How to Change Font Size and Family in WordPress 4.0

wp edit wordpress plugin to change font size and family

The WP Edit plugin actually works starting with WordPress 3.9.    If you are using  WordPress versions 3.5.1 through 3.8.3 then you will want to use this WordPress plugin Ultimate TinyMCE which was created by the same great plugin developer Josh Lobe.  You can also watch my Video Tutorial on the Ultimate TinyMCE plugin right here on this site.

WP Edit by Josh Lobe is the master plugin that allows you to easily change font size and family on WordPress post and pages. Just watch the WordPress Video Tutorial below to see how easy it is!

Description of WP Edit WordPress Plugin

WP Edit is built around three years of custom WordPress development. WP Edit adds extensive, additional editing functionality to the default WordPress editor. Begin creating content like the pros; without knowing a single bit of HTML or CSS.

Most Powerful Features of WP Edit

WP Edit will provide new buttons, additional options, and extended formatting abilities to the exisiting content editor.

  • Easily insert images, media, YouTube videos, and clip art.
  • Create tables via a graphical interface.
  • Adjust table cell border and background colors.
  • No need to learn HTML and CSS (although the basics can certainly help); use buttons with visual interfaces instead!
  • Easily access all shortcodes available to your WordPress environment; and insert them into the content editor.
  • Use shortcodes to insert columns.. similar to “magazine” style layouts, in your content areas.

Why should you use the WP Edit plugin?

Because WP Edit is the culmination of three years development in the WordPress content editor. You can begin creating content (with advanced layouts); easily insert all types of external media (YouTube, Vimeo, etc.); adjust fonts, styles, colors, and sizes; and much more!

What is included in the free version of WP Edit?

  • Drag and drop functionality for custom creation of the top row of editor buttons.
  • Adds additional editor buttons such as subscript, superscript, insert media, emoticons, search and replace, html editor, preview.. and many more.
  • Add your custom editor to excerpt areas and profile descriptions.
  • Allow shortcodes in excerpt and widget areas.
  • Highlight admin posts/pages based on status (green = published, yellow = draft, etc.)
  • Easily import/export plugin options.

Why should you upgrade to WP Edit Pro?

  • Drag and drop functionality for custom creation of all rows of editor buttons.
  • Powerful network installation functionality; WP Network Ready.
  • User roles for custom button arrangements; allow different user roles access to different editor buttons.
  • Extreme Custom Widget Builder – create custom widgets just like posts or pages.. and insert them into any widget area or the content editor.

    Nice Share Jim!

    Never knew such plugin existed! WordPress do have a built-in editor that you can use to make changes to your theme and plugin, but to be honest, it’s pretty bad.

    I think these instructions are outdated; wish the posts had dates.

    But I’m grateful for the explanation about the relationship between this, Tiny MCE, and Ultimate Tiny MCE. Very helpful!
