Unable to edit or upload custom themes to my website- Cheating, uh?

  1. Long story short; I'm unable to use wordpress for my intended purpose which is for a websitel. my domain is mapped to wordpress and the latest wordpress is installed on my web hosts cpanel..... When I go to mydomain.com/wp-admin/ I have no custom themes that were previously added. Everything was fine and I was running a custom theme i bought from themeforest but when I tried to upload a custom logo I got that "Cheating, uh?" message and it never worked beyond that.

    When I go to wp-admin and login I am taking to wordpress.com dashboard and settings options but I am unable to upload customm themes there.

    Any thoughts? How do I fix this and how can I upload my custom theme? (It was uploaded to my host via FTP)

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

  2. That's a WordPress.org install that you are referring to. WordPress.com and WordPress.org are completely separate and different. I'm sorry but we cannot help you here at WordPress.com with that site as it’s not being hosted by WordPress.com and we run on different software. This is the correct forum for your software http://wordpress.ORG/support/ If you have not registered a WordPress.org username account yet you can do so on the top right hand corner of the page I just linked to so you can post to those support forums.

  3. There is nothing to be fixed. Third party themes are not permitted here.

  4. Okay thanks guys. I should have my domain mapped to wordpress.ORG and not .COM, correct?

  6. There is no FTP access to free hosted WordPress.com blogs and we cannot install any third party themes. http://en.support.wordpress.com/ftp-access/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/adding-new-themes/ The only themes we can use on free hosted WordPress.com blogs are those found here > Appearance > Themes and there is no upgrade you can purchase that changes that. For a comparison of WordPress.com free hosted blogs and WordPress.org installs for self hosting see here > http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/
