    Hello. Can I upload a zip file and not just a css file ?

    The blog I need help with is


    What are you trying to upload?



    Im trying to upload my full new theme. Icons, css in a zip folder



    In the instuctions says

    Access your Web server using an FTP client or Web server administration tools.

    I thought I could use WordPress as my web server to upload everything


    We cannot add themes at wordpress.COM. We are limited to the 100+ (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 here have to be modified to work within the restrictions here and to support the unique features here. Themes straight off the internet (which are for self-hosted blogs) will not work here.

    CSS is also themes specific so you cannot use the CSS from one theme with another theme.

    To use your theme, you would have to self-host a wordpress site on a third-party hosting service such as godaddy, bluehost, etc. using the software from wordpress.ORG. Figure about $10 to $25 per month all costs considered.



    Thank you !


    You are welcome.
