en WordPress.com Forums › CSS Customization Do I need to upgrade to change a theme Author Posts January 5, 2013 at 8:40 am #1114995 salilsurendranMember Hello, I like a theme but it doesn’t have a sidebar where I want to put my recent posts. Other themes I like have a sidebar but have too little width. How do I customize these. Do I have to upgrade by paying $30/year? The blog I need help with is salilsurendran.wordpress.com.

And yes, the only way to do this is to upgrade. Author Posts The topic ‘Do I need to upgrade to change a theme’ is closed to new replies.
