    Hi everyone,

    Newbie question – I’ve downloaded “Adapt” theme into my “downloads” folder on Mac.
    How do I access the search and upload function to find and apply it in WordPress? (I’ve tried the sidebar Appearance>Theme but all that gives me are the options already on wordpress, not the option to upload a new one.

    Thanks

    The blog I need help with is seianmulholland.com.

    @auxclass is correct.

    Themes can’t be uploaded to blogs hosted on WordPress.com. They can only be uploaded to self-hosted blogs running on WordPress.org software.

    On WordPress.com, you can select from a variety of themes to change your blog’s appearance. You can read more about customizing the appearance and theme of your blog on WordPress.com here:
