How To Add More Fonts Styles & Sizes To Your Wordpress

Last Update: April 20, 2017

Hello People

The other day I was attempting to change the style and size of my fonts in an article I had in Edit Mode in my Wordpress. All to no avail I must add.

After some advice from Loes I tried various Plugins and Themes and after a great deal of trial and error I finally managed to find one that worked for me.

Any WA member who would like to have this option of making changes in their own articles/blogs can follow the instructions below.

First of you have to go into your WP and Plugins.

You click on Add New and type in the Search Box - Fonts Family, Fonts Style

When the plugins have been loaded, scroll down the page until you see Fonts

Click on install and then activate.

Go into your pages/posts and click on one to Edit.

Once in Edit Mode you should see that the plugin has added 2 drop down menus to your visual editor with additional sizes and fonts:

You should see two more menu buttons

A button for Styles

A button for Sizes

Although I haven’t tried it yet there is the option to add your own selection of Google or Custom fonts including premium fonts, to your editor:

Add Google fonts

There you go folks and I hope you go on to enhance your articles/blogs instead of using the same old same oh default of wordpress.

If any members do start to use this function to its full extent then perhaps you will share your new found knowledge with the rest of us.

You can always leave a comment below and possibly a ‘Like’ as well. It will be appreciated and I do reply to every one.

Have a great day/evening.

Robert Allan

ps

if you have trouble uploading the Plugin you can download it directly here -

Thank you. I had this on my list to find out how to do it. I find the range of fonts and styles a bit limiting as I am used to the greater variation on Word. Have a good day/night or inbetween.

Hello Helen
I've wanted to do this for a wee while coz I do use a lot of variations on my other sites and they look so much better when you can 'Tart' them up a wee bit.
Loes put me on the right track and I just persevered until I found out the right way to do it.
You can download lots of other ones from google as well.
Don't know if your usual google password will do for this function or not so you will just have to try for yourself.
Have an excellent day.
Robert

Hello and thank you for your comment and yes please do try it.
At the very least your articles will have some character.
There are also other styles you can add from google to make articles really stand out from the crowd.
