    What do you mean download? Or do you mean upload? Better question is where are you ‘downloading’ themes from?

    When you log in to wordpress. on the left side there is an appearance tab. I then click that to go into the theme tab. on top you will see install themes.

    Uploading a theme. Got it. What is the error that you are getting?

    It is more like installing a theme is the problem. I try to click on the newest tab or the recently updated tab and all I get is this “An unexpected error occurred. Something may be wrong with or this server’s configuration. If you continue to have problems, please try the support forums.

    Try again”

    what is happening??

    thank you for ur reply jose!

    Seems I’m not the only one having problems ‘downloading” or “installing” a theme. Eclipse is the theme I downloaded. But now I don’t know what to do. Can someone please help me too?

    Is WordPress the only place to develop blog? I would like someplace that actually has support.

    WordPress is free software – and we provide limited FREE help on these forums (no one helping out here is paid). If you want more help, consider hiring someone:

    Or you could consider WordPress.COM – which has less flexibility and fewer options, but you won’t have to take care of as many things. They may also have a paid option for more help. You can learn more about the differences here:

    That said, here is information about using themes:

    I love the Pinboard theme, but I don’t know how to downloaded it to my WordPress blog. Can someone help me?

    Is your site, by chance, on WordPress.COM? If so, you’re in the wrong forums and you cannot use themes other places on your site there.

    If not, see the link posted right above yours on Using Themes.
