Overhanging Images and Pull Quotes

Pull quotes are a great way to draw your readers into a post. On a large monitor, the pull quote overhangs the main column to maintain text readability. All you need to do is add a class of alignleft, alignright, or aligncenter to a blockquote element. Here are some examples of how to do that in the Text Editor.

<blockquote class="alignleft">A bolder blockquote that floats into the left margin

<blockquote class="alignright">A bolder blockquote that floats into the right margin

<blockquote class="aligncenter">A bolder blockquote that extends into both margins

Images that are wider than 960px also overhang the column. Show off your images without being restricted by the column width!



Widgets are located on a screen that appears when you click the ellipsis icon (three dots) in the main menu.
