This is bold text to alert you that I’m going to paste in some lorem (for development purposes only, there’s a plugin onboard that generates it automatically) so I can show off pullquotes and image embeds.

Worth noting: WordPress pages print body text (ex. paragraphs) using a sans serif font. WordPress posts print body text using a serif font. This helps differentiate between non-article and article content.

Phasellus feugiat odio ac eros volutpat tempor. Cras egestas, purus nec viverra varius, est eros cursus neque, ac iaculis est arcu et mi. Nunc dictum porta vestibulum. In auctor ornare velit dapibus malesuada. Quisque sodales varius risus, eu pretium velit porttitor sed. Cras nulla ipsum, placerat a eros eu, imperdiet tincidunt metus. Morbi sagittis ligula ut ante lobortis eleifend. Curabitur fermentum, justo sit amet mollis fringilla, ante felis dignissim felis, quis sagittis felis justo ac nisl. Vestibulum ante ipsum primis in faucibus orci luctus et ultrices posuere cubilia Curae; Praesent vel eleifend lacus, nec ultrices erat. Integer porttitor hendrerit ipsum. Suspendisse potenti. Interdum et malesuada fames ac ante ipsum primis in faucibus. In quis sapien consectetur, placerat ante vitae, congue lacus. Pellentesque interdum vitae arcu a dignissim. Integer vehicula turpis posuere orci laoreet tincidunt.

This is an example of a pullquote, which you can create by wrapping text inside a pair of square brackets. (Stay here for a moment, and you’ll notice the text colour is cycling. It loops through all hues every 30 secs.)

Cras consectetur quam vitae felis varius auctor. Aenean sagittis, nulla et varius suscipit, ligula odio suscipit est, sit amet hendrerit leo augue nec lorem. Donec commodo metus nec arcu tempus, at elementum neque suscipit. Fusce non bibendum lacus, nec porta mi. Vivamus et rutrum risus, et suscipit quam. Vivamus posuere dui eget elit suscipit, id malesuada arcu sollicitudin. Nulla blandit erat purus, nec posuere nisl vulputate vel. Suspendisse potenti. Nam ut nisi vel dui mollis elementum. Donec porta hendrerit velit, volutpat varius elit consectetur vel.

Pellentesque tincidunt arcu a urna ullamcorper, id malesuada justo porttitor. Vestibulum eu aliquet orci. Mauris tellus nulla, pellentesque ut metus sed, dignissim consequat quam. Nunc luctus, nulla sed tempor congue, ante lectus sollicitudin ante, a malesuada felis nisl eu mauris. Aenean velit lorem, pellentesque quis volutpat non, lacinia vel velit. Vivamus imperdiet felis faucibus augue semper, sed auctor quam ornare. Quisque tortor enim, mattis eu lobortis laoreet, varius fermentum enim. Ut mattis quis sapien eget imperdiet. Etiam sed consectetur mauris. Ut scelerisque mollis erat, interdum semper lorem malesuada vitae. Mauris nisl tellus, cursus eu libero et, congue commodo velit. Praesent mollis ultrices tincidunt. Cras eleifend ante id mauris pulvinar, sit amet interdum nunc convallis. In ante metus, consequat ut ligula sit amet, imperdiet ornare justo.

This is another pullquote, which you will notice occupies a wider column (at large screen sizes) than the first one.

Class aptent taciti sociosqu ad litora torquent per conubia nostra, per inceptos himenaeos. Pellentesque adipiscing nisi non pellentesque congue. Vivamus risus ipsum, blandit et egestas a, blandit a lorem. Sed tempus dapibus felis, ac vestibulum est luctus sit amet. Nam aliquam iaculis enim, sed mollis mi suscipit gravida. Mauris in tellus sem. Morbi tempus ante id libero dignissim ultricies. Maecenas quam sem, porttitor at leo eget, fringilla consequat leo. Duis malesuada vulputate tortor, id eleifend arcu posuere vel. Donec eleifend malesuada elit, vitae egestas elit mattis vitae. Maecenas tristique accumsan sagittis. Cras justo lorem, rutrum quis faucibus non, consequat euismod neque. Aliquam a tortor in velit facilisis elementum. Curabitur ac nunc ac nulla aliquet tristique et nec orci. Vivamus neque neque, malesuada laoreet lectus nec, sagittis sodales metus.

And here is a third pullquote, which has a different shape again. This left-centre-right pattern will repeat as more pullquotes are added.

Fusce sed nisi pharetra, hendrerit dolor vel, faucibus enim. Vivamus at venenatis arcu. Nullam viverra metus sapien, ac tempus ante eleifend et. Nam at commodo diam. Integer et placerat arcu, sit amet venenatis est. Praesent id dolor turpis. Pellentesque dui dolor, euismod et pharetra nec, egestas a ante. Curabitur pretium nisl a interdum fringilla. Nam ullamcorper mi ut varius blandit. Integer pretium elit eget nibh tincidunt, sed lacinia nisl scelerisque.

Duis nec pretium velit, id hendrerit urna. Ut vulputate dolor id nulla vestibulum gravida. Maecenas massa risus, dapibus in faucibus at, scelerisque et velit. Pellentesque habitant morbi tristique senectus et netus et malesuada fames ac turpis egestas. Ut tincidunt erat libero, at sollicitudin nisl porta eget. Curabitur id nibh sit amet nibh lacinia tincidunt et in mi. Nam ornare malesuada porta. Nullam vitae purus quis purus molestie porttitor eu et nisi.

Wait, hang on: I’ve pushed the wrong version of the stylesheet, as the images I’m placing below are not behaving as intended. I’ll patch this up ASAP.

Here come some images, in this order of appearance: aligned left, centre, and right with captions/credits; aligned left, centre, and right with no captions or credits. (WordPress delivers images differently depending whether captions are included or not. I’m showing off that I’ve normalized presentation.)

Notice that text can flow around this image, which is aligned to the left. The same is true of right-aligned images, as we will see shortly. Images aligned to the centre (or with no alignment) will not permit text to flow around their left or right sides.

Preformatted (for poetry)

(This is a paragraph.) This is an example page. It’s different from a blog post because it will stay in one place and will show up in your site navigation (in most themes). Most people start with an About page that introduces them to potential site visitors. It might say something like this:

(This is a blockquote.) Hi there! I’m a bike messenger by day, aspiring actor by night, and this is my website. I live in Los Angeles, have a great dog named Jack, and I like piña coladas. (And gettin’ caught in the rain.)

…or something like this:

  • The XYZ Doohickey Company was founded in 1971, and has been providing quality doohickeys to the public ever since.
  • Located in Gotham City, XYZ employs over 2,000 people and does all kinds of awesome things for the Gotham community.
