Is the Wordpress standard font too small?
I changed it to 20px on a gut feeling, might even go higher to 21 or 22.I think so. There are easier fonts to read too.
Are you referring to the default wordpress theme? Because there isn't a standard wordpress font size, It's dependent on your theme. Don't like the size, increase it with CSS. Also, too small for what? If you have a site geared towards senior citizens you may need to crank those font sizes so they can read it. Really depends on your needs and your audience.Is the Wordpress standard font too small?
Sans serif fonts are a safe choice. That combined with the other things you mentioned will make your pages more likely to be read.I also don't like the standard Arial font, but don't know which to replace it with. Should be a Sans Serif from what I gather about typeface psychology.
I tend to go with around 18px and a 1.7 line-height on sans-serif font. I spent an absurd amount of time reading up about typography for the internet at one point and that's what I boiled it down to.Should be a Sans Serif from what I gather about typeface psychology.
