    I've been trying to create a post on twenty-ten and discovered there is no simple and direct way to change the font style or size. The image browser also will not import a tiff file, although jpeg's work just fine. The other options for font size and style seem to be composing in Word, and copy/paste. JML

    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: A few themes do provide for changing font color in the Blog Title and/or optional Tagline and/or links. In the majority of themes font changes to font families, colors and size in the blog title, tagline, menu, post titles, page titles, categories and tags, widget headings, comments, and links cannot be done without CSS editing and CSS editing is theme specific.

  4. christinemartindesign, you can make the font smaller for just the top navigation if you use the font-size property with the right selector. Which selector you need to use depends on the theme you are using.

    If you'd like more specific info about what CSS code to add, can you please include the link to the blog you're working on or let us know what theme you are using there?

  5. If you are using the Forever theme, you can adjust the font size for the top navigation area using the following CSS. Also, note that the links in the top navigation menu aren't bold, but they are black next to a lighter gray so it make it look more bold in comparison. You can tone that down a little by changing the font color from black to gray.

    #access a {
    color: gray;
    font-size: 80%;
    }

    Adjust the percentage size as necessary.

  9. I like the gray but I have a drop down on the page called "inspired by" where the subsequent pages are in black font (teachers, words, action).

    can you give me the CSS code to change those too?
    Thanks.

  10. Sure! To change submenu font colors in the top navigation on the Blogum theme, try this:

    #access ul ul a {
    color: gray;
    }
