    Hi I just created a theme at After completing the new theme these are the instructions it gives me after pressing the save button.

    Your theme folder have been created
    \My Documents\wordpressthemegen\wordpressthemegen53206

    Upload the theme folder to /wp-content/themes/

    Go to your WordPress admin
    Select the tab Presentation
    Select your new theme ::wordpressthemegen53206

    So had a look on internet first they said it was now called design not presentation and then a newer one said it has been changed from design to appearance. But I still cant manage to find the file anywhere?

    If you can help would be much appreciated? Thanks Charles Leahy

    The blog I need help with is


    We cannot add themes at wordpress.COM. We are limited to the 145+ (and growing) themes found in the dashboard under appearance > themes. Themes found on the internet are for self-hosted wordpress blogs using the software from wordpress.ORG.

    Themes at wordpress.COM have to be modified to work within the restrictions here and to support the unique features. Themes straight off the internet (which are for self-hosted blogs) will not work here.

    The differences between and sites.

    If you have CSS editing experience, you can get the Custom Design Upgrade, which will allow you to stylize the themes here, but it does not allow you to change the functionality. CSS is also themes specific so you cannot use the CSS from one theme with another theme. Before buying the upgrade, you can go to appearance > Custom Design and to the CSS tab and wordpress has provided a preview function where you can try out changes before you buy the upgrade.



    Thanks a million for the answer cheers, have a good day or night depending where you are in the world ;-)
