WordPress: Change Color of Text in Post & Page Editor
Problem: Client is confused by grey-colored Georgia font when they write a Page or Post in the WordPress admin. Plus, the grey Georgia font doesn’t match what they see on the front-end of their site, which is Arial. Frankly, I don’t blame them.
Solution: Change CSS in editor-style.css:
- Line: 12
- I changed my color to #3F3F3F (to match what they client would see on the front-end)
- While I was at it, I also changed the font on line 11 from Georgia to:
- font-family: “Helvetica Neue”, Arial, Helvetica, “Nimbus Sans L”, sans-serif;
- I also commented out any CSS that changed bold text to black in the Page/Post Editor
Theme: TwentyTen 1.1
I was so excited to find your post because I’ve been trying to change the color of the text as well. Your directions were direct and simple (ie great). But when I try to change the color, I am not allowed to.
I am popped back to the Manage Themes Page on WordPress.
Any insights would be MUCH APPRECIATED!
