Maybe you’re like me and prefer to use WordPress’ text (HTML) editor rather than the visual editor. But the problem is that the HTML editor text is small and — let’s face it — kind of ugly.
There are all sorts of solutions out there; some involve editing (or adding) a stylesheet just for the text editor.
But there’s a simpler way. Just add a few lines of text to your theme’s functions.php file.
The example above shows only the code to change the font family, but you can add the font size CSS as well.
Another way to add the code
It’s not ideal to edit the functions.php file on a live site. (Type one incorrect character and your site will go down until you find the error and correct it via FTP.) A better way is to create a functionality plugin and to add the code to that. You can edit the plugin anytime and will never get the white screen of death that way.
Need help with any of this? Feel free to get in touch with me; I’d be glad to hear from you.
