How to install the theme in wordpress


#1

Hi,
this is the first time I purchased a theme for wordpress. I got the jednotka wordpress theme. I downloaded and unzipped the wine alright. When I go to my wordpress admin panel and in appearance look for “add theme” there is no such option. I am not sure what I am doing wrong. I got my domain and hosting with wordpress.com and I am trying to get this theme installed there.
Thank you for your help,
Masha

Hi Masha,

Unfortunately, wordpress.com doesn’t allow you to use custom themes (or plugins), only the themes they provide. To use themes that you buy at ThemeForest (or anywhere else on the web), you need to have a self-hosted version of WordPress installed from WordPress.org

Here’s an article showing the differences between WordPress.org and WordPress.com

Hope that helps!
