en WordPress.com Forums › Support Paid wordpress theme Author Posts March 28, 2008 at 11:04 pm #206911 elvaleeMember I have a blog hosted with wordpress. My questions is if I purchase a new wordpress theme designed by third party, am I able to upload this new theme to wordpress and replace the old free theme? If so, what steps involved to upload the new theme? March 28, 2008 at 11:06 pm #207093 ellaellaMember No, the only themes available for wordpress.com blogs are those in your dashboard at Presentation. Sorry it’s not the answer you hoped for. :( March 28, 2008 at 11:16 pm #207095 elvaleeMember So does that mean if I want to start to use a new theme (not one of dashboard themes), I have to move my blog to a different hosting company? March 29, 2008 at 12:19 am #207103 ellaellaMember Yes, exactly. You’d have to self host your blog and all the information about that is at http://wordpress.org March 29, 2008 at 5:46 am #207130 raincoasterMember Or you could purchase the CSS upgrade and get someone to custom-edit a theme for you.
