When creating a page or even a post where you discuss your ebook, it might be handy to know how to put a glowing testimonial in a pull quote in WordPress. It’s really quite EZ.

Hi Judith,

 

Firstly, I think you are a pure genius for figuring all this stuff out by yourself and I simply cannot thank you enough for releasing your amazing Kindle eBook Course!!

 

I am going to mention how much you’ve helped me on my blog.

 

I will be completely reformatting my existing Kindle book (The Morgan Project) using your new macro and guidelines.

 

All the very best,

To the right is an example of a pull quote with an unsolicited testimonial I got from a satisfied customer. If you’re like me, you’ll pay particular attention to what’s inside a pull quote and that’s why it’s so useful for testimonials or frankly anything you want to set off.

Maybe even — a bulleted list of the main points in your post would look good in a pull quote.

You put the following code for your pull quote at the very bottom of your style.css (in WordPress, this can be found by clicking on Appearance then Editor):

/********Pull Quote Info*************/

blockquote.right {
float:right;
width:25%;
margin: 0px 0px 15px 30px;
border:1px dashed #000;
padding: 15px 15px 0;
background-color: #ede8ed;
font-size: .8em;
line-height:1.5em;
}

blockquote.left {
float:left;
width:25%;
margin: 0px 30px 15px 0px;
border:1px dashed #000;
padding: 15px 15px 0;
background-color: #ede8ed;
font-size: .8em;
line-height:1.5em;
}

You, of course will change the pull quote (blockquote.right or blockquote.left) colors, font-size, etc. to fit your theme. Even a pull quote that is white with a black outline would draw attention.

Then when you’re writing your post using the HTML tab and not the Visual Editor, you’ll put in the following code where you want the testimonial to begin:

<blockquote class=”right”><p style=”text-indent: 10px;”>The words in your pull quote testimonial would go here and can be as long or a short as you want. Then you end it with a </p></blockquote>

I have no clue why they called it a pull quote but it’s really quite handy and might help your ebook sales.

P.S. Besides what you’ve just learned about the pull quote and how EZ it is to use, let me know what else you want to know by leaving a comment.
