    Hello! I went through post history and found the following –

    WP Admin > Appearance > Graphene Options > Display > Text Style Options

    If this is correct where do I find WP Admin please? And if not correct how do I change fonts please?

    Thank you,

    Suzannah

    Moved to Support. Please be sure to post in the correct section.

    “Text Style Options” is where you would change fonts. The Header text only applies to the site name and site description, which are found in the header. If you want to change the font of your text, use the “Content text” area.

    FYI: Just because you have a font installed on your computer doesn’t mean that everybody does. If you select a weird/unusual/rare font that is installed on your computer but not mine, I won’t see that font when I view your site.

    So either stick with web safe fonts:

    or use Google fonts. Josh has a plugin for that, I believe:

    Thank you for your good advice! Sorry about posting in the wrong area … will be more careful.

    I am now able to change the font type face, but my friend wants the text much larger and even when I change size to 14 or 18pt it does not seem to affect it? What am I doing wrong please and thank you. Here is the site http://www.suzannahmills.com/

    Posting in the right section ensures that people will find your thread and respond to it.

    You might want to inform your friend that unusually large text is a turn-off to potential readers. (Yes, if you style your site in a weird way, I go away. There are reasons for this.) If readers really need to see larger text because they are vision impaired, they can always adjust that via their browser settings: generally CTRL+ to embiggen text and CTRL- to make it smaller.
