What should I do when it will not save changes to my theme?

  1. I have been working with the theme "Origin," and when I go to customize it, I am able to change the titles, size, etc.- but when I click "save changes", it says "saving changes" on the side, and stays that way perpetually.

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

  2. Hi there,
    Do understand that no changes you try out aside from those such as Custom Background and Custom Header, etc. which are stated on the theme description pages in the features column (right hand side) for each theme like http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/origin/
    will be visible to visitors unless you purchase an annually renewable custom design upgrade.
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/editing-css/

    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 β†’ Themes β†’ Customize β†’ Colors and click the "exit the preview" link in yellow at the top of the panel on the right.
