    I have the same question as does freesolicitors that was asked on June 12, 2010 at 7:35 am. My font size in my blog article text is too small and I don’t know how to change it to a larger size. Please help. This text was pasted from Word.

    The blog I need help with is rmedary.wordpress.com.

    The font size is determined by the theme you’ve chosen. The only way to change that would be to purchase the Custom CSS upgrade and override the styles set by the theme. If that’s not an option you may want to check out some of the other themes to see if there’s one that’s more to your liking.

    I have randomly checked out other themes and they all have fonts that are too small when I preview them. When I first published, the font size was good, but I noticed yesterday they changed. When I went into edit and then into HTML, I spent considerable time changing “font size: x-small” to “font size: 12px”. When I clicked on preview changes, it seemed to be working. However, when I returned to the edit screen (by hitting the back arrow in upper left hand corner of the screen), the code reverted back to x-small. It’s no wonder people don’t read my blog. I can’t read it myself!

    The default font size is larger than that. If you remove the span tags that change the font size in your posts it should re-set to 16pixels. As this new size is hard-coded into each post the themes that you preview will also all show with 12px type.

    I wouldn’t recommend explicitly changing the regular-post font size as if it is too small or large then readers can use their browser’s zoom options to change it.
