I copy and pasted one of my web sites into WordPress and fiddled with a theme I chose for the blog around a year ago. I have a public relations and web design business and also moving into app development. Triple play is what I'm calling it. I am coming over from using Dreamweaver. WordPress is supposed to make building dynamic web sites easier and is in more demand. What drives me crazy about WordPress is every CMS system has a drop down menu to change the font and size of text. Not WordPress. Why does one have to go into the HTML. to change this? Are non-techies doing that? I spent 3 hours on the home page yesterday. I wasn't liking the way it looked.
That rant out of the way , I decided to see if I could find a simpler theme and installed Business Services and Studio. In the Business Services, demo, I liked one page where there was a graphic with text wrapped around it, interesting color effect, rand another that had three images, "What we do" which would be good for my triple play. I went to Theme Options>Custom Styling and there was font, font color, button colors, hover. I filled this in, saved, noted the information in case I want to change and come back. When I went to Customize, none of the changes were there. When I went to the home page. nothing was reflected in Visual or in Preview Changes. Some other preview had some change. I am confused by all the previews and just navigating the customization. When I went to Instructions/support, there were instructions to download the theme and all this FTP, not where the theme file is.
Please help. Ideally if we could be on the phone or someone in the background showing me what to do. These are supposed to be simple themes.
