    I've just signed up for a wordpress blog, and I have NO IDEA, how it works.

    I intend to use it to promote movies, but I can't even figure out where to upload the Worpress Theme that I have.

    Can anyone shed me some light on this?

    Upload the files into your server. Upload the theme in the themes folder and pluginf in your plugins folder. Once in, activate them all and you should be done..

    If that is a free blog on the .com site then you may have some difficulties. Most of the good stuff, like plugins, can only be used on a self-hosted wp blog. That means that you need to have your own hosting and domain.

    I can't even figure out how to access the server.

    I tried going to Filezilla and filling in my details.

    Host: wordpess.com
    Login: myusername
    Pass: my password

    It prompt me saying there was no such user...

    Wordpress.com gives you the ability to do very limited customisations. You cant upload plugins etc.

    To really try wordpress, install it on a domain you've got.

    AHHH, Thanks!!
    You mean wordpress.ORG right??

    Ok, that definitely explains something!!

    On a second note, I have purchased a hostgator account a few weeks back, and it got disabled because they wanted to CALL ME and they wanted me to UPLOAD my Personal ID.

    I'm looking for a good host that has fantastico, but that I can sign up anonymously, ie (fake information), and doens't need to call or check my information.

    Any advises on getting such a host?

    Thanks.

    Are you hosting wordpress on free server or a paid one?
    Anyhow, in which shape you have wordpress files.
