WordPress Classic Editor Font

Jump to navigation Jump to search

If you want a font for the WordPress Classic Editor (TinyMCE) that isn't the Georgia Font (strikingly similar to the Microsoft Times New Roman font), then do the following;

  • Create a file in the ./themes/ directory, name it anything.css (suggestion: tinymce_font.css) with the following code;
    body#tinymce.wp-editor {
    font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif !important;
  • Then add the following code to the theme's (parent or child) functions.php file;
function alternate_font()
     add_editor_style( 'tinymce_font.css' );

add_action( 'after_setup_theme', 'alternate_font' );
