This plugin allows you to easily create pull quotes in your posts by adding a button to the post editor. As an added bonus, pull quotes can be easily shared to Twitter by the end user by clicking the Twitter icon.
You’ve got 3 options for pull quotes, full-width, right-aligned, or left-aligned. Easy Pull Quotes will take on the styles and font sizes from your theme. Plus be on the lookout for customizer options coming soon!
This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
<?php do_action('plugin_name_hook'); ?>in your templates
- How do I add a pull quote?
Just select the Easy Pull Quotes button on the post editor. Insert some text. Select your alignment. Press ok.
- But what if I want to be difficult and not do that?
Well you could manually enter the shortcode. It takes 1 attribute ‘align’ which can take 1 of 3 arguments ‘align-left’, ‘align-right’, and, you guessed it, ‘align-center’.
[epq-quote align="align-right"]Bleep bloop blorp[/epq-quote]
- Can I edit the styles of the pull quote?
Sure! You’ll just have to use CSS. Right now the class
.epq-pull-quote-defaultcontains the styling for the pull quote. If you want to edit the Twitter icon that can be done with
.epq-twitter. But be warned the icon is using the proper Twitter brand standard colors.
- Anything else I need to know?
Not really. The plugin is pretty simple.
