Upload Theme Outside of WP design

  1. looking to upload one of these themes, which are outside of the WP designs.
    Just not understanding which bundle or package I require to do this sort of upload? I I don't need a fully customizable site, just looking to get this installed.

  2. 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/

    There is no upgrade you can purchase that changes this. If you wish to have complete control over a blog, the ability to upload themes and plugins, and to edit themes and templates then your option is to hire a web host and get a free software install from WordPress.ORG and self host it.

  3. thank you so much. I own a few domains via go daddy. But this is just a domain, not a host? correct? it this something else I must purchase through go daddy?

  4. Whether or not your blog is on a domain via a domain mapping upgrade changes nothing. As I said above there is no upgrade that you can purchase here from WordPress.com that will allow you to upload any third party theme into a free hosted WordPress.com blog. You can hire a web host and get a free software install from WordPress.ORG and upload as many third party themes as you wish.
