The Headings Typography section globally controls all of your heading font sizes in your WordPress website theme using a base font size. These are the h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, and h6 elements on the site that are used for headings and to help search engines identify the hierarchy within your site’s content.

  • In the Dashboard, navigate to Appearance → Customize
  • In the Customizer menu, navigate to Fonts → Headings
  • The font size you enter will be used for h5 elements
  • The Font Size input value can range from 6px-42px
  • Based on your setting, the theme will calculate the corresponding h1 – h6 sizes

The Headings Typography menu in the Customize Menu

The default Font Size of 16px results in the following heading sizes:

  • h1 : 36px
  • h2 : 30px
  • h3 : 24px
  • h4 : 18px
  • h5 : 14px (Customizer value)
  • h6 : 12px

The heading sizes are calculated by using percentages, which are relative to the font-size of the h5 heading. The following is a list of the approximate values used to calculate the heading sizes in BoldGrid Crio:

  • h1 : 2.6
  • h2 : 2.15
  • h3 : 1.7
  • h4 : 1.25
  • h5 : 1
  • h6 : 0.85
