Upload Theme

  1. Hi, I've purchased a theme on Themeforest.net. However, now being the owner of this download I can't seem to find the button to upload this zip file (or whatever file is needed). Help me out please! Am I missing something or doing something wrong?

    The blog I need help with is muziek-recensies.nl.

  2. Oh no! You need to get a refund because you cannot use it on http://muziek-recensies.nl/ or any other WordPress.COM blog.

    The only themes we can use on free hosted WordPress.com blogs like your blog are the themes found here http://wordpress.com/themes/

    There is no FTP access to free hosted WordPress.com blogs for security reasons and we cannot:

    upload any third party themes,
    create child themes,
    create our own themes,
    edit templates,
    create own own layouts,
    or use stylesheets from other themes.

    There is no upgrade you can purchase that changes that. WordPress.org offers free software that you can install on a web server. You can create themes, upload and install themes and plugins, run ads, and edit the database, etc. Learn about the differences here. http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    If you want FTP access and to install plugins or third party themes into a site then you will have to hire a web host http://wordpress.org/hosting/ and set up your own WordPress.org install.
