Note:
• To change font (as well as text size or color) in a post, a page or a text widget, you need to use the appropriate HTML; see my post Formatting text pt. 5.
• To change the default font of any element, you need either the paid CSS upgrade or Typekit (and experience in CSS editing). If you use the CSS upgrade, you must limit yourself to “browser-safe” fonts – see here; you can also change size and color. If you use Typekit, you can select any of the available fonts; size and color cannot be changed.

  1. Wow! Once again, a great idea ! Hello, dear friend! Thanks for all the help you bring to that little mouse I am! :p mmwah!

    hum.. now I’ll go and see if all those fonts can be added onto a simple blog, just using the “trick” you gave before (TEXTE & if I can’t, it’s not a drama, blogging for the fun, only.. You know, playground fun… :)

  3. Hi, and thanks! I don’t know if it’s a great idea, but it might prove useful to someone…

    Code parti dans le cosmos parce que… voyez ici:

    (You must use the sourcecode shortcode, not the code tag.)

  4. Wow! Thank you for the links, Panos :)) Have a nice day!

  5. Again, the mind boggles at the amount of time and research you put into these posts and maintaining them. Thanks so much! :)

  6. Thank you Jennifer!

    (But if you think I studied the CSS of each theme to come up with this list, then no: I used a faster trick.)

    Posted by Panos | October 4, 2010, 21:04
  7. Did you use a Firefox add-on to have a sneak peek at the font? Just curious!

    Posted by Netty Gritty | November 14, 2010, 15:38
  8. Just a thought, like you say you can’t change the structure of the theme without, buying the upgrade.

    You can use Windows Live Writer, to change the size of the fonts within a post, if you use that…. I find the fonts used in Structure a little on the small side, but of course it only changes the fonts within the post you upload.

  9. @NG: No, I just copy-pasted from Safari to TextEdit (Mac) with the font palette open to show me what the font is.

    @Ray: Right (if you are a PC user).

  10. Hi Panos

    I am trying to find out what the fonts are on Twenty Eleven, I see here that you have Helvetica Nue listed, but it seems they use a different one on the pull quotes, would you have any idea what that font is?

    http://twentyelevendemo.wordpress.com/2011/05/27/pull-quotes-in-twenty-eleven/

    The one where it says: “Testing a blockquote on the right”

    thanks so much!

  11. My post lists ‘normal’ text only. Blockquotes are always differentiated one way or another: might be the same font, just indented or italics or different color, but in some themes they are in a different font as well. Blockquotes in 2011 are Georgia italic, and “pull” blockquotes are Georgia bold italic.

    Why are you interested in this? Note that Georgia is a peculiar font family: its lowercase italics don’t look like an oblique version of the same font, they look like a different font. Compare:

    abcdef ghijkl mnopqrs tuvwxyz Georgia regular
    abcdef ghijkl mnopqrs tuvwxyz Georgia italics

  12. Thanks so much! I honestly don’t know where you find the time or patience to put these lists together, but thankfully you do, and I am really grateful!

    I am interested because I am putting together a series of images with text on them, and i wanted to use a font that was already in use on the theme so it wouldnt get too cluttered with a mix of fonts on the site.

    Posted by Kerry | October 4, 2011, 13:41
  13. You’re welcome!

    Where do I find the time? Well, this has become a hobby for me. And it doesn’t take much time once you get used to the tricks involved.

  14. Useful post, thank you.
