I just purchased WordPress Value Bundle worth $99 from WordPress and now I am having a hard time customizing my blog's theme.

I am unable to install 3rd party themes. Can I just customize fonts, background images, etc.? What good is that? I am super confused and lost.

Why cant I use a customized theme with all the jQuery stuff? Did I just lose $99?

I wanted to use this theme for my blog. What do I do now? What can be done?

If your blog is hosted on wordpress.com you can't actually use 3rd party themes.

The custom design option allows you to modify the css and the font's but nothing else - especially not the html.

If you need this functionality i'd recommend you get a refund, export your wordpress.com content, move to a self hosted solution and use the wordpress import plugin to reassemble your site.

When you use Wordpress.com, even with premium features, all you can do is pick one of their themes and customise the css.

I would ask for your money back and try and find hosting which supports PHP. Then you can install wordpress and any theme you want.
