    I started my website here http://stylingtheman.com and wanted to make certain changes to suit my liking, but was told by wp.com, that they couldn't accommodate the kind of customization I needed:(..can someone help me with this. Of course I should have gotten the template from wp.org and do self hosting, but I like the layout of the template and they way the ARCHIVE/LINKS align. Would anyone be able to help me on this?

    Much appreciated

    These forums only support self-hosted sites - so you'll need to ask on WordPress.COM OR move to a self-hosted site. We can't help you with a WordPress.COM site.

    So I've downloaded the template for self hosting, but don't know how to open it. Can you help me with this?

    You first have to install WordPress - and if you want your site to be accessible on the internet, you will need to set up hosting. If you want to install it on your local computer, you can also do that, but it will not be visible on any other computers. See:

    That is just the theme - you have to have WordPress installed on a server before you can use a theme. You cannot just use a theme - they don't work that way.

    This I know, my friend. I was just showing you this link. I just signed up for this one with BlueHost

    Cool, so if the theme is from the repository on this site here:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/themes , we can help you with it.

    Otherwise, we can help with general WordPress questions, but for theme-specific help, you'll need to ask the vendor/developer.

    For information about installing themes, see:
