    I’m new to wordpress and just bought cleancut but I can’t seem to get it installed at wordpress.com. I don’t have an install themes option under the appearance tab so I can’t upload it from the zipped folder. How can I install my theme so I can start editing it?

    I’ll try and help. First Click the little down-arrow to the right of the ‘Appearance’ title in your left-hand sidebar. A drop-down list will list a series of links, from this click ‘Themes’. Now if you look back up toward the top of the page, you’ll see the title ‘Manage Themes’ and directly to the right, you see another grayed out tab that says ‘Install Themes’. Click that tab, and once that page loads you’ll immediately below the tab you should see the following options in small letters “Search | Upload | Featured | Newest | Recently Updated”. Click on the one that says ‘Upload’. That will then show you a browse bar, above it should read ‘Install a theme in .zip format’, click the ‘Browse’ button below that and find the .zip file you’ve downloaded on your computer.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for your response but there is no tab that says Install themes. Do I need to self-host before I can begin editing my site?

    Hey,

    as far as I know wordpress.com doesn’t allow custom themes. You have to self host your blog. You can follow the instructions m azma posted above.
