I bought a theme on theme forest, but for the life of me I don’t know how to get it installed on wordpress. All the tutorials tell me I go to my wordpress dashboard and just click on appearances and upload themes. This option is not available on my dashboard though.

Do I need to be hosted by someone other than wordpress.com? I think this kind of information should really be on the themeforest site, I think many people have this problem!

Please help!

Yes you need to have your own domain and hosting. WordPress.com does not support external themes
