The plugin enables a Wordpress shortcode that allows you to add a pullquote within your content. The shortcode can be added manually or by selecting text in the text editor and then selecting an option (left, right, or full) from the Pullquote dropdown button.

The default shortcode tag is shown here

[perfectpullquote align="left" class="" cite="" link="" color=""]This is the pullquote text.[/perfectpullquote]

Options

The shortcode includes six options, (align, color, and class) as outlined below:

align="left"

REQUIRED: Determines whether pullquote is left-aligned, right-aligned, or full-width (95% width of container). Accepts "left", "right", or "full"

[perfectpullquote align="left"][/perfectpullquote]

cite="Jane Doe"

Optional: Cite your quotes back to their author/source

[perfectpullquote align ="right" cite="Jane Doe"][/perfectpullquote]

link="http://example.com"

Optional: Turn the cited author's name into a link that opens in a new window. Must be a valid URL beginning with http or https

[perfectpullquote align ="right" cite="Jane Doe" link="http://example.com"][/perfectpullquote]

color="#EEEEEE"

Optional: Change the default border-color attribute by entering a valid HEX color, including the pound ( # ) sign.

[perfectpullquote align="left" color="#16989D"][/perfectpullquote]

class="className"

Optional: Add class(es) to pullquote container.

[perfectpullquote align ="right" class="firstClass secondClass"][/perfectpullquote]

size="21"

Optional: Change the font size of the pullquote's text, in pixels.

[perfectpullquote align ="right" size="32"][/perfectpullquote]

  1. perfect-pullquotes screenshot 1

    This screenshot shows the 'Pullquote' button that will be added to the Visual Editor once installed. The button can be used to insert a left-aligned, right-aligned, or full-width pullquote, accordingly. The actual positioning of the button in your installation may vary.

    An example of a left-aligned and right-aligned pullquote. Your pullquotes will vary depending on your font settings, color choices, etc.

Download the plugin from Wordpress or GitHub. To change the default color of the pullquote’s border before installing, edit lines 71, 79, and 87 of the perfect-pullquotes.css file by changing the HEX value of the border-color attribute. Alternatively, once the plugin is installed, you may utilize the “color” option included within the shortcode.

  1. Upload the compressed perfect-pullquotes.zip plugin file via your Wordpress Dashboard: Plugins > Add New > Upload Plugin, or to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory within your Wordpress installation on your server.
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress

Once installed, the plugin will add a Pullquote dropdown button to the Visual Editor (as seen below) within your Wordpress installation as well as enable the [perfectpullquote] shortcode.

Are all of the shortcode option attributes required?

How can I change the color of the pullquote's border?

To change the default color of the pullquote’s border, before uploading the plugin, edit lines 67, 75, and 83 of the perfect-pullquotes.css file by changing the HEX value of the border-color attribute. Alternatively, once the plugin is installed, you may utilize the “color” option included within the shortcode.

Simply utilize the "class" option on the shortcode tag.

[perfectpullquote align="left" class="firstClass secondClass"]Text[/perfectpullquote]

How can I change the font size of the text?

Simply utilize the "size" option on the shortcode tag by entering the one or two-digit size, in pixels.

[perfectpullquote align="left" size="32"]Text[/perfectpullquote]

How can I add a cite to the quote?

Simply utilize the "cite" option on the shortcode tag.

[perfectpullquote align="left" cite="Author Name"]Text[/perfectpullquote]

Can I link to the cited author's website, online works, etc.?

Simply utilize the "cite" and "link" options on the shortcode tag. Both options must be present in order to generate a working link.

[perfectpullquote align="left" cite="Author Name" link="http://example.com"]Text[/perfectpullquote]

I updated the plugin, but now my pullquotes look weird. Help?

After updating the plugin, you may see "ugly" pullquotes until you clear the cache in your browser and load the new CSS files from the plugin. Server cache time may vary. If the pullquotes continue to look "broken," simply clear your web brower's cache and refresh the page.
