Editors » Font Size and Color
You can change fonts using HTML but it’s fiddly and maybe not worth the hassle all the time but keep reading :)
To make the font changes shown above, the following code was added to the Text editor:
<span style=”font-family:comic sans ms;font-size:x-large;”>You can change fonts using HTML</span> <span style=”font-size:x-small;”>but it’s fiddly</span> <span style=”font-family:georgia;color:#2233ff;”> and maybe not worth the hassle all the time</span> <span style=”font-family:arial;color:#ff00ff;font-size:xx-small;”>but keep reading :)</span>
So when you want to write differently you have 3 elements to play with: font-family, font-size, and color.
- font-family – the style of type. Here is one blog with examples: http://typetester.maratz.com
- font-size – experiment with different sizes. See examples above.
- color – use a hex code for the best range. Here is one blog with colors: http://www.visibone.com/colorlab/big.html
- When you write HTML, you must make sure the code is well-formed. For example, every <span> tag must have a </span> tag.
- Make sure you are using regular quotes (” “) and not smart quotes (” “).
- Alternatively, you can change some aspects of the fonts using the visual editor icons including headings, paragraphs, indentation, alignment, and color.
- To change fonts globally, you would need to purchase the Custom Design upgrade. With the Custom Design upgrade, you can either change the fonts with the simple point-and-click Font Editor, or with the CSS Editor. If you are new to CSS, you can get support from our team as well as other wonderfully helpful people in the CSS Customization forum.
- We cannot alter a theme to accommodate your choice of font size. Please bear in mind that if we alter a theme for you then that alters the same theme for everyone else. They probably won’t like that happening.
