Formatting my blog

    If I buy the Expression WordPress theme (or any paid theme), will I be able to remove all widgets on the sides and have my photos be displayed as a full page photo? I am currently using the Forever theme and cannot edit my blog appropriately. I don’t have the option to edit code using this theme. I am trying to make my blog look like a website and not a blog. Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is



    If you intend to blog here at on the blog linked to your username or on any blog then you need to know that the only themes we can use on blogs are found here > Appearance > Themes

    You cannot build your own theme here. There is no FTP access to free hosted blogs and we bloggers cannot install any plugins or upload any third party themes or software. Those are for WordPress.ORG installs which run on different software.

    There is no upgrade that you can purchase from that provides FTP access, the ability to install plugins, third party themes and software into free hosted blogs.



    This is a multiuser blogging platform. All blogs wearing the same theme are using the same underlying template and we cannot access the underlying files and edit templates or themes.

    There are two free themes, Sandbox and Toolbox designed to allow maximum flexibility for CSS editing and creating new “skins”. Toolbox is more modern and includes a lot of support for CSS3 and HTML5, so it is really only limited by your skills and knowledge.

    will I be able to remove all widgets on the sides and have my photos be displayed as a full page photo?

    If you have CSS editing experience the upgrade will allow you to stylize the appearance of themes you find here > Appearance > Themes, but will not allow you to change the functionality, by editing the underlying template. It does not allow you to remove footer links to the theme designer or to Also note that CSS is theme specific, so you cannot use the CSS stylesheets from other themes with the themes at WordPress.COM.
