My friend and I don't have access to the same themes?

  1. I am trying to help a friend with her blog theme. I recommended she use the theme Confit, however she couldn't find it when she was in her dashboard, and instead picked "delicate". She wanted to make some changes to that theme, but when I went in to my dashboard, I couldn't find "Delicate". It seems like we have access to different themes. Is that possible?

    She is using a self-hosted version of WordPress, which means she pays for hosting.

    Your site is hosted for free with Some of the limitations within is that you don't have access to the same themes.

    Following up on what dustinhartzler shared, there is no FTP access to free hosted blogs and we cannot install plugins, upload any third party themes, create child themes, or create our own themes or edit templates.

    The only themes you can use on a free hosted blog are those found here > Appearance > Themes and showcased here >

    There is no upgrade you can purchase that changes that.

  6. Thanks everyone.

  7. You're welcome from me. :)
