    I’m not sure if this is the right place for this (sorry if it is not!), but I have a question regarding free hosting sites that use wordpress.

    I’m trying to find a free hosting site that uses wordpress, but has the ability for me to update my own template. WordPress.com only allows you to use their own templates with minimal customization. I’m hoping to add a brand new template of my choosing.

    Any thoughts?

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

    The only other multi-user sites would be using the same basic software as here, which is a multi-user version of wordpress which means we all share the same underlying theme and wordpress files. That means any change or addition to the themes would affect everyone, just like it would here.

    The only way to have control over themes and such is to self-host a blog and use the single-user version of wordpress downloaded from wordpress.ORG.

    They’re in the same aisle as the free lunches.

    There are some free web hosts around that allow WordPress. I’m not going to promote them here because they are infested with spam, malware and worse.

    Decent quality hosting for WordPress can be had for $7/mo:

    I assure you the disadvantages of dealing with those free web hosts are not worth the $7 a month you’ll save.
