    Please note that you will need to import your blog using the correct importer tool.

    If you are using Yahoo!, please be sure to select the Yahoo! 360 importer rather than our other import tools.

    Thank you very much! I have succeed in importing my blog by using
    movable type. Yahoo 360 was not working for my blog.

    Could I ask you if you happen to know how to change the post format?

    For instance, I don’t want to show the full content of my post on the front page. I just want it to be shown some paragraphs, and viewers
    have to click to read more. Which function should I use on the post
    format? I have used the “quote”, but no working.

    Thank you for your kind reply in advance.

    I don’t want to show the full content of my post on the front page. I just want it to be shown some paragraphs, and viewers
    have to click to read more.

    There is no universal setting. You either choose to use a theme that does this automatically https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/theme-with-automatic-excerpts?replies=13#post-1396410 or you do it post by post.
    See the guide for inserting “the more tag” into Posts, not Pages here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/splitting-content/more-tag/#using-the-more-tag

    I’m glad to hear you were able to import your blog! After I wrote my response I learned that Yahoo! Hong Kong blogs work differently from Yahoo 360, so my apologies in giving you inaccurate instructions.

    To change your fonts globally, you will need the Custom Design upgrade to either use custom fonts (which includes sizes) or to modify your CSS.

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/

    You can modify how fonts display on individual posts/pages by following the instructions here:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/styling-individual-posts-and-pages/

    For pointers on how to change your CSS or other styling assistance, you can post in the CSS Customization forums, https://en.forums.wordpress.com/forum/css-customization

    Thank you very much for your assistance, Jackiedana.
    So it means the only way to change the size of the text is
    to upgrade my theme.

    Is there any other function in addtion to the above if I upgrade ?

    Thanks again for your kind reply in advance.
