    I want to change the site to a new template called ‘Activello’ – the wordpress upload is not giving me this option. How can I upload Activello?

    The blog I need help with is passionforlanguage.wordpress.com.

    You can’t.

    The only themes we can use on WordPress.com hosted blogs are licensed and adapted to run on our multiuser software the themes are found here http://wordpress.com/themes/ and in your dashboard at > Appearance > Themes

    We cannot:
    upload any third party themes,
    create child themes,
    create our own themes,
    edit templates,
    create own own layouts,
    or use stylesheets from other themes.

    There is no FTP access to any wordpress.com sites. See:
    Themes ┬╗Uploading Custom Themes
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/adding-new-themes/

    See: Moving to Self-Hosted WordPress
    https://move.wordpress.com/

    P.S. Also be keenly aware that you cannot transfer any theme from https://wordpress.com/themes/ which is licensed and adapted to run on WordPress.COM software to a WordPress.ORG site, and visa versa. The two run on different software and have different versions of themes with the same names. Read the differences here http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    Thanks for this Timethief!

    So, how would I be able to use this third party template?

    You cannot use it on any site hosted by wordpress.COM.

    If you wish to have your site hosted here get a refund from the theme vendor.

    If you do not wish to remain hosted here See: Moving to Self-Hosted WordPress https://move.wordpress.com/ as you can use that theme on a wordpress.ORG software install on paid hosting only.
