Whilst searching the web i stumbled across a few sites that provide free, third party wordpress themes. Is it possible to use these themes on your blog and if so how? I have dobloaded one i like but don’t know what to do with it now?
Third party themes cannot be uploaded and run on wordpress.com hosted blogs. The themes we can use are located here -> Presentation -> Themes
The themes you are seeing online are coded to run on wordpress.org software. Our wordpress.com software is different. Therefore any theme that is brought over must be adapted to run on wordpress MU (multiuser). You can locate a theme you like for wordpress.org and then request that it be adapted to run on our software here. During support hours use this link to do so http://wordpress.com/contact-support/
