Thanks, Brian The blog I need help with is brianorion.wordpress.com. March 19, 2014 at 2:39 am #1704088 raincoasterMember Well, no. I can save you some time: it cannot be done. External themes and plugins cannot be installed here. March 19, 2014 at 2:44 am #1704095 brianorionMember Is it only if you have a prem. account? I really like a theme on this website. http://topwpthemes.com/ March 19, 2014 at 2:46 am #1704098 raincoasterMember No, it is only if you have a VIP account, which starts at $30,000 a year and costs about ten thousand dollars for the theme.

You can install a theme from http://topwpthemes.com/ if you setup your own web hosting account that is separate from WordPress.com. This page has more information about the differences. Check it out and let me know if you still have any questions! http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/ Just out of curiosity, which theme at http://topwpthemes.com/ did you love??
