    I know you all do a very good job (I think so anyway!) and need to make money of your product somehow, but I think we need at LEAST basic control over icons in our themes

    1 – at least six types
    2- at least three colours

    Can’t be too difficult! Sometimes the content that the designer uses does not factor in simple READABILITY or VIEWING problems that come up due to the variety of users and content.

    Just three of each would be fine – you can use the font manager to entice buyers to premium – it’s another opportunity avenue!

    The blog I need help with is



    Sorry, the above post, I’m talking about FONT not ICONS!!



    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 blogs and one is by purchasing an annually renewable custom design upgrade.

    (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.

    (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.

    (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.

    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.


    Thank you for the suggestion. Most good designers feel they can make the best design decisions such as fonts in their themes, but there’s always a chance a specific theme needs a helping hand. If you find serious readability or viewing problems with any of the themes, please post specific examples in the support forum. Screenshots for issues like that are always much appreciated.



    Thanks for listening, and for that. I love WordPress, and am grateful for your ‘tone’. Others can often be ‘condescending’ without understanding that effect on others – or may upon understanding that effect!

    Anyhow, thanks…I found that bold texting my post works for the problems I’m having (and not just me – saw another topic on the same Theme with the same problem) – something I didn’t know I could do (where have I been?!)

    Thanks again.
