    I’ve just come to the end of a long saga struggling to wrap text around images. In the end I realized that the problem was with ‘header 6’ which I was using for the text in my page. So I switched to ‘Paragraph’.

    While the issue is happily resolved I find paragraph a bit too small.

    How would I go about increasing the size? And can I set a default size for all my pages/posts?

    Hi Leighton, you can modify the size of the text within posts and pages by adding some custom CSS. For example, you can try starting with this to increase the font size and line height on paragraphs, lists (unordered and ordered), and blockquotes

    .entry-content p, .entry-content ul, .entry-content ol, .entry-content blockquote {
         font-size: 130%;
         line-height: 1.4;

    You can adjust the numbers as you like.

    I noticed that you’ve changed your post colour to blue – you can try adding this custom CSS to avoid having to manually change the font colour in the post editor.

    .entry-content {
         color: #003366;

    Once you add that, your post and page text will be blue by default.

    Just let me know if you need further help.



    Oh I have only just seen this response – how did I miss it!??! Thanks for your help! I should be fine with it from here.
