    Something seem to be wrong since I can’t change my current theme. Everytime I try to activate a new one I get a message saying “cheatin’ uh?”

    I even tried downloading the theme that I want as a zip file to be able to upload it myself but I can’t even find the appearance button – since it doesn’t exist where it says it should.

    Help me please!
    Best regards,
    Kim

    The blog I need help with is rosencranzblogg.com.

    Stop reading documentation for WordPress.ORG blogs. You have a WordPress.COM blog. All the themes you can use are on the dashboard Themes page. Which theme are you trying to change TO? Are you the admin of that blog? Which exact steps are you taking to change the theme, and at what point does the error message pop up?

    Well, since the simple “change theme” didn’t work I started googling other options.

    From the overview site “my blogs” I simply click the “change theme” button. Once I find the theme that I want (syntax) I click the activate button and then the blue button with “customize your site” labeled on it. And that’s when I get the “cheatin’ uh?” message.

    Yes I am admin.

    To confirm, you are trying to change the theme for the blog at rosencranzblogg.com?

    If so, are you going to https://rosencranzblogg.wordpress.com/wp-admin/themes.php to activate your new theme when you get the error?
