    You can’t use an external theme on a blog hosted here. They are for independently-hosted blogs using WordPress.ORG software only.

    Unpacking the package…

    Installing the theme…

    The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

    Theme install failed.

    You might be in the wrong forum – what is the real URL of the blog you are trying to install the theme in??

    Godaddy themes are for WordPress.ORG blogs. http://dalyphotog.wordpress.com/ is a WordPress.COM blog. You cannot use that theme on that blog.

    If you bought a theme, then you will also need to pay a hosting company to get your site online. The WordPress.ORG software is free, so you can make the theme you purchased function online.

    Please look at this information about the different flavors of WordPress:
