Thanks in advance, – K December 20, 2007 at 2:54 pm #174830 cjwriterMember We can’t install themes on WordPress.com blogs; we don’t have access to the necessary files to be able to do it. You can do it if you have a blog using WordPress.org software, but you’d have to host it yourself. http://faq.wordpress.com/2005/09/27/edit-my-templates/ If you have the custom CSS upgrade, you can change how your blog looks; colours, design, etc. But it’s recommended that you have experience with CSS to attempt it. Hope that helps. http://faq.wordpress.com/2007/10/18/about-the-custom-css-upgrade/ December 20, 2007 at 3:08 pm #174836 sugarchickMember Yes, it helped alot. Thank you!
