Change font size, style and color in WordPress posts

I was looking around wordpress.com today because for SOME easy way to make posts with more entertaining fonts and styles.  Also, it needed to be easy enough for a end using client to use.  There was a short discussion, and a corresponding FAQ on the wordpress.com website, but all the options they offered were expensive, difficult for non web programmers, or intermittent (Pasting from word only seemed to work sometimes, and requires you to use M$oft products).

I was thinking, wouldn’t it be nice if you could just use the editor in g-mail.  And as it turns out:

That Works Perfectly.

Right down to the emoticons.  It doesn’t have EVERY font available, but only the ones that tend to be safe for use in all browsers.  In order to use it, type your intitial wordpress post as an e-mail, then when you are finished, copy the whole thing, and paste it into a wordpress entry. Once you are done, you can use the wordpress.com editor to make any changes (like adding images) that you weren’t able to do in the g-mail editor.  WHOOPIE!

I hope this works for your problem as well as it worked for mine.  Happy blogging.

  1. Wow! That is the cleverest and easiest way to deal with fonts in WP that I’ve seen! I was in the middle of testing plugins to do the same thing and going kind of crazy trying to get them to work.

    I’m going to try your method right away.

    Thank you!

  2. Thank you! man, you would think this would be information that was easily available since it’s so simple.. Every plugin i’ve downloaded was for the font titles,headers, and theme. I wanted something for the post and I got it thank you!
