Have you installed WordPress on your server? Once you do that, you can upload and install the theme, then manage your site through WordPress’ interface :)

As Sevenspark says – install WordPress to your server first. Then if you look in the download you will find a documentation/help file and there you will find some instructions on the basics.

Ah you have a Wordpress.com site not self hosting. You need to have your own domain and hosting to use the Wordpress themes from here. We have some free time and could do it for you as a favour if you want. charlie4282@hotmail.com if you want any help or further explanation. Thanks

You’re referring to wordpress.com. If you want to use a custom theme, you need to set up a self-hosted installation on your own server based on the software available from WordPress.org

See WordPress.com and WordPress.org for a good reference :)

Hi – I know this thread is old, but I can’t find the answer I’m looking for. I just bought the jphotolio theme. I unzipped the file and a new folder is on my desktop. When I go to my the backend of my wordpress site Appearance>Themes>Upload New Theme - And now I’m lost! What am I uploading? There’s a lot of stuff in that folder. I tried Style.css – but that didn’t work. Help?
