    Hi All,

    I am brand spankin new to wordpress migrating over from xanga. I need help in changing the theme of my wordpress page.

    I looked under admin-in my dashboard and there weren't many to choose from. I have been to multiple sites and have seen that there were options to have different layouts (there was a distinction between those that were free and premium- I am a free member currently)

    After looking I kept seeing instructions for 2.3 and not 2.7.

    I came to wordpress.org and to my surprise found ALOT of layouts but I don't know how to get them on my page.

    Can someone help me?

    Well the first thing you will need to do is to get the themes on your host.

    The directory should be .../wp-content/themes/
    I'm not sure what kind of access you have the box, but you can ftp the files over or wget and unzip.
    Once unzipped and in the right place, if you go back to your theme selector, you should see your new themes.

    I hope this helps.
