Go to Dashboard -> Pages and themes -> Customize.

if your theme allows it you can edit the text type/ font style, etc. there, if it doesn't allow it then you'll have to look in the CSS of the theme or edit it manually for each (content) block.

editting for each block is done by clicking it and then selecting design.

for the page title alone it might be set in the CSS of the theme.

Thank you for your reply, but none of that works.

It prompts me to add my own css, but I don't know what to enter. Do I enter the font name there? I also do not know how to change the color.

When I think I have accomplished various tasks and I click save, nothing changes even though when I recall my settings it reflects my changes.

Maybe because I am using their free product. If I knew then what I know now I would have used another service. It is very difficult to maneuver and frustrating because I have to settle for an inferior appearance since I don't understand how to use this product.

lol, I should have gone to vistaprint.

I think it's something like this:

header
{
color:black;
text-align:center;
font-family:"Arial";
font-size:20px;
}


you might find what you need by looking into your themes default.css and typography.css which are located in the directory of your theme in your FTP or SSH enviroment.

the file header.php gives you which .css is used for it, edit that one with the correct data.

You appear to be very knowledgeable and I'm betting this is the correct answer for my purpose.

I will try to figure out what you are suggesting, I think I have a vague idea of what you are talking about.

Thank you very much for taking the trouble to assist me.
