    How do you change the font default?

    It seems the default currently is 3 - wanting 2

    Do you mean the you want an h2 tag instead of an h3 tag?
    Or do you mean that the size of the h1 tag is 3em and you want it to be 2em?
    Either way you need to edit the theme files, either header.php or style.css.

    Look in your stylesheet, the file called style.css. The modern way to set things like fonts is now done with CSS -- once you get started with it, you will never look back!

    Yep = I mean currently defaults to h3 I want to be H2.
    Funnily enough I'm quite ofay with css stylesheets. I just did'nt THINK! -at 12:41am in NZ!

    By the way If I do get back to you it will be to ask "Okay! where is the stylesheet?!! Hmmm."

    You cannot use style.css to change h3 into h2, to do that you need to know where the tag is located. If it is in the header, you need to edit header.php, if it is in the sidebar, then sidebar.php, the body, then index.php etc.
    These can all be done by going to presentation--theme editor.
    You should find what you need there.
    Send us your URL and we can be a bit more accurate.

    Although, if it's your comments, I suggest it's in comments.php -- should be pretty easy to find.

    FYI: Technically, you are talking about typefaces. A font is a collection, or family, or fonts. Blame it on Microsoft which misinformed millions of desktop publishers.

    Ok -I'm definately missing something here..

    there is no 'Admin' option just
    dashboard..manage.. presentation etc.

    I go into presentation and it just lists some themes.

    1. this isn't a support forum for WordPress.COM.
    2. hosted WordPress.COM themes aren't editable. You get what you get...

    Ahaaa. Oh I seeeee!
    So. Let me get this right for me to edit themes and such I would basically have to run wordpress off my pc (or on my host machine)?

    Well. This is what I wanted to do but I thought it might be wise to familiarise my self with WordPress first by using the freehosting option.

    It all makes sense now. Thank you!!!
