothemes for your money back.

  6. Do I have to use wordpress.org to use a purchased theme?? Woo themes designs are for wordpress. I know many people that have done this????

  7. I repeat that we cannot upload third party themes into free hosted WordPress.com blogs. Those themes are only for WordPress.org installs.

    For clarity please read this > http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

  8. Got it! I just read the elegant themes entry. So to use a purchased 3rd party theme we would have to open a new .org account in a new name?

  9. No, .org is only a resource for people using software from WordPress.org. You have to buy paid hosting and a domain name and install the software and THEN you can use your purchased theme. It's not usually worth it to move just to use a new theme. Woothemes even has some they made just for WordPress.COM, and those are on your dashboard.

  10. Thanks! I totally get it. Do you have any tips for getting my money back...

  11. Just email them and ask. They're a very reputable company.

  12. Hey there,

    Please feel free to contact us via support [at] wordpress [dot] com if you'd like a refund.

    Best,
    P.

  13. I purchased the simplicity theme ...

    I don't think that theme was purchased through WordPress.com as the theme name does not appear among those that are available to us here > Appearance > Themes or here http://theme.wordpress.com/
