FAQ

How do I add a pull quote?

Just select the Easy Pull Quotes button on the post editor. Insert some text. Select your alignment. Press ok.

But what if I want to be difficult and not do that?

Well you could manually enter the shortcode. It takes 1 attribute ‘align’ which can take 1 of 3 arguments ‘align-left’, ‘align-right’, and, you guessed it, ‘align-center’.

Can I edit the styles of the pull quote?

Sure! You’ll just have to use CSS. Right now the class .epq-pull-quote-default contains the styling for the pull quote. If you want to edit the Twitter icon that can be done with .epq-twitter. But be warned the icon is using the proper Twitter brand standard colors.

Anything else I need to know?

Not really. The plugin is pretty simple.
