WordPress Tutorial – How to Download, Install and Activate a New WordPress Theme

This Intermediate-level WordPress tutorial shows how to change your theme in a blog/website hosted on wordpress.com. It also shows how to find new themes using sites like themes.wordpress.net and install them on a blog/website that uses third-party hosting. By third-party hosting I mean a web host that you pay for, like GoDaddy.com or Yahoo! or pair Networks hosting. Once you find a theme you like, you can download it, unzip the file, upload the theme to the wp-content > themes folder for your blog/website, and then activate it in the Dashboard.
