Simple Pull Quote WordPress Plugin provides an easy way for you to insert pull quotes into your posts and pages. It adds an easy-to-use “Pullquote” button to both the HTML and TinyMCE editors.
IMPORTANT: To use in the new WordPress (Gutenberg) editor, use the “Classic” block.
See the plugin in action as well as how to use it:
- Select the text that you want to use as your pull quote.
- Click on the “Pullquote” button in either the Visual or HTML editor.
For more help on usage, visit the Simple Pull Quote Homepage for a visual guide.
How do I update the look of the pull quotes?
To change the look of your pull quotes, open your theme’s “style.css” file and create a CSS class called “simplePullQuotes”. Edit this class according to your tastes. IMPORTANT: Make sure your theme’s “wp_head()” function comes before your theme’s stylesheet or else this won’t work.
How do I use more than one pull quote in a single post or page?
Simply select the text that you want to use as a pull quote and click the “Pullquote” button in either the visual or html editor.
- Either use the built-in WordPress plugin installer to grab the plugin from the WordPress plugin repository, or upload the entire contents of the
simple-pull-quote.zipfolder to the

Q: How do I make the quote appear on the left side?
A: After you create your pull quote, add “class=“left” to it like this: [pullquote class=”left”]TEXT HERE[/pullquote]
Q: What if I am using a visual editor besides TinyMCE?
A: You will need to manually add the shortcode [pullquote]YOUR TEXT HERE[/pullquote]
Q: Is there a maximum number of pull quotes I can have on a single blog post or page?
A: No. You can have as many pull quotes as you would like.
Q: How do I change the colors and background image on the pullquotes?
A: Override the default “simplePullQuote” class in your theme’s CSS file. Here is a “How To” video about this: http://youtu.be/qvg2BFnN0pQ
Q: Where is the “Pullquote” button in the HTML editor?
A: I don’t know. It disappeared with the most recent version of WordPress, and I am working on fixing it.
