Pull Quotes in Twenty Eleven

Here you can see some of the pull styles Duster has to offer, applied to blockquotes. You can also use them on images to break them out from the post content into one of the margins on the single post and page view.

Testing a blockquote on the right

Pretty cool, huh? They can help add some visual interest to text post and — if you use them wisely — some sophistication to your blog post. It’s pretty simple to use them too if you’re comfortable switching over to the HTML view in the Post and Page Editor. Here’s how to achieve pull quotes:

<blockquote class="pull alignright">Your quote here</blockquote>

You can change “alignright” to “alignleft” if you want, or even use only the “pull” class like so.

Testing a long long long blockquote with pull class. It is quite long.

Now you know how to use them! Have fun. :)

Featured Posts in Twenty Eleven

Featured

Twenty Eleven uses Sticky Posts to power the Featured Post area on the Showcase Page Template. And it’s pretty easy to use. Just publish a Sticky Post and it’ll show up in the Featured Post area. If you add a Featured Image the same size as the Custom Header Image it’ll be used as a full-width image link to the post. If your Featured Image is smaller, it will neatly float to the right of your content. Neat, huh? If you have more than one Sticky Post featured you can view up to 10 of them on the showcase page using the circular links that appear at the bottom left of the Featured Post area. Totally neat.
