Adding highlights to your text is a great way to call attention to important phrases or keywords. It’s also an easy way to make your website look more attractive and engaging. If you’re using WordPress, the process of highlighting text is simple and straightforward. Here’s how you can do it.

Step 1: Log into Your WordPress Account

The first step is logging into your WordPress account. Once you’ve logged in, navigate to the page or post on which you want to add highlights and click “Edit” in the top toolbar. This will open up the page or post for editing.

Step 2: Select Your Text

Now it’s time to select the text that you want to highlight. To do this, simply click and drag over the words that you want highlighted with your mouse cursor until they are all selected, then release the mouse button.

Step 3: Add Highlights

Once your text is selected, click on the “Text” tab at the top right side of the editing window. This will open up a new window with all of your HTML code visible. Scroll down until you find where your selected text begins, then add at the beginning of that line. Then scroll further down until you find where your selected text ends, and add at the end of that line. This will highlight all of those words with a light grey background color (#ddd). You can change this color by replacing #ddd with any other color code (e.g., #f00 for red).

Click “Update” when done, and now all of those words should be highlighted! To change how dark or light these highlights appear, simply adjust their opacity from 0% (fully transparent) to 100% (fully opaque). Now visitors to your website can easily distinguish between different parts of a sentence or paragraph — perfect for emphasizing key points or phrases!


Highlighting text in WordPress is a great way to draw attention to important information on your website pages and posts. It’s also easy enough for anyone—even those who are not tech-savvy—to do quickly and easily without having any coding knowledge whatsoever! With just a few steps outlined above, you can have beautiful highlights on any part of any page or post within minutes! So don’t hesitate—give it a try today!  You won’t regret it!
