    Does anyone know how to change color in wordpress posts?

    I thought it would be really simple like when you send out an e-mail to someone there is a text color option, but in wordpress when making posts I do not see such a thing.

    Anyone know how?

    I do not want ALL the text to change for each post. I only want to make a few words red, blue, etc. in a few posts.

    Thanks

    I am surprised that wordpress does not have this simple feature that everywhere else has.

    First of all when you are making a new post make sure you are on the "Visual" tab and not the "HTML" tab. The tabs are on the right hand side of the post box and just above it. Scroll your mouse over the buttons at the top of the post box. When you leave your cursor on a button for a few seconds a description of what the button does pops up. If you scroll to the third last button the description should say "Show/Hide kitchen sink".
    When you click that button a second line of buttons should pop up. The fourth button along there looks like this " A " with a little arrow beside it. Click the arrow as that is your "Select Text Color" button.
    Just highlight your text and then select your color.

    Or simply use HMTL for it <p style="color:#ffff00">your text</p>

    The Wordpress color comes with the theme's available colors. I don't think there is any way you can change that.

    I'm not sure anymore, but maybe installing an extended wysiwyg content-editor will help you to colorize the text.

    If you're talking bout the headlines (the ones u can't edit within your blogpost/blogpage) you should check with the firebug the selector on your site and edit the css in the backend.

    If you want to include html then just include

    <font color="colornameorhexcode">Text you want colorized</a>

    If you want to change the size tag too then add size too after the color.

    And you also have it inbuilt into wordpress if you open the advanced code editor.
