[resolved] Custom theme - Access wp-content without FTP (7 posts)

    Hi there, My company has just purchased a business that uses wordpress for it's site. I am new to wordpress but understand how to build sites with dreamweaver, html & css. I can usually look at code and figure out what I need to change or edit to get the results I want.

    That said I am struggling because my site has a custom theme, but they've never had a hosting account anywhere. Is there somewhere I can go to download or access the wp-content without having copies of the original files? I know there is not a file manager or place to access the specific files I am looking for, but is there some other way to download or access my theme?

    I have spent the last two days trying to find access via my dashboard control panel. I have also done multiple searches and am still coming up blank. If there is anyone who can advise me on a way to access the root files, wp-content, I would be most grateful.

    Thanks for any and all help.

    Is this a wordpress.com site or a self-hosted WordPress install?

    I'm not sure, is there a way to tell after it's been set up?

    Thank you

    If you post the site's url, we could have a look at it.

    This is a self-hosted site - which means that your company have a hosting account. From my investigations, it would seem that you have an account with Dreamhost.

    Ah, okay, when I spoke to the previous owner he had no knowledge of it. I will speak with Dreamhost. Thank you for your help, hopefully I can get access to these files.
