Theme Adelle

  1. Hello,
    Why does my blog show numbers and letters instead of the accual words "tags" and "comments" at the end of my blogposts?? Please help :) Thanks a lot. Denice

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

  2. It looks like you copy and pasted the entire original theme stylesheet into your Appearance > Customize > CSS editor and you copied some parts of the CSS incorrectly.

    For example, your custom CSS has this:

    .comments-link:before {
    	content: 'f300';
    	font-size: 19px;
    	margin-right: .2em;
    }

    But in the original theme stylesheet, it's this:

    .comments-link:before {
    	content: '\f300';
    	font-size: 19px;
    	margin-right: 0.2em;
    }

    The extra backslash "\" character before the "f300" part needs to be there.

    I would recommend removing all of the CSS you've added so far, and then just add back the rules that you've modified. Otherwise, you may continue to run into issues like this where copying and pasting doesn't work (or isn't expected to work as in the case of any url() values) and it could take you some time to go through and check everything.

    Instead of copying and pasting the entire original stylesheet into the editor, you should use browser tools to view the existing CSS. This page explains how to do that:
