    I just added wordpress (version 2.6.2) to my godaddy hosted website - and am anxious to put all of my content up on it, but I can't even change the theme! The directions say "you generally just need to upload the theme folder into your wp-content/themes directory" but every time I plug in http://www.nojunkfood.org/wp-content/themes.php it goes to an error page. Could you please tell me where I go to upload a new theme/layout? I downloaded the new theme, i just don't know how to get it onto my site. Thanks!

    fist upload the theme (via ftp) to http://www.nojunkfood.org/wp-content/themes/ folder. the new theme should be in its own folder.

    after that goto http://www.nojunkfood.org/wp-admin/themes.php and look for it.

    If it doesn't show up there was something wrong with your upload. reupload and try again.

    But where exactly do i go to upload it? What link, button, or page would "upload" theme be on? Whenever I go to: http://www.nojunkfood.org/wp-content/themes/ it says error - so that can't be where I upload. Sorry if it's really obvious, but I just can't figure it out - thanks!

    You could have saved a lot of time (and posting) by reading the documentation:

    upload via FTP

    and your link is wrong. it needs wp-admin not wp-content
