No matter which template I choose, my blog resembles a blank sandbox when I activate it and view my site. The blog I need help with is tailshigh.wordpress.com. October 11, 2009 at 6:35 pm #408881 thesacredpathStaff Do you by chance have the CSS upgrade? October 12, 2009 at 12:37 am #408926 tailshighMember Yes, I do. I upgraded back before I learned that you can’t apply a store-bought template using this service. Is this the source of my problem? And how do I fix it (and can I maybe even get a refund for the upgrade)? October 12, 2009 at 12:39 am #408929 raincoasterMember You can contact staff about the rebate, but since it’s the weekend it might be awhile before they respond. And yes, it’s probably the source of your problem. Go to the CSS code box, erase everything there, and click Add to Existing Theme. October 12, 2009 at 1:26 am #408951 tailshighMember Thank you both so much for your help! October 12, 2009 at 1:27 am #408952 raincoasterMember D’oh, you’re welcome, even though I was no help. I’ve been doing this for three years. You’d think I’d know the basics by now October 12, 2009 at 1:28 am #408953 raincoasterMember Um, obviously, since I just replied in the wrong thread.
