How To Change Font Size In Genesis WordPress Theme

Recently one of my blog reader asked a question on how to change font size in  genesis wordpress theme.While there are few pssible ways to achieving this,this post will only focus on just two;using the paragraph setting and changing the font size from the style.php file

Changing the font size from syle.php file

Changing your font size is as easy as editing your themes style.php file.To do this,simply search for;

  • textarea {
  •  color: #333;
  • font-family: ‘PT Sans’, sans-serif;
  • font-size: 15px;

  • line-height: 1.5625;
  • margin: 0;
  • padding: 0;
  • text-decoration: none;
  • }

The font size present in the code above is 15PX.Simply change 15px to suit your need.This is the method i prefer most because you wont have to choose font size each time you make a blog post.

Now ,to change the default font size,simply add this code  p{font-size: 15px;} to the end.below the above code .So the final code will now be

  • textarea {
  •  color: #333;
  • font-family: ‘PT Sans’, sans-serif;
  • font-size: 15px;

  • line-height: 1.5625;
  • margin: 0;
  • padding: 0;
  • text-decoration: none;
  • }
  • p{font-size: 15px;}

Just change 15px in the last part of the code to something that will suite you

USING THE POST EDITOR  PARAGRAPH HEADING

It is a good practice to use larger font for your post inorder to grab your blog readers attention.This is especially good for blog post sub headings.When creating your blog post,you can choose between different heading/font sizes.To manually adjust or choose your post font size,open your post editor and choose from the different heading sizes.The paragraph tab is located to the left of your post editor as shown belowpost editor

Lastly ,other option available  to change the font size  is the use of plugins available in the plugin directory

  4. The changes did not work for my site. I am using Google Page Speed services so perhaps that is affecting it.
