    Hi! I purchased a WordPress theme from ‘Theme Forest’ designated for automobile listings. I’m looking to apply that theme to my WordPress site. However, when I navigate to the ‘My Site’ tab and I click on the ‘Themes’ settings button, I don’t find an option to apply my theme. It only seems to allow the free themes provided by WordPress. Any suggestion on how I can apply my purchased theme? Thank you!

    The blog I need help with is example807885.wordpress.com.

    You can’t install any theme that is not found at https://wordpress.com/themes/ into any site hosted by wordpress.COM.

    If you are reading anything that makes you think that bloggers can install any third party or custom themes on sites hosted by wordpress.COM, then you are mistaken/misinformed. You are confusing wordpress.COM hosted blogs and wordpress.ORG installs on paid hosting.

    This is the wordpress.COM support forum. There is no FTP access https://en.support.wordpress.com/ftp-access/ to sites hosted here and you cannot upload any custom themes or third party themes, or create your own theme here at wordpress.COM, or use stylesheets from another theme. You can do those only on wordpress.ORG installs on paid hosting.

    The only themes we can use on WordPress.com hosted blogs are licensed and adapted to run on our multiuser software the themes are found here http://wordpress.com/themes/ and in your dashboard at > Appearance > Themes
    Read: http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/adding-new-themes/
    There is no upgrade you can buy here that changes that.

    If your site remains hosted here at wordpress.COM and you purchased a third-party theme, then you will have to get a refund.

    Alternatively, this guide will explain how to move your WordPress.com site to another hosting platform:
