price list? where is it? I'm trying to create a free blog....

  1. it is not clear what is free, you need price list, where is this? I start to create a blog, but then it says "buy now" with no cost given??? I just want to create a blog for free, but you take me through in an awkward manner, I want to see my various theme choices, but you show 6, one of which is $75 dollars?!? I try to customize what appears to be a free theme and then I get that "buy now" thing...huh? I thought it was free? ugh.
    Blog url: http://driverbenji.wordpress.com/

  2. The hyperactive advertising can be ignored.
    All blogs are provided free of charge and are hosted free of charge.
    All themes (over 200 and the majority are free ) can be found here http://theme.wordpress.com/ and selected and activated here > Appearance > Themes
    No upgrades are required to create a successful blog.
    All upgrades are found here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/upgrades/

  3. I try to customize what appears to be a free theme and then I get that "buy now" thing...huh?

    To gain access to the CSS editor and be able to customize a theme you will have to purchase an annually renewable custom design upgrade http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/ and do the required CSS editing http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/editing-css/

  4. ok, but, just trying to change the color scheme, is this not possible without upgrading?

  5. Many themes have the option of a custom background or custom header at no extra charge. Use the filters in the Theme Showcase to find them. http://theme.wordpress.com/

  6. ok thanks to both of you for info & links, I'll get this going later

  7. custom headers http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/features/custom-header/
    custom backgrounds http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/features
    custom colors http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/features/custom-colors/

    Note: A few themes do provide for changing font color in the Blog Title and/or optional Tagline and/or links. In the majority of themes font changes to font families, colors and size in the blog title, tagline, menu, post titles, page titles, categories and tags, widget headings, comments, and links cannot be done without CSS editing.
