How can I change text font in an entire post?

  1. How can I change the text font in an entire post?

    I tried placing <span style> and </span> code at the beginning and end of the post, but it only changed the first paragraph. I'd like to be able to change the font in the entire post without having to code each paragraph...

  2. That's not possible.

  3. These are only 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 (Text) 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.

  4. Thank you for the speedy reply -- guess I'll need to code each paragraph ... thanks again

  5. Yes, that's correct you need to code each paragraph.

  6. No you don't need to code each paragraph. You add an opening div at the very beginning of the post and a closing div at the very end. See here for more:
