I just need my body text to be white

    Does it really have to be this complicated that I have to code it myself? Can’t you just have a button where you select body text color?

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



    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.



    Oh no! I apologize for not noticing this thread was already in the CSS Forum. I humbly apologize. Please ignore my comment above and be patient while waiting for assistance.


    No it doesn’t, they can incorporate it all as buttons and such in the dashboard. The problem is though you end up with 10 pages of 100 buttons or selections on each page to cover it all and then that becomes seriously confusing. I’ve demoed some themes like that for clients and they are virtually worthless.

    Also, doing it with CSS rather than just a button or selection in the dashboard gives you far greater control. There are times when a single rule in the CSS covers multiple things and you might not want to modify all those things, so you create your own selector, based in XHTML, that specifically targets the element you want to change.


    We’re working on some cool projects. Stay tuned! :)
