[closed] Using a downloaded custom theme on a wordpress hosted site (2 posts)

    Hi.
    I'm hosting the site thatonecultureblog.wordpress.com
    I would like to use a custom theme I've downloaded from another site. Is this possible while the site is hosted on wordpress?
    I'm not sure what to put for the FTP address and my username and password when using filezilla to try it using the wordpress instructions. I've also read that you should be able to see something that says to upload a theme from the dashboard but I can't seem to find that.

    Also I'm not exactly sure what version of wordpress I'm using, but I just registered the site today.

    I am also looking at building websites for clients from my main business using wordpress but would like to be able to show them a preview before they commit to buying the domain name and hosting the site on their own so I will be trying to do this in the future as well.

    Thanks!
