Changing the Text in WordPress

WordPress by default uses a certain Text, it all depends on which WordPress Theme you go with. It can be pretty aggravating to change one little simple thing like the font in WordPress. So in this guide I will show you how to change your text in WordPress.

Go to your WordPress Admin Panel and Login. Once you have logged in, click on the Presentation Tab, then click on Theme Editor. From there you will see a list of Theme Files. Click on the Style Sheet File. Once your style sheet pull up in the window you will need to locate where you want the change to be. For example if you want to change the font and color of the text in the Menu, you will need to locate the Menu Style or for all the content then you will look for the content style.

It should look something like this for the Page Content

#content {
font-size: 1.2em
}

You can add a different font style and font color to that style to give your text a different look. For example, if I wanted to make the text Verdana and green, I would put:

#content {
font-size: 1.2em
font-family: Verdana;
font-color: #006600;
}

To make the font bold, add this piece of code:

font-weight: bold;

Then your WordPress Code should look like this:

#content {
font-size: 1.2em
font-family: Verdana;
font-color: #006600;
font-weight: bold;
}

Don’t forget to place the ; at the end of each line. It took me a long time to figure out that CSS would not work without the ;

You may need to make changes to your WordPress Menus separately. In some WordPress Themes the Content Style controls all of the text and then in other Themes you may have to code each section.

But this guide will get you started in changing the main text. Have Fun and Play Around with it.
