Template Loads

  1. All,

    I went out and found some templates I like for my web sites here, but unlike stand-alone WP apps I do not see where to upload and install these.

    How do I get these templates loaded? I had searched the entire set, provided here and none has a globe or earthmap image background which I have to have.

    Thanks!

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

  2. We cannot add themes at wordpress.COM. We are limited to the themes found in the dashboard under appearance > themes. Themes found on the internet are for self-hosted wordpress blogs using the software from wordpress.ORG.

    Themes here have to be modified to work within the restrictions here and to support the unique features here. Themes straight off the internet (which are for self-hosted blogs) will not work here.

    If you have CSS editing experience, you can get the Custom Design upgrade, which will allow you to stylize the themes here, but it does not allow you to change the functionality. CSS is also themes specific so you cannot use the CSS from one theme with another theme. Before buying the upgrade, you can go to appearance > Custom Design and to the CSS tab and wordpress has provided a preview function where you can try out changes before you buy the upgrade.

    There is no FTP access to free hosted WordPress.COM blogs and we cannot install individual plugins or any themes into them The themes found on the internet are for wordpress.ORG installs which run on different software.

    On free hosted wordpress.COM blogs we can only use the themes which have been coded to run on this multi-user software and made available to us here. > Appearance > Themes and no others. We cannot edit either themes or templates on free hosted wordpress.COM blogs. > http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/editing-themes/

    Please return to the first thread you posted and see what my response to you was there > http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/duplicate-home-pages-here-on-wordpresscom?replies=4#post-669858

  4. And besides reading http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/ to understand the difference between the different types of WordPress, you may also benefit from reading http://learn.wordpress.com/ as well.
