Simple Pull Quote Plugin Upgraded!

I upgraded my WordPress plugin, Simple Pull Quote, officially today, and it is now available for download from the WordPress Plugin Repository.

The biggest new feature is that you need only type &#91pullquote&#93Your pullquote here&#91/pullquote&#93 to use pullquotes.  What’s more, there is now a button in both the Visual and HTML editors to insert the above-mentioned code for you.  The result is this:

[pullquote]Your pullquote here[/pullquote]

Many thanks to Darrell Schulte for his help in this endeavor!

    Cool, I dig the editor buttons, I need to figure out how to do that with a theme!

    @Josh – Yeah. Those editor buttons were the most interesting part of this upgrade from a coding perspective. It is one of those things where I got done with it, and I thought, “I don’t know how or why this works, but it does.” 😉

    Where would I go to find out how to configure the look of the pullquote? I’m not finding this stuff and I’m sure it’s some user-problem (ie – I’m blind).

    This is great stuff, though. I love how very basic it is to use.

    Like the plugin, but it appears that it has a bug in that WordPress doesn’t recognize a line space in the following paragraph with a subtitle.

      Peter,
      Will you either send me a screen grab and/or an example of the offending code?

      Thanks!

    Love it. Only one wish: that I could choose to place some quotes on the left. Possible?



    • Toby on June 15, 2010 at 8:08 am

      Clay,
      You can switch the CSS to “float: left”. This will place all quotes on the left. At present there is no way to decide left/right on a quote-by-quote basis.
