WP slabText


This is a plugin for WordPress that allows for re-rendering a multi-rowed long headlines more beautiful and more impressive without any conversion from text to image. It uses the effect of a great jQuery plugin slabText that was created by Brian McAllister.

You can split a long title at any point as you like with ||(double-pipe) into multi-row, so multibyte language sites can also recieve the benefit.

Even more, can specify the font to use in a title from Google Web Fonts.

このプラグインは、ブログやニュース系サイトによく見られる複数行に渡る長い記事の見出しを、画像に変換することなく、より美しく、インパクトのあるものに再描画します。Brian McAllister氏のjQueryプラグイン「slabText」の効果を使用します(英文の様々なサンプルはリンク先でご覧になれます)。

記事タイトルの任意の位置に ||(パイプ2本)を入力することで、行の折り返しポイントを決めることができるので、日本語(マルチバイト)サイトでも効果を得られます。


見出しに使用するフォントを、Google Web Fontsから指定することもできます(欧文フォントのみ)。


The template must have call post_class function at outer box of the post title in the loop.
If you use Head Cleaner, I recommend to excludes wpstxt-call from the list of Active Filters.
