Many people I set up WordPress websites for as a very simple question:
The simple answer is headers! Typically in web design, when you want large text, it is to represent the header or title of the body. This helps people with screen readers and search engines decide what the content to follow is to be about.
If you are in a hurry, here is easy the answer:
This hidden-wonder opens up a bunch more options for the editor. You know it is the right one because when you hover over it, a little message or tooltip says “Toolbar Toggle”.
You will see a small dropdown that says “Paragraph”. In this dropdown you will see a bunch of H1, H2, H3, and so on. H1 is the largest header font and tells people that this is the main focus of the page. H2 is typically a bit smaller and is meant to act as the sub-header for pages. H3 is smaller than H2 and so on with H6 being the smallest.
You may notice the font changes when you turn your text into a header. Most WordPress sites are set to display a different font for the header. If this is an issue, then you will have to enlarge the font by hand-coding it, or install a plugin for WordPress call TinyMCE Advanced that gives you more options. Go to your plugins and search for this plugin and install it. You can then make the text larger without creating a “Header”
This is a challenge for many and the only solution without having to dive into the text editor to hand code this, is to separate the text from the body text by hitting enter above and below the text.
This is a coding issue and must be adjusted in your theme’s css file. The TinyMCE Advance plugin may have an option to adjust the “Line Height to resolve this.
I hope this helps and don’t hesitate to contact me via email with any questions at jason(at)mycompleteweb.net
Have a great day!
