The custom editor broke

  1. I'm trying to edit the colors of the theme, and the editor broke. It's not allowing me to change anything, and it looks like the editor of a self-hosted site instead of a wordpress.com site.

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

  2. Hello there,
    Your blog is private so we Volunteers cannot view it and see if you have the custom design upgrade or not. 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.

    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. ok... I got it to work again by disabling and enabling the theme, but now the menu font won't change.

  4. Do you have a custom design upgrade or not?

  5. Sorry - I didn't see your reply until I already wrote that. No, I don't have a custom design upgrade, but the font color wasn't like that when I first activated the theme. I just changed the blog from private so that you could see it. Why is the font so light?

  6. I'm using Firefox 25 and I'm visually challenged. The fonts are not light IMO because I can read them with ease.

    You cannot change the font family size or color on any titles in any free hosted WordPress.com blog without a custom design upgrade. That upgrade applies to a single blog and is for a single year.

    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.

  7. I mean the menu text. Can you see the menu text well? I have four different pages in the menu, and all of the titles are in Russian.

  8. You require a custom design upgrade to change the fonts in the menu bar.

  9. I don't think you understand - they seemed to change themselves. I'm trying to get them to be visible again. They were visible when I first loaded the theme. Why did they change themselves? WP wouldn't make a theme with menu font that wasn't visible.

  10. Oh! I'm so sorry. Now I understand you and have tagged this thread for Staff help.

  11. That's alright! Thanks a lot! :D I'm sorry I wasn't more clear!

  12. This is a problem happening with the Twenty Eleven theme. I'm not sure what's causing it yet, but I wanted to jump in to say we're aware of the issue and working on it. Someone will reply back here as soon as it has been fixed.

    Sorry for the trouble!

  13. I understand. You could just change the "#access a" tag in the CSS to something darker for the moment, along with the "#access .current_page_item > a". Is that possible as a temp fix?

  14. Already fixed! (I was hoping for that.) :)

    Could you take a look and make sure all the colors look correct on your blog now?
