What can I do about the heading fonts?

They are displaying uncomfortably large for me in every design I try, and I don't see a way to change the fonts, colors, or sizes without dropping inline CSS on every single page...how can I get these to display in a way that is suitable for my branding? I'd like to move my photography site here, but the current font renderings are a dealbreaker...

Hi Amy,

I would reccommend you just remove them and incorporate the text into the banner.

Page headings are very low down the SEO ladder.

Hello Amy

At this time it is not possible to change the attributes of the page heading such as the font style, size and color as this is set by the style. We understand that this is something people would like to be able to edit and we are working on changes like this for the future.

A workaround would be to choose a style that has a changeable banner and create your own banner to include a page heading that looks the way you would like. There are quite a few banner making programs on the Internet if this is something you would like to do. I have used a program called Banner Maker Pro which is quite easy and has a free trial version if you would like to check it out: Banner Maker Pro.

Please let us know if we can help you further.

UK Duke - I have to disagree with you there. Heading tags define the significance and structure of the page content for search engines. To my knowledge, the only page element with greater importance than an H1 is the title tag. Certainly inbound links, etc., carry more weight than page elements today, but the h-tags are still significant, especially for a new site.

Sanja - I'm not referring to the page banner, I mean the headings in the page content. The h1's, h2's, etc. On the blog page, for example, each block in the sidebar has a heading, the styling of which cannot be modified. Looking at them in my browser (FF3), they rendered very large--Firebug shows the sizing as 2.5em, from a body size of 12px, which is quite a bit bigger than is common today, not to mention the font itself and the color. It would be nice if these could be adjusted a la some of the 3rd party blog platforms I've used.

Any estimate of when this might be available?

Hello Amy,

You can definitely incorporate various H tags into your page content, there is a tool on the Edit Toolbar to do this. Here is a screen shot of where the tool is located as well as how the text will look on the page.


Using this option on the Edit Toolbar will wrap the text you hightlight in that H tag. Does that help you do what you are wanting to do?

Kind Regards,
Emmy

Emmy - Can the styling of those inline headings be controlled? Also, what are the options for the block headings in the blogs? Thanks!

Hi Amy,
You can change the style of the headings using the Style icon on the Edit Toolbar (it is the A). Unfortunately at this time the block headings in the blog cannot be changed.

Does this information answer your question? Please let us know if it doesn't.
