Another classic of the interwebs. Why do I like doing tech support? It’s for moments like this.
I WANT TO SPEAK TO A PERSON!!!!!
I HATE YOUR STUPID SIGHT!!!!! I have wasted an entire day trying to set up at stupid blog. Set one up on Blogger in five minutes. Can’t modify the theme, paid for a domain that I can’t access, paid to have domain hosted elsewhere, still can’t access theme modification through your dashboard, have an IQ of 140 and spent 15 years as an it professional. PUT SOME ONE ON THE PHONE.

We are mostly volunteers here in these forums. Staff does look in to answer questions/help with problems we volunteers cannot do anything about. It does no good to shout at us: we only want to help.
New WordPress bloggers can learn quite a bit from this tutorial:http://learn.wordpress.com/
You should also be aware that there are different kinds of wordpress:
You can modify a wordpress.COM theme with a custom design upgrade. Note that you cannot change the function of a theme.
The support documentation is very good and taking a little time to search it will be of value as you learn to use this platform. Here are other support docs about CSS here on wp.COM:
If you have a domain mapping upgrade, then the support documents have instructions for how to set up the mapping with your domain name:
As volunteers we can respond to specific questions so please feel free to post again with details about what you are having difficulties with.
IQ of 140 in base 5?
I HATE YOUR STUPID SIGHT!!!!!
Well, in spite of my high IQ, I know I’ve made my fair share of spelling mistakes.
Being intelligent is no guarantee that one can know everything instantly, and blaming others is not productive in the pursuit of skills.
You’ve been a part of WordPress for four weeks, and you’ve had all of this frustration building up, but this is only the second time you’ve asked for help.
If you really want help, we could probably get you moving in the right direction… otherwise, you sound like a perfect candidate for a Blogger blog.
Tess, that is not a 140 IQ. I have a 140 IQ. If we treat liars with the same respect we treat normal people, there’s no disincentive to lie.
136… but I smoked a lot of weed when I was a kid, so I might have started off at 140.
I have no idea what my IQ is and could care less, and I’ve never stayed at a Holiday Inn Express.
I like cheese.
I like turtles.
Turtles. We have turtles. Nice ones. The Green Sea Turtles (Honu in Hawaiian). They are fun to snorkel with although you aren’t supposed to get too close since they are an endangered species (much like honest, caring politicians). Still, they are magnificent.
Rain, I won’t dispute the OP about his or her IQ number. That statement may or may not be true.
I’ve met some (supposedly) smart folks who have no idea how to do anything practical, whether from lack of patience or effort. It’s a poor craftsman who blames his tools. The OP’s frustration is understandable, so I merely pointed out that he/she could avail herself of the resources here rather than expending energy on blame.
BTW I laughed at base 5…
The turtles are magnificent, not the dishonest, uncaring politicians. I thought I should clarify.
I am thinking about chocolate pecan turtles: If there were any in the pantry they would be very endangered…
Mmmm, chocolate pecan turtles….
Nobody who has actually worked in IT for over a decade expects DNS changes to be instantaneous. Or doesn’t know how to use the simple support forum.
My IQ is 110. I’m a dumbo then. Lol. Why is the OP rattling about IQ anyway. I agree with Tess. I too have met some very intelligent people who are complete numpties when it comes to anything practical.
Erm, what is “Base 5” ?
@karenhelme I’ll contact you by e-mail to help you solve your problems.
