Installing and Adding New Themes (5 posts)

    Hello,

    I have been trying to set up the Arras Theme and realize that the Appearance tab for the version of WordPress that I'm using looks like it's missing a few options.

    In the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LWxa607YG1U&feature=bf_prev&list=PL5A27E3E7FA9578FE it shows that under the Appearance tab there are options to "Add New Themes" and "Upload" existing themes that have been installed.

    Are those options only available on upgraded accounts or accounts made through WordPress.org?

    Are you using WordPress.com or a self hosted WordPress install?

    Currently I'm using a free account from WordPress.com. I think I learned that to upgrade a theme I have installed on my computer I'll need to use a web host like godaddy.com to setup a WordPress account. Is that correct? Is that what you meant by self hosting?

    your thoughts are correct.

    there is some info on that:

    about the difference between .org and .com - http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    you could also ask at http://en.forums.wordpress.com/

    I very much appreciate the links and help. I'm going to set up a web host later this week and test out uploading the Arras Theme.
