How to Change Font Color in WordPress

By | June 12, 2014

My first how to post. I’m excited. Since my goal is to help everyone out as much as possible. And as of right now I have not discounted the possibility of an online business being a viable passive income stream. My first “How To” will be about blogging (I’m sure there will be a whole section of this site dedicated to this).

Change the Font Color in WordPress

In my first post I wrote: Walter Lippmann spoke of men who plant trees that other men will sit under. Ben Graham was such a man.” Well I didn’t write it; rather I quoted Warren Buffet, but you get the idea. How did I get the font to change colors? Well I could have used the default wordpress platform to change the font color to a few basic choices. I probably could have also installed a plugin. But I’m lazy. I Googled (just remembered “Googled” is not a word thanks to my spell check) how to create a hex color code (#ffffff) such as the one below:

<span style=”color: #339900;”>”Walter Lippmann spoke of men who plant trees that other men will sit under. Ben Graham was such a man.”</span>

Here’s what I found to change the font color:

  1. Create your color code. You can us this website or any other.
  2. Replace #ffffff with your color code and XXX with the text you want to show in this code: <span style=”color: #ffffff;”>XXX</span>
  3. Place the code into the wordpress text editor and voila, you’re done!
