change CSS failed

  1. I purchased the CSS customization for a year but I cannot change the CSS. I tried to paste the Google "Analytics tracking code," but the template didn't work. Can I ask for refund or ask for help?

  2. Google Analytics has nothing to do with CSS. If you search the forums for Google Analytics, you will find plenty of threads

    Also from the FAQ:

  3. Dear Judy 12,

    Thanks. Now I know it is impossible. Dun

    Although I could be wrong, it seems to me that you are not really clear on what purchasing the css customization upgrade allows you to do and what it does not provide for. It enables you to to alter the appearance of your theme and but not the underlying php code of the blog's template.

    A Brief Overview
    At wordpress.com we are on a shared multiuser blogging platform and we are not allowed to use iframes, forms, some media embeds and styles, etc. or javascript for security reasons.

    Two wordpress.com options.
    (1) You can choose a theme from the admin area of your blog -> Dashboard -> Presentation -> Themes and select one as is. Many provide for a customized a header and sidebar widgets allow for posting of unique images, etc. to personalize your blog.

    If you do not wish to use one of the themes made available at wordpress.com through your admin section -> Dashboard -> Presentation -> Themes then you can choose to undertake css customizing a wordpress.com theme or make your own, or you can move to self hosting or a web host and altering a free wordpress.org template.

    (2) CSS customization can be used to improve on any existing theme; you can define your own classes for use in posts; you can select the Sandbox theme and build on one of the Minimalist layouts or, opt for no stylesheet and do it all yourself. Css customization is not recommended for those who have no experience with css. If you feel you are up to the challenge of customizing a theme then these link, link, link will be helpful.

    Although there is a forum and other bloggers may volunteer to help you if needs be, there is no staff support for css customization. There are also css resources that you can access listed in the FAQs blog.

    The 15$ you pay to upgrade a wordpress.com blog enables you to to alter the appearance of your theme and but not the underlying php code. Purchasing the upgrade entitles you to customize css on one blog for one year.

    I hope this is helpful. :)

  5. Thank you very much. I am wrong.

  6. You're not wrong you're just new. You were confused and you're not alone in that. Other bloggers have also been confused about what css customization is for and what it doesn't allow. Happy blogging :)
