  • I had the same problem and solved it by adding custom css. If I was smarter, I’d go back in and create a custom class I guess. I’m not up on the best practices honestly. Here’s the code I used:

    .entry-content p:first-of-type:first-letter { float: left; color: #903; font-size: 75px; line-height: 60px; padding-top: 4px; padding-right: 8px; padding-left: 3px; font-family: Georgia;

    Hi – thanks for the advice. I can’t make the css work for me – but I’m on the track…



    Some more info and an update:

    I’m using Longform with some plugins that don’t mess with post formatting at all. I have Aesop active, but I’m not currently using it on any post or page.

    I created a child theme with Osorbius Child Theme Creator and use the Osorbius editor instead of the built-in CSS editor. Any CSS entered into this editor and saved in your child-theme will automatically be applied after the parent theme styles.

    Any paragraph I want to have the drop-cap I gave the class “drop”

    Now I just put the CSS into the editor and it works. Instead of “.entry-content” above (which applies style to every first paragraph on the site) I use “.drop”

    We will check this and fix the issue in next theme update.

    Best Regards,

    I noticed the last update for Longform was on the 28 June. I’m still experiencing this issue and have only recently installed Longform. Does this issue occur in the pro version as well?

    Cheers Tina

    PS: Thank you BMCCrain for the workaround.
