  1. Hi there,

    I have been trying to customize the appearence of my blog for weeks and no matter what I do, any of the changes will take place. I have also been trying to ad facebook and twitter buttons on a showcase side bar, and they wont come up. could you please give me a hand? i will really appreciate it.

    The blog I need help with is knightsanddamsels.wordpress.com.

  2. No changes you try out aside from those such as Custom Background, Custom Header, etc. which are stated on the theme description pages in the features column (right hand side)
    will be visible to visitors unless you purchase an annually renewable custom design upgrade.

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/editing-css/

    You do not need to load the design tools unless you have the Custom Design upgrade. All of these functions can be accessed from your dashboard - without loading the custom design tools - no upgrade required.
    Appearance > Header
    Appearance > Background
    Appearance > Theme Options (applicable only to some themes)
    Settings > Reading (set a static front page)
    Site Title and Tagline > Settings > General

    If you are using the preview mode for the Custom Design upgrade some of the settings in that mode will save but they won't show up on the front end unless you purchase the upgrade.

    To go back to the free options, go to Appearance → Themes → Customize → Colors and click the "exit the preview" link in yellow at the top of the panel on the right.

  3. Nothing Found
    Apologies, but no results were found for the requested archive. Perhaps searching will help find a related post.

    That error message can easily be addressed. Publish a post and it will be gone. By default the front page of your blog displays all posts (not pages) in reverse chronological order, with the most recently published post on top. The 404 (page not found) error message on the front page of the blog appeared because the Admin of the blog deleted the placeholder Hello World post. http://en.support.wordpress.com/not-found/

    This article is very useful for those who have the Twenty Eleven theme.

  4. Hi there,

    I have been trying to customize the appearence of my blog for weeks and no matter what I do, any of the changes will take place.

    Would you mind giving me a specific example of what you're trying to change, and where in your dashboard you're doing it? I'll be glad to help once I know a bit more.

    I have also been trying to ad facebook and twitter buttons on a showcase side bar, and they wont come up.

    I'm seeing these widgets in your footer:

    If you wanted to display them on the Showcase Sidebar instead, just keep in mind that you'll need to assign the Showcase Template to one of your pages, as explained on the Twenty Eleven information page.

    To get started with the custom Showcase Page Template you need to create a page for it. Choose the Showcase Template under page templates in any page, save it, and assign it as the front page in Settings → Reading. This will change your site from the standard Twenty Eleven blog look to Twenty Eleven’s fancy showcase. You still have you regular blog list at hand for several views, like categories, searches, and tags and you can specify another page to work as your blog if you want to.

    Just let me know if you need further help.

  5. Thank you very much to both of you! very helpful! thanks!

  6. You're welcome. :-)
