Has the font been changed?

    Over the past 2-3 days, the font of my whole blog seems different. The posts themselves seem smaller.

    The comments are smaller and stretched out horizontally, and the graphs showing my stats now run off the right side of the frame so I can’t see the current numbers.

    I don’t think I’ve changed any settings to cause this. Is it me, or has WordPress changed something? If so, does anyone know of any way I can restore my look so my graphs appear whole again? Thanks.

    When using my system with other applications, everything looks fine and unchanged, so I don’t think it has anything to do with my screen resolution.

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

    I’ve never posted on this forum before. I thought my address showed up automatically. My mistake.


    The main thing I see is that you are pasting stuff in from MS Word, and MS Word does not speak “Web” so it brings in all sorts of code that can and will mess up your blog.

    You will likely have to go back through your posts and redo them following the instructions in this FAQ:




    Thank you. I will do that in future. I knew Word might cause a problem, but didn’t know how to get around it because I really don’t like composing in WordPress.

    What I’m more concerned about is why the graphs of my blog stats are suddenly going off the right side of the frame so I can’t see the current numbers. It’s like the graphs have all been stretched horizontally. It’s happening in all views, and I wouldn’t think this has anything to do with the posts being in Word.



    There are alternatives to Word if you don’t like composing in the wp editor (I don’t mind the html view, in fact I rather like it, but don’t like the visual editor, so I know what you mean).

    One is to use a plain text editor, such as Notepad. Another is to use a dedicated blogging tool such as Blogdesk or Windows Live Writer (which would be familiar and easy for you). Both are free and a quick google search will turn them up.
