You need to login using the acocunt which purchased the file (you have no buyer badge on this account), and contact the author

You are partly right.

So when you buy a domain and hosting WordPress is NOT there.

You have to install WordPress onto the website first to be able to use it.

Once this is done then you can add the theme and edit like you would on WordPress.com.

1) Buy hosting & domain and connect them

2) Download WordPress files (NOT theme) from wordpress.org

3) Install these files on to your website

4) Download the theme from your Themeforest account

5) Install theme on WordPress located on your domain and hosting

6) Edit like you would using WordPress.com

You need to install WP on the 123Reg site first, install the theme and use the admin/editor there.

You can do it locally (on your PC then upload it) BUT this is more complex unless you have experience doing it

Opt 1: In your download page click download & select ‘installable WordPress File Only’ & use this

Opt 2: Are you sure you have the WP theme and NOT a HTML file?

Opt 3: Are you using your own hosting and domain NOT WordPress.com

Opt 4: Unzip the theme folder and use ftp to install it

1) Make sure you have your OWN domain and hosting (NOT WordPress.com site) so use Godaddy, or hostgator, or mediatemple, or WPengine etc

2) Visit https://en-gb.wordpress.org/ & download the WordPress files

3) Install these on your website (there may be an easier or quick way to do this depending on where your hosting comes from)

4) Upload & activate the new theme

Exactly – NO theme form here will work with WordPress.COM as you cannot install 3rd party themes on it.

All themes here will work on WordPress & to make them work:

1) Make sure you have your OWN domain and hosting (NOT WordPress.com site)

2) Visit https://en-gb.wordpress.org/ & download the WordPress files

3) Install these on your website (there may be an easier or quick way to do this depending on where your hosting comes from)

4) Upload & activate the new theme

I also have problems with installing a theme on wordpress. I already have a blog but I don’t know how to put this new theme. Do I have to buy a domain from wordpress or what?

You cannot use themes form here with wordpress.COM websites. You have to have your OWN domain and hosting
