Theme Problems

  1. I recently used a tutorial in which it explains to you how you can convert a normal CSS Layout into a wordpress theme. I completed this tutorial all correctly, But my problem is when I get to my dashboard, And then go to Appearance --> Themes. I cant find my theme there, so therefore I cannot activate it. It wont show up there at all! So please help me, I cant activate the theme that I have made.

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

  2. Hi Cassidy,

    Sorry to break bad news to you, but the only themes we can use on WordPress.com are the themes you find under Appearance —> Themes. There are currently 100 to choose from.

    In order to use the theme you have made, you would need to pay to host your blog yourself, though you could use free WordPress.org software.

    It can be confusing, but there are two very different and separate kinds of WordPress:
    wp.COM
    wp.ORG

    Here is a support document with details:

  3. If you don't want to take on the technical worries of hosting your own blog, and now that you have learned so CSS, then you might consider buying the yearly upgrade to modify one of the available themes.

    Here is information:

  4. No, I have a host already for my website which is at http://www.rainsessence.com, But I know many people who have converted their layouts into themes and I just cant seem to find mine.

  7. I checked my site this morning to put up a new post after a few weeks of inactivity and find all my widgets deactivated and my theme changed to the new one, Coraline? Or soemthing like that? I changed it back to one I used in the past, vigilence, but I don't recall the theme I was using, which I liked better AND I'd like to know if my widgets can be restored or if I have to do it by hand.

    Thanks
