I need help.

I’m pretty familiar with Wordpress, at least the old Wordpress. I set up a new blog for a new domain today and see a lot of changes. Also bought a theme on here.

I see Wordpress no longer has the tab to upload themes. There is also a message on the Upload themes help page that says that WP no longer has the infrastructure to have outside custom themes, or something similar to that.

Trying to find a way to upload the custom theme. Help needed please? I have GoDaddy domain and hosting.

Thanks.

Hi

Do you mean you are trying to install a theme in WP 3.5.2?

There are 2 ways to upload a theme. Go to Appearance > Themes in the backend, click Install themes tab, then click Upload option.

Second way is to install it via FTP in the directory: /wp-content/themes/

Thanks

Sounds like you may be using wordpress.com? This does not support external custom themes.

Have you installed the software from wordpress.ORG on your domain?

Thanks for the replies. I realized it was because I was using wordpress.com. I just installed wordpress.org. Going to start over so I can have the Install themes tab again. Thank you.
