Blog appearance not saving

  1. the header font style keeps on going back to the default. I change and save it, but I still dont see the blog reflecting the change. I cleared my cache and cookies, restarted my computer, tried a different font. Help! anyone know what is wrong? I hate the default font!

    please and thank you

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

  2. Hello there,
    If you have not purchased the custom design upgrade note that 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.
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/editing-css/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/custom-fonts/

    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. You cannot change the font size on any titles without a custom design upgrade. If you are into fiddling about with font size each and every post you make by using the Text editor (HTML editor) then you can change it in the body text in posts and pages.

    These are 3 ways to change fonts on WordPress.com blogs.

    (1) Changing font families, colors and size in text in posts or pages either post by post or page by page by coding into the Text ie. HTML editor. http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2009/07/11/formatting-text-pt-5/

    (2) Changing font colors in text in posts or pages either post by post or page by page using the #4 icon (Select text color – change the text color) in Row 2 the Visual editor. http://en.support.wordpress.com/visual-editor/#row-2

    (3) Changing all font families, colors and sizes throughout the whole blog by purchasing an annually renewable Custom Design upgrade and using Typekit Fonts with Staff support.

    Why bother doing that at all? Everyone can change the font size on any site they visit on the internet in a second. http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2010/01/19/how-to-change-font-text-size-in-your-browser/
