    Everything I've read has me writing code in Edit CSS. I don't understand this. I can't write code. I set up wordpress b/c people said it's so easy. All I want to do is change Font, size, color of Tagline and site title when I change my header pic and I have to write code? There has got to be an easier way. All other places I can adjust fonts and style easily. how is it the most important title is unadjustable? PLEASE HELP ME. I'M ALMOST IN TEARS I'M SO FRUSTRATED. Thanks in advance!

    For help with CSS, you need to post a link to your site.

    And yes, you will need to learn how CSS works in order to customize some parts of your site. Start by downloading Firebug addon for Firefox browser - it makes CSS work MUCH easier :).

    Easy is a relative term - Firebug is an addon for Firefox browser (see link below)- and it is a very useful tool for CSS (and other) work. You will need to learn how to use it and also learn some basic CSS - there's no way around that, sorry. It will become easier if you put some time and effort into it, yes :).

    See: http://getfirebug.com
    and CSS reference: http://www.w3schools.com/css/default.asp

    Looks like you added this:

    #logo, #logo a {
        font: bold 12px arial;
        letter-spacing: -0.01em;
    }

    That invalid CSS - try:

    #logo, #logo a {
        font-family: arial;
        font-weight: bold;
        font-size: 12px;
        letter-spacing: -0.01em;
    }

    Try fixing the tagline code accordingly.

    thank you for your help. Right now I'm furious that would be the case and there wouldn't be a friendly option for non-coders of the world. Just me getting to this forum for this question has taken an hour of reading. I'll put the time in, but any pull you have to eliminate users having to write code would be more than beneficial to wordpress.

    I appreciate your help. don't be surprised if I'm back for more help :)

    We're happy to help - or you could consider finding a theme that has more built-in options. Being furious really won't help you or help us help you :). Do be aware that everyone helping out here is a volunteer - giving free help on our own time. Like most things in life, WordPress DOES have a learning curve and nothing is going to change that.

    You could also try a plugin which might help:
