    In inove I'm trying to make the post title bigger, and I know where to go in the CSS and I know what to change, however, after I save it, and reload page, the new size shows for 2 seconds and then it literally reverses back to the previous size.

    what can I do????

    -deactivating ALL plugins temporarily to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate them individually (one-by-one) to find the problematic plugin(s). If you can't get into your admin dashboard, try deactivating via FTP or SFTP or whatever file management application your host provides. If applicible, also remember to deactivate any plugins in the mu-plugins folder. The easiest way is to rename that folder to mu-plugins-old.
    - To rule out any theme-specific issue, try switching to the unedited default theme for a moment using the WP dashboard. If you don't have access to your admin area, you can switch to the default theme by renaming your current theme's folder in wp-content/themes and adding "-old" to the end of the folder name using via FTP or SFTP or whatever file management application your host provides. Alternately, you can remove other themes except the default theme. That will force your site to use it.
    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems (because the hooks remain unless plugins completely removed or some plugins stick around in cached files. So by renaming the folder, you break them and force them inactive).

    Dear Tara,
    what a wealth of information! I am so incredibly grateful to you for this

    I ought to mention that I'm running this theme off w.com not .org.

    however it may not make a big difference. I will attempt all this and report back.

    many thanks

    It makes a HUGE difference - in fact, you can't do many of the steps above - LOL!

    You need to be on the WP.COM forums for help:


    (BTW, you can't make CSS changes without the paid upgrade there.)
