How to I upload it to wordpress? The blog I need help with is dalyphotog.wordpress.com. February 12, 2013 at 3:26 am #1152864 raincoasterMember You can’t use an external theme on a blog hosted here. They are for independently-hosted blogs using WordPress.ORG software only.

Theme install failed. February 12, 2013 at 4:39 am #1152875 auxclassMember You might be in the wrong forum – what is the real URL of the blog you are trying to install the theme in??
