How to change font size in WordPress

 

The ability to change your font size depends on the theme you are using.

 

PLUGINS:

        There are editor plugins you can use:

In Wealthy Affiliate,

Click on SiteRubix ” Build your website here” in the main menu, then click on Site Manager and login, when you are on your Dashboard go down to and click on PLUGINS

Click on  ADD NEW, then type  editor  in the search bar.

 

There are over 3,000 editor plugins.  That is pretty overwhelming if you are just starting out, don’t know anything about coding, know what half of the details they give you even mean.  For beginners, I recommend one that is simple and easy to use (see below for a list of them that I gathered from the Wealthy Affiliate community).

 

HOW TO CHANGE A FONT:

Here is an example using Ultimate TinyMCE

Click on Font Family to change the font

Font Size to choose the size

Paragraph to choose Heading size  (1-6) 

With a simple, easy to use editor like TinyMCE you have the options to control the look of your site.  You can add images, change the alignment, change the font, increase or decrease the size, make headings, use indents, change the color of the text, bold, italic, underline, you can also insert a page break…  

That is pretty much all you need in an editor to start, and you can always use another plugin later.  Focusing on the lessons and building your site is more important in the beginning, than making the site look pretty. Using a basic editor for now will let you do that. 

*  Note:  I have been hearing TinyMCE will not be supported in the updated versions of WordPress.  So I asked the community at  Wealthy Affiliate what they were using, here are some suggestions:

  • WP Edit by Josh Lobe 
  • WP Editor
  • Fonts
  • Kompozwe
  • Kompozer
  • WP Canvas – Shortcodes
  • Thrive Content Editor

 

 SOME THEMES DON’T LET YOU CHANGE FONTS EASILY:

 If you are inexperienced with code, have a theme you love that doesn’t allow you to change the size of the font check out these tutorials.

 

BLANK PAGE OR POST IN THE  ” VISUAL TAB”:

   Can’t see your page or post under the “VISUAL” tab? Check out this tutorial:
