WordPress has a formatting button for basic “blockquotes,” but our theme, Largo, has a special tool to allow authors to insert pull quotes into articles.
Normal block quotes look like this. Create this format by using the Blockquote button from the toolbar above.
Largo’s Module Wrapper applies a more visually rich style to selected text, and allows you to wrap content around it like you would be able to do in a print newspaper or magazine.
The Module Wrapper allows you to make a selection of text appear as an aside or a pull quote. You can also use it to include embedded content like a YouTube video, and make it responsive for different screen sizes. To use it, select the content you want as the pull quote or embedded media and click the Module Wrapper icon which is the furthest to the right in the formatting tool bar
- Aside, which pulls the content aside and wraps the other post content around it. This is similar to a pull quote but with undecorated text and is most commonly used for adding sidebars to a longer story.
- Pull Quote, which also pulls the selected text aside and applies styling to make it stand out from the body text.
- Embedded Media, which is useful for videos and other embedded content to make them resize responsively for different screen sizes.
Use the Module Wrapper options to align your selection left, right, or center, and to display half-width or full-width. In the case of embedded media, you can choose to extract the width from the embed code itself but this will prevent it from resizing responsively.
