    How do I add new themes? I seem to be experiencing some diffulties. First what I did was downloaded the file and saved it to my computer, but it will not let me open it because it is a WinZip file which I do not have paid for. Once i uploaded it into the wp-content/themes directory it showed up on the main page as a "Broken file".

    Also, how do I edit the theme editor. Is it aloud or no? If so please let me know how this is possible.

    you have to unzip the zip first. Get winzip -- its free (basically) with a nag.

    You upload the files, ONCE UNZIPPED to your /wp-content/themes/ directory and they need to stay in the folder that is present when you unzipped. Its easier to see once youve gotten that far.
