    I have the Misty Lake template for my blog and wanted to find out if I can change the color of the font on the header. My blog is called “Life in the Foothills,” and my statement line under that is “Life…And what I make of it.” The statement beginning with Life is so hard to read. I have tried different background color but it is very hard to see anything unless I do just white. Would this be something I have to pay for? I had no issue with Misty until I was informed that it would be changing…

    Thanks for your help!

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

    I’m using the same theme. There is no free way to chnage font color in the Tagline. Provided you are prepared to purchase an annually renewable custom design upgrade and do the CSS editing required you can chnage it.

    I did not have an issue with the font color on the old Misty theme. Too bad. I have had a hard time finding something like what I used to have. I used to be able to have a photo in my background, and with this new version, I can no longer do that. Again, too bad… :( Thank you for your response.

    I have custom image backgrounds. I just selected ones that the font displayed well on.

    I previously used my own photographs as the background. Cannot do that now. Very sad…Are you timethief?

    Thank you for all your help over the almost two years I have been blogging.

    Another question: I will have my own website shortly, and wanted to find out how I can use WP as my blog point in my site. Can you please direct me to where I need to look for this info? We are hoping to go live in about a month. Still developing the site.

    Thanks!

    You didn’t have an issue with the font color on MistyLook because the title and the tagline were inside the (white) content area while on Misty Lake they are outside it. If you prefer MistyLook, why did you switch to Misty Lake?

    I received a notice that the template would no longer be available.

    “the template would no longer be available”
    That’s inaccurate. MistyLook has become “retired”. This means no longer available in newly created blogs, but still available in blogs created before the introduction of Misty Lake. You can go to Appearance > Themes and activate MistyLook again.

    Thank you so much! I was not told that I could continue using it. I was led to believe that I

      had

    to change my appearance. It might be helpful if this is stated on a theme becoming retired but still available for use by those who are using the theme at the time of retirement. I love that my page is back to what it used to look like! Thank you very much for clearing this up for me!

    You’re welcome!
    So far they haven’t completely removed any of the “retired” themes. They might eventually do that, but for MistyLook I don’t think it will be any time soon, as it had always been one of the most popular themes (we no longer have stats for it, but a year ago it was used in more than 500.000 wordpress.com blogs).

    My image widgets disappeared. I had a number of image widgets on the MistyLake. Why did they not continue with Misty Look? A bit of a pain when one has over 600 articles to find the one that has the image in it…did I do something wrong?

    Go to Appearance > Widgets and check the “Inactive” section.

    It does not embed correctly…will have to redo all of what I had. Thanks for asking me to check this area. It only had two and there were more than that…

    I checked a cached version of your blog, and there was only one image that’s missing now – this one:

    Now I am having trouble embedding it into the post! :( I will figure it out! I just want to thank you and TimeThief for the time you both spent with me!

    You’re having trouble because you’re using the wrong URL: that’s not the image URL, it’s the URL of an attachment page. The URL you must use is the one I pasted above.
