    I got word press with my yahoo web hosting package, and I'm try to upload a theme from the wp theme directory, but when I try to upload it to wp-content/themes, I get a message saying "themes" cannot be modified. What do I do?

    Might need to change the permissions on wp-content and its subfolders to 777.

    See Changing_File_Permissions

    I followed instructions in "changing file permissions," but I just get a message saying "you can only read." Are there restrictions with using word press through my yahoo web host?

    I'm pretty sure the File Manager in Yahoo allows permission changes.

    What are you using to upload the files? I prefer using FileZilla. With FileZilla you can also change folder/directory permissions.
