    I just bought a new theme from themeforest (responsive chocolate theme) and I want to install it. Do I have to purchase wordpress pro to do this? I am a complete beginner and this is so confusing.
    The manual that came with the theme says I should be able to click “Appearence” and then “Install Theme” and “Upload.”
    Thank u for your help.

    You are limited to the 220++ themes you find in your Dashboard >> Appearance >> Themes

    You can not upload outside themes – it is a security and features issue – the themes here are highly modified to give you more features than a standard theme – lots and lots of extra widgets to make up for the you can’t do Plug-in’s here either

    You should ask for a refund – you have made a common error

    Please read this about the different flavors of wordpress:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    If you are hosted for free on wp.COM then the only themes we can use are on your dashboard.
    dashboard—>appearance—>themes
    or here:
    http://theme.wordpress.com/

    Note that the various paid upgrades don’t mean you are able to download themes from the internet.

    If you want something else, then you must find and pay a host for your site. The wp.ORG software is free.

    Thank you both for your responses. I will try and host the site because the theme is very pretty. Thanks.
