    Sorry but if you are going to blog here at WordPress.com then you cannot use that theme and will have to return it.

    We do not have FTP access to free hosted WordPress.com blogs and we not able to upload third party themes.
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/ftp-access/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/adding-new-themes/

    The only themes you can use on a free hosted WordPress.com blog are those found here > Appearance > Themes and showcased here > http://wordpress.com/themes/ We cannot access and edit any templates underlying our themes. Only Staff can edit as every blog wearing the same theme is using the same template.

    Unless you are prepared to pay for a VIP account, http://vip.wordpress.com/our-services/ there is no upgrade you can purchase that changes this at WordPress.COM.

    To upload themes you need to hire a web host and set up a WordPress.ORG install. http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    You also need to read the terms of service for what you want to do with your blog – not going to work here

    #1205057

    and one of the themes i want to use is in the link you gave me thistimethisspace !!!

    Because there is no FTP access and there is no means of uploading a theme that’s coded to run on WordPress>ORG software into a WordPress.com blog which runs on different software.

    your not making sense to me as like i said the theme i want to use is in the link you gave me !

    Did you buy the theme here?
    Dashboard > Store > My Upgrades

    If the answer is yes see here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/premium-themes/
    Activating a Premium theme is similar to activating a Free theme. From your dashboard menu navigate to Appearance -> Themes and click on the Premium link. There you’ll see a familiar grid of all the available Premium themes.

    If the answer is no I did not buy it here > Dashboard > Store > My upgrades not then you cannot use it on a free hosted WordPress.COM blog.

    Note: There are themes with the same name that are coded differently. One version for WordPres.ORG and one for WordPress.COM.

    Will I Be Able To Use Plugins ?

    I repeat again There is no FTP access to free hosted WordPress.com blogs. That means we cannot upload third party themes and we cannot install any plugins.

    For the third time I ask: Please read this > http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    If you cannot read and understand what is stated there then blogging is not going to be your thing. Bloggers have excellent reading, writing and comprehension skills in order to have successful blogs.

    @buysellswapit
    It’s too bad you did not read for yourself what Staff said about no installing third party themes and no installing plugins in this entry http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    Let’s keep this simple. On your WordPress.com blog:

    1) You can only use themes you find on your dashboard themes page, no others, no matter what they say.

    2) you can’t use plugins. Ever.

    3) you cannot run a classified ad or auction site at all. It is against the Terms of Service and the software for ecommerce will not run here.
