my own design, is it poossible?

  1. Hello, I have bought now my domain, and I want to have my own design. The image of my company in the blog.
    Can I have to work with one theme of wordpress and modified it???

    The blog I need help with is abrazarte.org.

  2. You cannot build or use your own custom theme built from scratch at WordPress.com. You cannot upload third party themes.

    The only themes we can use are those found here > Appearance > Themes
    This is a multiuser blogging platform. All blogs wearing the same theme are using the same underlying template and we cannot access the underlying files and edit templates or themes. http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/editing-themes/

    There are two free themes, Sandbox and Toolbox designed to allow maximum flexibility for CSS editing and creating new “skins”. Toolbox is more modern and includes a lot of support for CSS3 and HTML5, so it is really only limited by your skills and knowledge.

    If you have CSS editing experience the upgrade will allow you to stylize the appearance of themes you find here > Appearance > Themes, but will not allow you to change the functionality, by editing the underlying template. It does not allow you to remove footer links to the theme designer or to WordPress.com. Also note that CSS is theme specific, so you cannot use the CSS stylesheets from other themes with the themes at WordPress.COM. http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/custom-css/

  3. Well, you can add CSS to any WordPress.com theme if you also purchase the Custom Design upgrade, but you cannot edit the theme html or php code. It's possible to customize quite a bit if you are CSS-savvy or willing to learn CSS. There are themes such Toolbox and Sandbox which are designed to be blank slates for customizing with CSS.

    You can absolutely have you own design in your company's brand. In fact, I'd love to see your work on this!

    I would recommend checking out Toolbox and Sandbox.
