    The tagline does not show up in the Balloon theme under the Title. It shows up as a page at the top
    If I plug in type in the LINE 2 of the title it's the same size as the title. Can the font size be changed for this second line?

    Do I need to go into the area where the codes are to fix this? If so, I'm so new that I will need help to do that. I see the word title in some of the code and also the Line 2 but have no idea what to change to make it show the way I want it to. I see others who use the theme with the tag line under their title . .
    Thanks for any help you can give this newbie!

    Where did you get that theme from? These forums only support themes from the repository on this site, so you may want to contact the developer for theme-specific questions.

    There is no theme called Balloon or Balloons on http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/ We only support themes from that repository.

    Ah, looks like it's on WordPress.COM? http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2012/07/24/new-theme-balloons/

    Is your site there?

    Looks like a self-hosted site to me. Possibly a recent(ish) guided transfer from wordpress.com.

    When I tried to activate it, I don't have a site showing on WordPress to activate it to . ..
    I think I'm confused now . . .

    That theme may not be available outside of wordpress.com. Did you pay extra to use it?

    No, it was a free theme . . . I want to activate it through WordPress since I see the Balloons Theme with the tagline showing on it and not on mine.
    When i go to activate, it asks to 'choose site' . . nothing is in the drop down window so I can't choose my blog so therefore cannot activate theme . . .

    To have stepped into the blogging world and gotten stuck on a tagline, has been very frustrating just starting out . . . I'm almost afraid to step into the other categories, widgets, etc. for fear of what will happen there . . .
    I'm pretty tech savvy and graphically adept . . . and this has been such a struggle . . .

    it was a free theme

    Themes that are available for free on wordpress.com are not necessarily also free for self-hosted WordPress sites. Even those that are still free are often substantially different from their wordpress.com counterparts.

    Have you tried to contact the theme developer directly about his/her theme?

    I think now I'm struggling with the fact that I have a blog that I follow my domain name with wp-admin and it's not a blog that I can activate their theme on . . .
    I have contacted the developer (german) but have not heard back . .
    This simple struggle to get a tagline to show up when I see it typed into the TAGLINE window on my dashboard but it doesn't show up on my site?

    this is where I downloaded it from . . .
    http://moargh.de/portfolio/downloads/wp-theme-balloons/

    If you look at theme.wordpress site theme and then look at this theme, you see the tagline shown on the wordpress one . . .
    How can I activate the wordpress theme on my site?

    We did ask you this 16 hours ago.

    I'm sorry but as you are using a non-WPORG theme, you need to seek support from the theme's developer - paid or otherwise. We only support themes downloaded from wordpress.org here.

    You cannot use the Balloon theme from wordpress.com on your self-hosted WordPress site.
