    There are only 6 themes located in my "Presentation" "Editor", none of which work for my blog. I really like the "Trees" theme I saw in Theme Viewer ID:890 but can't figure how to upload it. I downloaded the zipfile to my desktop and when I open it there are like 15 files. What do I do with these to get them into my "Presentation" area of my admin so I can change the look of my site? Thanks.

    you need to upload the files to your :

    /public_html/wp-content/themes/here

    upload the folder that contain the files then you should be able to see it in your presentation .

    good luck .

    I tried that. I opened a browser and went to http://www.website.com/wp-content/themes and it showed links to the six themes available and a "parent directory" link. I tried to drag the zip folder in but it would let me and there's no place to say browse and upload from my desktop. Sorry to sound ignorant, but so how exactly do I upload this zipfile into the wp-content/themes

    you need to use an ftp program you can use your internet explorer if you dont have one .

    ftp://your-domain

    file -> login as

    after your login your supposed to be able to transfer file ... just navigate to the correct folder and drag your folder .

    I don't have an FTP program and when I typed in ftp://my-domain I got an error / timed out message. Any suggestions where I should go from here?
