Hi Katie,

What style are you using? Browser and operating system would also help!

Highlight the text you typed and then choose style and size from the menu bar at the top. Hope this helps.

My font size changes as soon as I publish the site. I get different fonts all through the one page, although I keep changing the fonts to the same style and it looks fine until it is published.

Hi Scribe - can you post your URL and let us know which page has the problem with the text size. Could you also let us know what browser you're using (eg Internet Explorer 7, Firefox 3).

i have been having a font issue too lately.
for some reason the fonts will not change in my text boxes.

i highlight over, and over, and over again. . . then try to select from the menu of choices and i get nothing!
i also thought hmmm. . . maybe if i refresh the page or something i'll have better luck, but not so much.

any suggestions?
getting really frustrated over here.
grrrrrrrrr!

Hi JJ

I am sorry that you are angry and frustrated. I think the issue you are reporting is a new one, completely unrelated to the ones reported on this thread, but just as annoying.

We currently have a new bug that we are working on, that I believe may be affecting you.

If you add text to your page and select *only* the text (don't select any spaces before or after the text), you will be able to format the text using the text toolbar.

If you add text to your page and select *all* the text (using 'select-all') or sweep the text with your cursor and include a space at the end of the text, you will find that you are unable to format the text using the text toolbar.

If this does not solve your problem, please let me know.

Hi Monique...That method stopped working for me and I went back to adding my text box then click edit html to add text....you can change font attributes once the text is added to your page.

@John Mc: it is a bug, and we need to fix it asap.
@John - the workaround I suggested still works consistently for me, but it is very helpful to have any options available for people affected. We hope we will get this bug fixed soon, but there is some other urgent development work that is delaying it longer than we would like. Thanks to everyone who is living with it in the meantime. I assure you that this problem is very high on our agenda.

Your site looks great. Well done. One suggestion: If you are going to have pages in your main menu, I would suggest naming them more descriptively (instead of just "page one", "page two" etc.) If these pages were not in your menu then it wouldn't matter, but since they are I suggest selecting names that will give people some idea of what they will find when they click on those pages.

Hello Arabish

Unfortunately we don't have a member register and login feature yet, but we hope to add it in future. We know that many people would like to have people register for accounts and have logins for their sites. We will need to do quite a bit of development to make this possible, so please be patient while we work on this.

This might not be quite what you had in mind, but you might want to try using Google Friend Connect. You can find information on how to add it to your site with this tutorial: Google Friend Connect.

Yes, I'm back to having font issues again, mostly underlining problems. I select a color thats not what I get, or unselect underline and the lines wont be removed.

LU, employee...Excellent! :o)

I have that problem too, but I found out that if I add a couple of spaces before I add the first word in the text box than I can edit the font the way I want it.

Hi LU, wondering if you had a chance to take a look at my font/underlining problem? Thanks.

Hey Rizan.. we must be on the same vibe! =) I was just gonna email you for more info but I can ask you here too. What version of IE and FF are you using again? And on what page are you having this issue?

This has now been resolved. The problem was that copying from external sources can bring with it inherent formatting which can cause problems in the site builder. Always be sure to paste into Notepad first before pasting into the site builder. Also the code for underlining was incorrectly set up.
