Format Text in WordPress Pages and Posts

Well-formatted text is easier to read on screen and also improves the SEO performance of each page and post in your site. Use WordPress’ formatting tools in the Visual Editor’s toolbar to add:

  • Paragraph styles, including headings
  • Bold, italic and strikethrough text
  • Bullet and numbered lists
  • Block quotes and indentation for paragraphs and lists
  • Text alignment (left, center, and right)
  • Special characters (like: © ∑ — ♣ and many others)

You can also use the formatting tool bar to:

  • Add or remove hyperlinks
  • Insert a “Read more…” tag
  • Spell check and proofread your text
  • Add a horizontal rule
  • Change the text color
  • Paste as plain text
