WordPress Pull Quote Plugin Updated: Now Includes Left Alignment!

[pullquote class=”left”]Some like it on the left.[/pullquote] I pushed a new release of my Simple Pull Quote WordPress plugin a few minutes ago that adds the most-requested feature: left alignment. I know it probably doesn’t sound like a big deal to most of you, but what can I say – some like it left, some like it right. haha!

[pullquote]Some like it on the right.[/pullquote]There’s probably 4,000 users of the plugin that will utilize the feature…soooo…As George Carlin once said, “Even in a fake democracy, the people should get what they want every once in a while.”

Why did it take me so long to release such a basic feature, you ask?  Well, I am someone who thinks software needs to make decisions for people.  I generally don’t like options, especially in something as simple as a pull quote.  Plus, the ability was always there to style the thing for anyone with a rotary understanding of CSS.  I have kept the option totally unobtrusive, because people have to manually add the “class=left” parameter.

For the record, I have plans to release a new version of Simple Pull Quote with all the options, bells, whistles, and dishpans that people have been requesting over the years.  Stay tuned for that!

And Enjoy!

Website DNS, Domain Registration, & Hosting Basics

Avada ThemeFusion loads 80+ javascript files on every page! DON’T RECOMMEND!

By The Mighty Mo! Design Co. | November 18, 2021

I inherited a WordPress site using Avada ThemeFusion, and it is experiencing really bad performance issues. After doing lots of my standard bag-of-tricks optimizations to little effect, I decided to simply count the javascript files. To my surprise horror, I found it was loading over 80 javascript files on every single page! (For comparison: themightymo.com…

Why I switched from WPMUDEV’s Defender Pro to WordFence for WordPress Security

A while back, I started using WPMUDEV’s Defender Pro plugin for security on all my WordPress sites. I made a decision this week to switch to WordFence. The conversation was forced on me, because I had a site using Defender Pro that was hacked. I do not blame Defender Pro for the hack, however, this…
