This information is only relevant to users who signed up for a plan on WordPress.com. If you have self-hosting for your WordPress.org site, this does not apply to you.
- You cannot upload an outside theme unless you are on the "Business" or "eCommerce" plan at WordPress.com. This is covered on both the WordPress.com site and our site:
- If you are using the WordPress.com Business or eCommerce Plan, you can access the full WordPress Dashboard as seen in the tutorials by clicking on the "WP Admin" link at the bottom of the WordPress.com dashboard.
