I purchased the magazine child them through the studiopress website and I do not see how to upload it on my http://www.theknoxscore.wordpress.com site. Do I need to upgrade to self-hosting first? I bought the theme so I could install it on the subdomain first. not sure if i am missing something or not
The blog I need help with is theknoxscore.wordpress.com.
We cannot add themes at wordpress.COM. We are limited to the 145+ (and growing) themes found in the dashboard under appearance > themes. Themes found on the internet are for self-hosted wordpress blogs using the software from wordpress.ORG.
Themes at wordpress.COM have to be modified to work within the restrictions here and to support the unique features. Themes straight off the internet (which are for self-hosted blogs) will not work here.
If you have CSS editing experience, you can get the Custom Design Upgrade, which will allow you to stylize the themes here, but it does not allow you to change the functionality. CSS is also themes specific so you cannot use the CSS from one theme with another theme. Before buying the upgrade, you can go to appearance > Custom Design and to the CSS tab and wordpress has provided a preview function where you can try out changes before you buy the upgrade.
There is no FTP access to free hosted WordPress.COM blogs and we cannot install individual plugins or themes into them. Those found on the internet are for WordPress.ORG installs which run on different software.
On free hosted wordpress.COM blogs we can only use the themes which have been coded to run on this multi-user software and made available to us here. > Appearance > Themes and no others.
I suggest you go back to the site you purchased the theme on and get a refund unless using it is a must for you. if it is then to have complete control over a blog, the ability to upload themes and plugins, and to edit themes and templates then your option is to hire a web host and get a free software install from WordPress.ORG and self host it. http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/
G’day TSP :)
