Static page not responding with tags and font changes

  • Hi All,

    Completely new to all of this. I’ve moved my website over to a portfolio style presentation on the front page.

    But I cannot seem to changes fonts. Also tags are not showing up on the static page.

    Been running around for in circles trying to sort it out.

    Sure someone this is a very easy fix for you more experiences users on here.

  • Hello!

    The best place to start is our theme documentation — we outline how to set up your portfolio and projects.

    To adjust your theme’s colors and fonts, you’ll need to upgrade to one of’s paid plans.

  • Hi Scott,

    Thanks for you reply. I have a yearly premium plan with

    After spending 3 days looking over the theme documentation and trial and error I was able to get the website to 90% of my desired look and functionality.

    Can you please outline why I cannot change my static page font headings on my projects? I’ve picked proxima nova for heading and body fonts.

    Sub menu’s, Tags and other body fonts are all Proxima Nova but not the heading’s of my projects.

    Also with the infinity scroll feature. Why it is that I cannot remove the “blog at the bailey theme” watermark.

    As a designer myself I understand the need to represent your work and brand. Supporting great people like you all is why I chose your theme over many other ones.

    But i’ve paid almost $300 to have a simple clean portfolio website. I do not wish to have a watermark on my website.

    Any help with this matter would be greatly appreciated.

  • Hello!

    It turns out that’s a bug — and we have sent an email to the theme team requesting that they add another CSS selector to fix the font issue. We can definitely let you know when that’s resolved.

    As for the second issue, I totally understand and empathize, but it’s part of the Terms of Service of

    11. Attribution. Automattic reserves the right to display attribution links such as ‘Blog at,’ theme author, and font attribution in your blog footer or toolbar. Footer credits and the toolbar may not be altered or removed regardless of upgrades purchased.

    We are able to offer white label themes for self-hosted/ sites — and if you ever decide to go that route, we’d be happy to help you get set up!

    Let us know if you have any other questions and we’ll update you on the title font issue!

  • The font issue is now fixed and your portfolio titles on the homepage are picking up your custom font.

    I noticed that you removed the footer credit. All sites – including VIP clients on – must leave the footer credit intact. You may tweak its look and feel as long as it stays readable.

    Please remove the CSS you added to hide the footer credit.

    This CSS will make it about as light as small as you can go while still keeping it legible:

    .site-footer .site-info {
         color: #ddd;
         font-size: 12px;

    If having no credit is crucial for you, going the self-hosted route would allow you to do that.

  • Hi Melissa and Kathryn,

    Thanks for fixing up those issues I had. Great customer support.

    On the point of the footer credit. I have turned back on the infinity scroll which displays the credit.

    I’m disappointed that I paid a premium price for both a yearly membership and theme and be told I have to show the credit.

    As a designer I am constantly being judged on my presentation.This website is my most important tool when applying for work or attracting future clients. I picked the bailey theme because of the very minimal layout. Having the footer credit really does take away from the professionalism of my website.

    But I do understand that if its in the terms of service I have no choice. I do wish this was presented to me when I was researching whether to go .com or .org for my website.

    I hope this does not seem too critical. This is just my feedback of my experience so far. I’m very happy with the look of my website.

    Thank you again for your help.

  • Thanks for restoring the credit and for the feedback, we appreciate it.

    Your site is looking really lovely – I hope it serves you well.

  • Hi Kathryn,

    Can you please troubleshoot a problem i’m having with my footer.

    I’ve added a text widget in the footer. Can you let me know why my text has been stacked like so?

    And also why I don’t have the option of removing the rss logo from the footer?

    Thank you

  • I’ll let the theme author help you on this. It may be better to start a new thread since these are separate issues.

  • Hi Andrew,

    We’ll need access to your site in order to take a look at your text widget.

    Here’s the CSS to hide the RSS icon:

    li.rss {
      display: none;
  • Hi Melissa,

    The RSS removing code worked! :)

    I’ve just made my website public so you can see the issue I’m having with the footer widget.

    Oddly. On both my iPad and iPhone the text is aligned properly. It’s really only on the desktop that its suffering.

    Also can you please provide code so I can adjust the font sizes for footer text widget.

    Thank you

  • Hi Andrew!

    I cannot recreate the issue you’re seeing. Which footer have you added this text to, Footer 1? Could you please try removing the footer widget and adding it again? Sometimes when you copy text the formatting can remain.

    Also can you please provide code so I can adjust the font sizes for footer text widget.

    You’ll want to post this question to the CSS Customization forum. They’ll be sure to point you in the right direction with style and CSS-related questions.
