In our multisite network each site under WordPress Websites has its own separate database tables. That means that images, files, and videos that you upload for your site are only available to you and will not appear in any other site’s media library.
The visual editor is where you will add and edit your sites content and it appears when editing posts and pages. In the visual editor you will see lots of options to format your text and add symbols, shortcodes, images, and maps, but you will not find an area to increase font size or change the font. That is because the font size and type are standard throughout the theme that you chose. For more questions on that please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pages make up the largest WordPress component that sites use in our multisite network. Think of pages as where you display static content. Pages can support using various plugins, displaying embedded videos, images, PDFs, etc.
