Uploading the Zip File to install an Elegant Theme in my WordPress Blog

    I have a wordpress.com blog and I have purchased the elegant themes package and have downloaded it. I’m now instructed to upload the zip file by going to the wp-admin section of my blog, select Appearances then the Themes tab and the choose the Install Themes tab to upload the zip file. Unfortunately after a couple of hours I still can’t find those tabs in that order. I can’t find the Install Theme tab.

    Thank you for your help. Thank You!!

    The blog I need help with is 101foodmagazines.wordpress.com.


    We cannot add/upload themes at wordpress.COM. We are limited to the 200+ (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.

    The differences between wordpress.com and wordpress.org (self-hosted) sites.

    Contact the theme author and explain you have a wordpress.com blog and they should give you a refund.



    Thank you so very much. I thought I was loosing my mind. My blog is only in the draft stage. I can easily start over in wordpress.org unless there would be a great disadvantage in doing that that I’m not aware of??

    Thanks again. You’ve been a tremendous help.
