Font Size and Paragraph Indenting-more questions

  1. Hi,
    I'm still trying to get control over font indent paragraph word processing issues for my blog StopSmartMetersIrvine.com

    This morning (see the blog) I was able by some kind of miracle which I am unable to repeat to get a larger font. I worked from windows Live writer and the font on the draft said Georgia 16. However, when I try to recreate this WLW doesn't even allow me to insert 16 (it switches back to 14) for the font size.

    2nd issue. I really like to indent paragraph and I am unable to do that. When I try --either in Word Press or WLW--it moves the entire paragraph in. I have tried various things such as returning then shift return.

    Thank you.

    Melissa

  3. If you are expecting to be able to click a button and change fonts throughout your blog then it’s not that easily done.

    These are 3 ways to change fonts on wordpress.com blogs.

    (1) Changing font families, colors and size in text in posts or pages either post by post or page by page by coding into the HTML editor. http://en.support.wordpress.com/editors/font-size-color/

    (2) Changing font colors in text in posts or pages either post by post or page by page using the #4 icon (Select text color – change the text color) in Row 2 the Visual editor. http://en.support.wordpress.com/visual-editor/#row-2

    (3) Changing all font families, colors and sizes throughout the whole blog by purchasing an annually renewable Custom Design upgrade and using Typekit Fonts with Staff support. http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/

    Note: Any font changes to font families, colors and size in the blog title, tagline, post titles, page titles, widget headings, categories and tags cannot be done without CSS editing.

  4. Re:indenting

    To indent enclose the first word in this code (in the HTML editor, of course):
    <span style="margin-left:28px;">WORD HERE</span>
    You can change the number to adjust the amount of indentation. http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/speech-appearing-on-seperate-line-not-able-to-use-tab-button?replies=12#post-744954

  5. I read the first two. I am using Windows Live Writer. I thought this was to enable me to make a larger font. It somehow did for this post, but I can't replicate.

    Just to focus on font size, what am I doing wrong or right in WLW--to make the font larger?
    By the way I don't mind purchasing some kind of upgrade, but that is more for colors.
    Right now, I'm just trying to have increased font size. ..

    I'll look at the HtML reference right now, but I'm sure I already have and it' s probably too hard.
    If I purchase the upgrade will this make the font consistently larger and give me control of this part so I can repeat it?
    Thank you.

  6. Yes, I did look at this again. http://en.support.wordpress.com/editors/font-size-color/

    I don't know what they're talking about. It's techno talk.

    They give a "code." I don't know what I'm supposed to do with it.

    Also is this to be done in WLW or wordpress.
