No Theme Editor

  1. Hello,

    The following site describes how to edit theme files:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_Files#Using_the_Theme_Editor

    It says there are two ways to edit theme files:

    1) Access the Theme Editor from the Administration > Appearance > Editor menu.

    2) Use the Plugin Editor located at Administration > Plugins > Editor.

    However, neither one is available in my dashboard, although I am the administrator and I am using WordPress.com Premium (http://store.wordpress.com/premium-upgrades/pro-bundle/?ref=newdash-footer).

    I DO have "Administration > Appearance", but under "Appearance" there is no "Editor". Furthermore, I do NOT have "Administration > Plugins".

    Can anyone help me, please?

    You probably will want to know which version of WP I am using. However, I don't know. Where can I look this up?

    Thanks,
    Thomas

    P.S.: What I CAN find in my dashboard is the following:

    "Appearance > Customize"

    When clicking on "Customize", a new windows with my blog opens including a blue sidebar on the right, which offers the following options:

    - colors
    - fonts
    - front
    - site title
    - css

    When clicking on "css", the file is empty. So, obviously, this cannot be the style.css file. Instead, I got the impression, that I can enter css commands here that are additional to the regular style.css sheed. For instance, I entered the following code to get rid of the shadows that were automatically added to any graphic included in my blog (by the way, I'm using the twentytwelve theme):

    .entry-content img,
    .comment-content img,
    .widget img,
    img.header-image,
    .author-avatar img,
    img.wp-post-image {
    box-shadow: none;
    }

    And this actually worked. The shadows are gone!

    However, I want to change four other things on my blog:

    - change the color of the hyperlinks (hover and visited)
    - reduce the distance between the menu bar and the headline of the site contents below
    - put a graphic in the very top of the page (where, at the moment, the site title and subtitle are)
    - delete the empty area below my facebook- and amazon-buttons (there are a white area and horizontal grey lines that I cannot get rid of)

    Here is the website I'm talking about:

    http://www.diebegruendungderwelt.com

    I have the impression that I need to edit the style.css file to change the above-mentioned four things?! But as described above, I cannot find the css editor.

    Thanks for your help!

    The blog I need help with is diebegruendungderwelt.com.

  2. There is no FTP access to free hosted WordPress.com blogs and we bloggers cannot install any plugins.
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/ftp-access/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/plugins/

    There is no upgrade we can purchase that changes anything at all stated here http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    FTP access, plugins and third party themes are available only for VIP bloggers http://vip.wordpress.com/our-services/ or for those with WordPress.ORG installs.

    WordPress.com and WordPress.org are completely separate. not a free hosted WordPress.com blog and those are the only blogs we provide support for here.

    WordPress.com and WordPress.org are completely separate and have separate logins. If you don't have a username account at WordPress.org, click http://wordpress.org/support/ and register one on the top right hand corner of the page that opens, so you can post there.

  3. Okay, I didn't know this. Thank you for your help!

  4. You're welcome and best wishes.
