Can't change header on New Member's site

I can't seem to change header on New Member Test site. It doesn't allow them to put their Site name in. Please help.

    PC someone told me about Blog Template I downloaded it and have been working on it for a few hours. It's not making sense. My hubby is a programmer too, and it doesn't make sense to him either.

    - I want something super easy for my prosite members as they will mostly be stay at home moms and people who aren't totally comfortable with building their own website.

    Maybe I don't have to worry about the "LOOK" of the issue above if I already have a template set up for them.

    Can you please walk me through step-by-step how to do the blog template and will this work for my prostie, marketpress, chained payments?

    It's going to be like an Etsy type site.

    1. Can all the sites basically have the same look ( I don't care if it's a cookie cutter site, I want it super easy customer friendly.)

    2. Allow them to change the header or if I have a header they can change the name/color

    3. Allow them to add a blog page if they want (Not totally necessary)

    4. Allow them to add their products

    5. This would already allow me to have the categories set up for them and they just have to choose.As the other way I think it is way to confusing for them, as it was for me to add my categories.

    6. I would also like their site to have a "Home" button that will go back to my main site.

    7. I understand with chained payments they have to have the cart in their own site and there can't be a main cart on the main page.

    Thanks in advance

    Heya MillitaryMama,

    The text change you are trying to achieve would be done from in theme options from Appearance >> Theme options

    Themes with Theme options have more customization if compared to simple themes and hence the Live preview does not suffice.

    I did that and it worked well, screenshot attached.

    Regarding the Blog Template issue, I would request and really appreciate, to get best support, if you start a new thread for it. That way we would be able to track both issues separately and be able to assist in a better way !

    Please advise.

    Sorry- I haven't had the chance to look at things. I just got back from Pennsylvania. We were gone for a bit, as my father-in-law is very sick. We weren't sure if he was going to make it or not. He will be admitted to a Hospice care unit.

    Will try to look at things tomorrow and get the site up and running. Much to do today.

    Thank you for staying on top of things.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
