why did text font change after I added a photo?

    For some odd reason, after I added a photo to my blog, in the preview it shows a different font for the text than usual. It’s ugly. How do I get the old one I’ve always had back?

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



    We Volunteers cannot see your previews. We can only see posts or pages after they are published. Have you ben copying and pasting? Just in case you have been without using either icon 5 or icon 6 in Row 2 of the visual editor, please see here so you know how to do this correctly in the future. http://en.support.wordpress.com/visual-editor/#pasting-text

    Go to Settings > Writing and select “ ___ WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically” and then scroll down and click “Save Changes.”



    Note that recently the font used on the Edit window has changed. It doesn’t affect the regular text in the actual post, just in the Edit window.


    It been a while since I posted a post to this blog (abstractspirit). I did copy/paste some data but I don’t think it changed until I uploaded a photo. I’m going to try now your suggestion. Thank you for the info. Judy


    I looked at the 5 and 6 icons in row 2. I tried copying the entire post as plain text, but that didn’t change the font back to the original one, which matched the title font. This font is out of nowhere . . . doesn’t match the font from a copy/paste from a word doc, nor from the astrology report I quoted.

    It’s really annoying, as it changed the font in all the text in all the posts in this blog. It no longer has the right “feel” to it.

    Do you think if I changed themes to another one, then back to this one it would reset it to the original? I’m not sure if this theme is still in the lineup. I really like it for this blog and would love to continue with the graphics and the original font.

    I hope so . . I intend to be writing more in this particular blog.

    Thanks again.


    to raincoaster: I wish the font style in the edit window WAS the font in my blog.



    As raincoaster has said the Consolas font you see in the HTML editor is not the font that will display in your post after it’s published. The font stack use in the HTML editor is Consolas, Monaco, Monospace. If you computer does not have Consolas, then your browser will use Monaco. If it does not have that, then it will use Monospace. If it does not have that, the browser will use another font. Changing themes will not result in another font appearing in the editor.



    Instead of asking hypothetical questions, publish the post please so we can see what’s wrong and tell you how to fix it.


    I do know that the font in the edit window is not the font in the published post . . . it was just saying that I would prefer that font as opposed to the one now in the published post.

    The post has been published. The blog is



    Hello again,
    Your theme is displaying the fonts that the theme designer defined for fonts in the theme itself. We cannot edit templates or themes. 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.
