    I joined WordPress last night and bought a theme for my blog. However, I was trying to upload my purchased theme and I cannot find the upload theme button the Mojo installation tutorial talks about. WordPress wants me to buy a yearly package just to upload this theme, do I have to do that or is there another way I can install this theme?

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

    You are confusing wordpress.COM hosted sites like yours and wordpress.ORG software installs on paid hosting.

    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/

    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/

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

    The wordpress.ORG support forum link is http://wordpress.org/support/ The wordpress.ORG login link is here https://login.wordpress.org/ If you do not have an account yet then click Create an account https://login.wordpress.org/register/ and if you have lost an account password click Lost password? https://login.wordpress.org/lostpassword/
