Add Pretty Drop Caps to Your WordPress Blog

Add Pretty Drop Caps to Your WordPress Blog

Drop caps are a small detail that can add a nice touch to your blog posts or pages. They bring a warm reminder of the beautiful typography from the days of print. The new Drop Cap Shortcode plugin gives you the ability to include drop caps wherever you want via a shortcode. It will look something like this:

The Drop Cap Shortcode plugin includes two shortcodes:

  • Write shortcode [A] to get “A” as a dropcode, [B] to get “B”, ect from A-Z
  • Write shortcode [quote] to get an opening quotation mark as a drop cap.

Download and install the plugin and then use the shortcodes above to change the first letters in your paragraph to drop caps or quotation marks. It’s that simple!
