  2. The theme you chose Elegant Gurnge does not have an custom backgroud feature.

    Many other themes here do have a custom background feature found here > Appearance > Background

    There is no FTP access to free hosted WordPress.COM blogs like the one linked to your username and we cannot install individual plugins or third party themes into them. Those 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/

    If you wish to have a csutom background you need to switch to another theme. http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/features/custom-background/
