What do I need to do? The blog I need help with is kemberley.com. December 27, 2012 at 8:34 pm #1107097 kulchathezineMember Hi – Same with us. Just purchased the Aggregate Theme from Elegant Themes. Are trying to install theme but the option isn’t there.

There is no FTP access to free hosted WordPress.com blogs and we bloggers cannot install any plugins or upload any third party themes or software. Those are for WordPress.ORG installs which run on different software. http://en.support.wordpress.com/ftp-access/ http://en.support.wordpress.com/plugins/ http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/adding-new-themes/ There is no upgrade that you can purchase from WordPress.com that provides FTP access, the ability to install plugins, third party themes and software into free hosted WordPress.com blogs.
