View Full Version : Changing Fonts (and related settings ) In Wordpress

10-25-2011, 07:24 PM
I am using wordpress for my blog/site. I am using Freshnews theme from woothemes as the theme for the blog.

Here is the link:

The font is not that good and it is way too small and the spacing is bad (too congested).

How do I change the fonts, size, spacing (line and paragraph) throughout the blog.

I know I would have to change it somewhere in the stylesheet. But where exactly and how?

And what are the ways to get this done?

Should I install a font somewhere?

Should I use webfonts (like google webfonts)?
What is the advantage in using this?

or what are the other ways?

You would change the stylesheet, which would be located at:


Or whatever the theme folder is called.

If you want all the elements to have the same font family, then you add the font family to the body tag. If you want to specify specific fonts for each element, you will need to do it by element.

the only advantage to using webfonts is so you can use the font you want, without being stuck with web safe fonts.
