The Drop Caps plugin adds drop caps to your posts, pages and comments. It comes with some cool css styling and lots of options.
The drop caps plugin is fairly self-explanatory. It adds mark-up to your posts and pages which allows you to create wicked drop caps like those shown on my blog or in the screenshots.
New in version 2: You can now add drop caps to comments and excerpts as well as post content.
Updating to 2.1: The plugin now adds a
span as opposed to a
strong tag. Make sure to change your stylesheet.
The plugin now has loads of settings. You can choose which pages to put drop caps on. You can exclude specific posts and categories and you can also choose wether to use the default styling.
The plugin marks-up the first paragraph starting with a capital letter. It makes the first letter into a drop cap and gives the paragraph a class of "first-child" allowing you to style the first paragraph in a different way.
