Change Fonts and Font Size in Posts (5 posts)

    Hi there!

    Hope all is well. Can someone please help me here? It seems ridiculously complicated to simply change the font and font size in a wordpress post. Editing the style sheet doesn't seem to be working, and most of the plugins (I've tried 2) are quite disappointing seeing as they don't work.

    Any ideas?

    thanks,
    John

    Use the visual editor?

    Editing the stylesheet will work. Could you post a link to your site?

    Thank you very much guys,

    The codex wordpress link could be made so much simpler. I had already played around with that for a few hours.

    I found a way to adjust the font, but not the size. I'll check that link again.

    I used wp google fonts, then applied the font to the "paragraphs" tab in the google fonts settings. You don't write posts in the chosen font but they appear on the website in the chosen font.

    Learn to use FireBug in FireFox or developer tools with IE. You can identify the style sheet and css that effects any particular object. Then, using a child theme, make changes to the css in the child theme so they won't be over written come upgrade time.
