As photographer Linda Niehoff says, "There's not much difference between a story and a picture. Both are a play of light and shadow, both can be redemptive or tragic, and both can take you somewhere else for a while." Her images are gorgeous, and can be bought in 5x7, 8x10, or in a custom print package. Buy "Waving Weeds" for the nature lover on your Christmas list.

How quickly will my question be answered?
Typepad Pro members receive support via the help ticket system, and all questions are answered 7 days a week, including holidays. Response times do vary depending on the number of incidents in the queue and the time of day the ticket was submitted. We strive to answer all tickets within 24 hours. In most cases, you will receive a response to your ticket in 8-12 hours if not much sooner. All tickets will be answered!
Even if you don't have a Pro account, you can contact the support team with any questions in the forum or using the contact form. You can use the contact form if you are unable to access your Typepad account.
The forum is a great way to reach out to other members of the Typepad community to get answers to your questions. You can also help out your fellow bloggers and share your tips in the forum!
If you have an urgent issue, we will try to answer your questions as quickly as possible. Keep in mind not all questions are considered urgent. We prioritize inquiries based on the impact of the problem. We consider an issue urgent when you report your site being unavailable, you are unable to access Typepad, or you are not able to use the Typepad application. Help us help you by using the subject line of your ticket or email to briefly explain your issue. Then, we can prioritize your request based on the subject and respond quicker. A helpful ticket subject is "Mapped domain and lost blog design" or "There is no toolbar when writing post." A less useful ticket subject is nondescript, like "HELP! Not working!"

Priority support will move any help tickets you submit to the front of queue, and you'll receive a response in 4-6 hours if not sooner during normal business hours.

Welcome to the Typepad Master Class! If you've ever wanted to delve into more advanced trickery with your blog's design, the Master Class is for you. Topics covered in this series are for the adventurous or advanced blogger, so an intermediate to advanced level of knowledge of HTML and CSS will come in handy. Additionally, these guides will often require Custom CSS or Advanced Templates, so a Pro Unlimited account is necessary to access those areas and achieve the look and effects we cover. Interested in upgrading? Just head over to the Account link in your Dashboard and click on Billing Info to get started.
An often overlooked tool when composing posts is the Headers formatting for your text. The Typepad compose editor offers six header options, the default styles being a difference in size and, depending on theme, weight. This Master Class post will cover how to further style the headers so that you can begin to use them (and use them for Good...or Evil, I guess).
This is relatively simple to get started, since we've already provided half the information in our Knowledge Base or previous Everything Typepad articles.
It you're shopping for vintage or handmade jewelry (or both!), start at Rhubarb, where you'll find carefully selected vintage, and artfully crafted handmade designs (that can even be customized) perfect for gifting.
