    I am trying to get a viva theme to dreamweaver and thought I had to create (per instructions on the web) a wordpress site so I could copy the files… however I have just found out that does not allow custom themes…

    Now I am looking at your screen shot in this tutorial and not sure what you are using to install the viva theme.

    Could you assist please =)

      Yes, does not allow custom themes. You have to install the version of WordPress.
