3:43 Method 4: How to change font sitewide using CSS

To start out, you can select a block of text and use the convert button for that block to change it to a heading block. This allows you to use the different sized headings to separate the content into sections.

If you’re not wanting to set the text in a heading then in the default text block you can use the block settings to modify the size. Ensure it is showing the block settings and not the document settings on the right-hand side and the size options are in the Text settings area.

For our third method, we will be using TinyMCE Advanced found using the link below:

Advanced Editor Tools (previously TinyMCE Advanced)

Now you can go under Settings, TinyMCE Advanced to add the font size to the block that the plugin has added. Return to your post, and add a ‘Classic Paragraph’ block and it will have all of the controls you saw when modifying the settings.

For the final method, we will be using CSS which is the more advanced way to modify something’s style on your site. Go under Appearance, Customize and we will add our CSS from the written article in this area. Our written article is linked below and you can also find it using the link below:

  1. I'm having trouble with my Header 1/permalink font size. It looks normal when editing, but when I preview my post it becomes tiny. It ends up looking awful, but I don't see an option to change it. Do you have any suggestions?
