Upgrade font wrong color

  1. Me again - I think the font color on my blog is wrong. I paid for an upgrade but it looks gray, not black. Any ideas?

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

  2. Yes - the font appeared okay but now I see it's not. Can someone tell me if it's my imagination, or is that font gray? I also think it's not the one I selected.

  3. I also meant to ask: if I switch themes, and some day switch back, do I have to pay another $30?

  4. As you already know I am visually challenged. The font is a lovely gray that does not hurt my eyes. The readability is very good.

    No switching themes does not require an additional upgrade. CSS is theme specific. If you have custom CSS and later change themes, you need to delete whatever CSS you have in the Editor, otherwise, you’ll get undesired results.

    To ‘reset’ a theme, you need to delete the CSS in the Editor, make sure the “add to existing CSS” radio button is checked, then save. Things should go back to normal.

    When you alter a theme’s stylesheet, you only need to put in the Editor the modification/additions to the CSS, not the entire thing.

  5. Dumb question, is this on the CSS forum? I was hoping I could get staff help. Shouldn't the font be black?

  6. Yes this is the CSS Forum. Yes, those who pay for this upgrade are paying for Staff support for it. However, we rarely see any Staff members other than designsimply providing that support. Also note that it's the weekend.

  7. Oh, I don't mind waiting. I was hoping Jenia or another staff member can view this issue (I told her it was resolved but I was wrong) to see if it's a WordPress glitch, in which case there would be nothing I could do about it.

  8. Glad to hear I don't have to pay a 2nd time, thanks!

    This has been updated. CSS is now saved in a revision when you change themes and you don't have to delete the old CSS manually.

    To update the font color, you either need to make an adjustment on the Appearance → Custom Design → Colors page or the Appearance → Custom Design → CSS editor.

    The default font color for the Twenty Eleven theme is a very dark gray. To change that, add this to your Appearance → Custom Design → CSS editor and click the Preview button.

    body, input, textarea {
    	color: #000;
    }

    You selected http://inthebarberry.wordpress.com/ as your blog when you created your help request, but that blog doesn't have a Custom Design upgrade applied to it and I don't see any record of a purchase transaction on your ameliespp WordPress.com account. Is http://inthebarberry.wordpress.com/ the blog you're working on?
