Coming Soon! New WordPress Plugin – BP Pretty Quotes

My newest plugin is still in development, but I’m pretty excited about it.  BP Pretty Quotes is a set of shortcodes that results in nicely formatted blocks for quotations or other text you want highlighted.

  • Default (the block above)
  • Leather (example to the right)
  • Swoosh
  • Balloon
  • Vinyl
  • Polaroid
  • Playbill

Each can be centered, as above, or floated to the left or right.  Depending on the style there are some additional formatting options that can be done, like color and width.

I did not create the styles used in the plugin; the default style is from a bootsnipp snippet and the remaining six styles were adapted from this CoDrops article.

As you can tell from the examples, some styles are more suited for different kinds of quotes than others.  The Vinyl style, for example, is best for quotes that naturally break into two parts.  The Polaroid style can accommodate a longer quote.

If you are interested in beta testing this plugin drop me a line at diane@beyond-paper.com.

Here are examples, in order, of Swoosh, Balloon, Vinyl, Polaroid and Playbill:
