HELP!! img gallery and changing title font

  1. shoesthatloveyou

    I have 2 questions:
    First, I was trying to make an entry with a few images in it. I wanted to have image1 at the beginning of my entry and then image2-5 (gallery of imgs) at the end of my entry. However, after adding my images to my Media Library, my post wouldn't allow me to have image1 separate from image2-5. In other words, if I have image1 at the top, it will also show in the gallery of my post at the bottom. If I delete the image from the gallery, it deletes the image as a whole and won't show at all.
    Is there any way to fix this? Or am I doing something wrong?

    Second, I have a theme that I am using but would like to override the title font. Does anyone know a CSS code to change the font of an existing theme?

    Thanks!!!

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

  2. Don't use the gallery function. The gallery function is for putting a collection of images into a post together.

    Put your cursor into the text where you want the first image and then insert that image from the media library. Then move onto the second and third images and do them the same way.

    The title font is typically h1, but that varies from theme to theme since each theme designer things and names things differently in the CSS. We would need a link to that blog in order to look and see.

    Well, technically I would like images 2, 3, 4, 5 to be in a gallery together in my post.
    I just don't want image 1 to be a part of that gallery.
    Is there a way to do that? Or should I be uploading them all separately as you said?

    my blog is shoesthatloveyou.wordpress.com
    does that help?

  4. The gallery is all or nothing. In other words, if you upload 10 images from the post page, then all ten of those image will be in that gallery. You cannot pick and choose, and the only images that will be in a gallery are the ones that were uploaded when that particular post was open in the editor.

    The gallery function has some severe limitations.

    The only way to separate 1 from 2, 3, 4 and 5 is to insert them into the post separately.

    The font for your header is defined here:

    #header {
    font-family:"Stone Sans ITC TT","Arial Rounded MT BOLD",Verdana,sans-serif;
    }

    One word of caution: Do not use fonts that are not likely loaded onto other people's computer. If the font is not loaded onto other people's computers then the browser will substitute whatever it wants and it will end up looking totally different for them.

    Well if I instert the images separately, I find that the image takes up the entire space horizontally (even if it is a small image) and I can't have the images aligned horizontally (even when i click my cursor right next to the image). Rather, they come out aligned vertically... causing my post to look extremely long.
    Is that also just another limitation to image posting?

    And thanks for the header code!

  6. Choose thumbnail for the size when you insert them.

    Hello...

    I was wondering if you could help me out too...I still couldn't figure out how to change the title font and colour, as well as the text colour. I've only managed to change the text font..

    The theme that I'm using is Regulus..

    My link is lenesheartsong.wordpress.com

    Thanks!!

  8. Do you know how to use CSS and have the paid CSS upgrade?

    Yes I bought the CSS upgrade.
    I know a bit of CSS, I'm still exploring :)

  10. Are you talking post titles, or the main blog title? Give me a little more detail.

  11. If you are using Firefox, I suggest getting the Firebug addon. It allows you to quickly find where things are controlled in the CSS, and also allows you to try changes "on the fly" and see the results immediately.

    It has made me far better with CSS than I actually am.

    I'm talking about the post titles.
    That is really useful. Thank you so much.

  13. Adding "font-family" to #content h2 a will change just the post titles. The date as well as the titles for the sidebar widgets will remain sans-serif style.

  14. WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?!?!?!?
    I want to post a gallery of 24 pics…i do everything fine and hit preview and only 12 pics show up….HELP!!

  15. @thomaslunt: Please don't post the same thing again and again. Answered here:
