I forgot to mention - the code above will hide the text version of the blog title and description. We don't recommend commenting it out in the blog settings - using CSS is better from a SEO perspective. Thanks again!
Thank you for letting your readers know about our new design! A lot of work went into it and a lot of great new themes will be built on it! We're going to be posting a full tutorial on adding a banner to this theme on Everything Typepad - there's some extra code that needs to be including to make sure everything scales properly at smaller screen sizes. It looks like this: .container .jumbotron { padding: 0; } .jumbotron { padding: 0; margin-top: 15px; } .jumbotron h1 { margin: 0; } .jumbotron h2 { display: none; } .jumbotron h1 a { background: url(banner.jpg) center top no-repeat; background-size: contain; display: block; left: 0; top: 0; height: 200px; width: 100%; text-indent: -1000em; min-width: 320px; } /* Extra Small */ @media (max-width: 768px) { .jumbotron { height: 90px; } } /* Small */ @media (min-width: 768px) { .jumbotron { height: 140px; } } /* Medium */ @media (min-width: 992px) { .jumbotron { height: 180px; } } /* Large */ @media (min-width: 1200px) { .jumbotron { height: 200px; } } That tells the screen to scale the height down based on the width. Start with the Large - that's the height of the banner image at its starting point. Then it should progressively get smaller, using about the same changes I included in the code. We'll have that and more tips on Everything Typepad soon!

Tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day and whether you're really Irish or not, you might be celebrating all things green and orange. Since I've actually been to Ireland (bragging), I thought I'd share every single thing I know, in case you ever plan to visit. 1. Ireland is beautiful. There are... Continue reading

I think we can all agree that winter sucks and this one has been especially awful. My scalp itches, the skin under and around my nose is flaky and chapped, my hands are parched, my cuticles are ragged, everything is a mess. It's time to take the lotions and creams... Continue reading

A few years ago, I noticed that I was feeling extremely tired pretty much all the time. It was the kind of tired where all I could think about was sleep and after I woke up, I felt worse than before. I felt sick, like I was coming down with... Continue reading

I really wanted to do a subtle winged liner and sparkly gold eyeshadow look but it just wasn't happening. I started over twice! So I just slapped on some black eyeliner and smudged it up. I knew I'd be doing a lot of drinking and gabbing so I wanted to... Continue reading

I'm actually pretty good at keeping resolutions. Let's see how I do in 2014. Just a few things I want to do: 1. Learn how to apply false eyelashes. Yes, this is #1. 2. Blog on this blog so I have a blog. I've really been shying away from blogging... Continue reading

Just in my own personal experience, retailers tend to be more willing to let you use their images, since you're promoting their product. I would still note where the image came from in my post and when in doubt, go ahead and ask them if they have preferences for image use. Retailers also sometimes have a page on their site detailing trademark info and providing logos, etc. for media use.

Stephen & I fell in love with that show and watched the first two seasons very quickly. It's so addicting and the characters are so engaging! Granny is our favorite :)

Hi Cookie - We understand your concerns and we appreciate that you want to protect your content. However, I want to make sure that it's clear that protecting your content is ultimately up to you - we're the hosting provider, you're the content creator. Basically, if you don't want people to have access to your content for re-use, the only way to make 100% sure that doesn't happen is to not put it online. We know that Pinterest isn't perfect. As Melanie mentioned, it's a beta service and we're sure they're working out a lot of kinks. We're not affiliated with them in any way, so we're not privy to the goings-on there. However, we think it's a great way to share photos, ideas and beautiful things in a central way - the same way that people share text on Twitter or images on Flickr. It's just another way to get eyes on great content. I would encourage you to reach out to Pinterest with your concerns. We heard a HUGE amount of feedback that our users wanted a Pin button so we provided that. If you have issues with the Pinterest service itself, they'd be better able to help you there. Thanks!

If you want to link to the books on Amazon or another retailer, I would just create a Page and insert the images and links there. The above tutorial is more useful if you're using the grid to link to posts within your own blog.

I read somewhere that The Satorialist guy said he's tried to take pictures of fashionable fatties but they always think he's fucking with them, or something, so he's stopped trying. I think you'd be better suited for that type of project and with how much you're out at shows and stuff, I bet you'd get a lot of great pictures.

The "list-style: none" bit of CSS is what hides the bullet points. Did you happen to edit that out of the code?
