I took the tutorial on getting started with WordPress a couple of months ago. The recommended design was Weaver II. I can’t find Weaver II. Where is it?
The blog I need help with is tudorcommunications.wordpress.com.
I’m designing a website and wanted to use Weaver II
That theme is only for WordPress>ORG installs.
You can’t install that theme on a free hosted WordPress.com blog. There is no FTP access to WordPress.com free hosted blogs. The only versions of the themes we can use on free hosted WordPress.com blogs are found here in your dashboard > Appearance > Themes and showcased here > http://wordpress.com/themes/
You cannot build your own theme here nor can you upload any third party themes. Also note that we WordPress.com bloggers cannot install any plugins. Both are only for WordPress.ORG installs which run on different software.
Bottom line: There is no upgrade that you can purchase from WordPress.com that provides FTP access, the ability to install plugins, install third party themes and software into free hosted WordPress.com blogs. For a comparison see > http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/
I’m designing a website
Strictly speaking a blog is a website but let’s differentiate. The main difference between a blog structure and website structure is the communication style. Blogs are post based structures that provide for and encourage interactive communication. Websites are page based structures that operate as a one-way noticeboards.
A WordPress blog can either be structured as a page based website or its conventional post based structure can be retained.
