Installing free theme onto private hosted wordpress blog

    Hi! I’m new to WP from Blogger. I have a privately hosted account with BlueHost and am working on transferring and converting my blog over the WordPress software.

    I’m looking at themes here at wordpress.com/themes and found a few free ones I want to try (also a premium I might purchase but not until I figure out how to install a free one). I found this free one: http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/fresh-and-clean/

    But there is no option to download that theme, or any of them, that I can see. The only option I see is to “Activate”. When I click that, it doesn’t activate on my privately hosted blog. I believe I need the option to download the theme and then upload it to my hosted blog themes in its dashboard. I did look through the pre-installed theme options there, but don’t see any of the ones available here in the wordpress.com gallery.

    I’d be grateful for any help or pointing out something obvious I may be missing!

    Thank you!


    Also, if anyone knows how: When I log into my WordPress.com account, my privately hosted blog does not show up in “My Blogs”. It only shows as a “Linked Blog”. Is there a way to place under “My Blogs”? And to have the same username and log-in for my hosted wordpress blog account and my free wordpress account?

    The blog I need help with is www.americankraut.com.

    The blog you specified at http://www.americankraut.com does not appear to be hosted at WordPress.com.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you’ll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don’t understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It’ll help people to answer your question.
