Style Guide

You can add an intro­duc­to­ry larg­er size text to your arti­cles by sim­ply wrap­ping a para­graph in a p tag with the CSS class of “intro”. Put sim­ply, larg­er text will usu­al­ly be read before small­er text.

We paid a lot of atten­tion to get­ting the basics of our typog­ra­phy right in the new Word­Press Blog theme. The pur­pose of this page is to help deter­mine what default set­tings are with CSS and to make sure that all pos­si­ble ele­ments are includ­ed. For exam­ple we looked at head­ings. Love­ly head­ings.

Heading Two Formatting

Drop­cap can be added by wrap­ping the first let­ter of the first word in a span tag with the CSS class of “drop­cap”. Instead of using the body text font, we use the dis­play font from our titles. This also ties the two ele­ments togeth­er if the dis­play font works well with the body text.openers.

We’ve con­sid­ered the needs of cooks that want to start their recipe jour­nal, so we are styled the recipe for­mat in such way that it beau­ti­ful­ly dis­plays the prepa­ra­tion steps.

Put your recipe here. Tip: use ordered and unordered lists, head­ings, images, and links to improve the look of your recipe. You can also use spe­cial tags to for­mat notes, ingre­di­ents, and direc­tions.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw shelled nuts
  • 14 cup light brown sug­ar
  • 2 table­spoons unsalt­ed but­ter
  • 2 tea­spoons rose­mary
  • 1 tea­spoon flake sea salt
  • 12 tea­spoon chili flakes

Directions

  1. Line a bak­ing sheet with parch­ment paper and set it aside.
  2. Melt the but­ter over medi­um high heat in a large fry­ing pan. Add the brown sug­ar and stir to com­bine.
  3. Con­tin­ue cook­ing until the sug­ar melts, about 3 to 5 min­utes, stir­ring every minute.
  4. Add the nuts and cook until they are toast­ed and very fra­grant, about 8 min­utes, stir­ring every minute.
  5. If the pan begins smok­ing, remove it from the heat and stir it until it stops smok­ing, then place it back over the heat and con­tin­ue stir­ring every minute until the nuts are suf­fi­cient­ly toast­ed.
  6. Emp­ty the pan con­tents onto the parch­ment paper-lined bak­ing sheet and spread the nuts mix­ture out even­ly using a spat­u­la. Imme­di­ate­ly sprin­kle with the rose­mary, salt, and chili. Allow to cool to room tem­per­a­ture.
  7. Once cooled, break apart any large chunks of nuts into indi­vid­ual nuts and serve.

Tips & Tricks: And the whipped cream round­ed out all the fla­vors and just added a nice and fluffy ele­ment to the dish. YUM. I got all my ingre­di­ents at New Sea­sons Mar­ket, which is a store local to the Pacif­ic North­west area that sells a huge array of deli­cious sea­son­al fresh pro­duce and all-nat­ur­al ingre­di­ents. You can see if there’s a store near you using their find-a-store loca­tor here.

Heading Three

You can also use a pure­ly dec­o­ra­tive font. There are thou­sands of dec­o­ra­tive type­faces, and most of them aren’t appro­pri­ate for use in a book’s body text.

Block­quotes are a great way to dis­play and for­mat quo­ta­tions. Insert beau­ti­ful quotes using the “quote” but­ton from the visu­al edi­tor. To add an author just wrap its name in a cite tag.

Tables are use­ful for lay­outs where text needs to be po­si­tioned side-by-side or float­ing at spe­cif­ic lo­ca­tions on the page. If mak­ing these is frus­trat­ing with the usu­al lay­out tools, try us­ing a table.

 

Type Font Descrip­tion
Human­ist Sabon Close­ly con­nect­ed to cal­lig­ra­phy
Tran­si­tion­al Baskerville More abstract and less organ­ic
Mod­ern Bodoni Note the thin, straight ser­ifs
Slab Serif Claren­don Egypt­ian type­faces have heavy ser­ifs

 

 

To high­light a text, you sim­ply need to wrap it into a with the class “high­light”. This can be done in the Text edi­tor view.

Heading four

To split the text in a two columns lay­out you can use our Grid­able plu­g­in. Hav­ing mul­ti­ple columns allows for a very ver­sa­tile ad grid, and, tra­di­tion­al­ly, news­pa­pers were in the busi­ness of sell­ing ads.babies in slings around front.There is a gen­er­al rule that one line of unjus­ti­fied text should have around 9–12 words. For jus­ti­fied text these num­bers are around 10–15 words. Since some words are longer and some short­er this is not a per­fect mea­sure­ment.

Small columns of text are eas­i­er to read than large ones. Imag­ine a news­pa­per sized line that stretched across an entire page. It would be very easy to skip a line. For jus­ti­fied text these num­bers are around 10–15 words. Since some words are longer and some short­er this is not a per­fect mea­sure­ments. You must ask your­self how to eas­i­ly achieve these num­bers? Don’t wor­ry it is easy, you won’t have to count the char­ac­ters one by one.

Image Styles

Wel­come to image align­ment! The best way to demon­strate the ebb and flow of the var­i­ous image posi­tion­ing options is to nes­tle them snug­gly among an ocean of words. Grab a pad­dle and let’s get start­ed.

The image above hap­pens to be a cen­tered full-width exam­ple.

The rest of this para­graph is filler for the sake of see­ing the text wrap around a right aligned image.

As you can see there should be some space above, below, and to the left of the image. The text should not be creep­ing on the image. Creep­ing is just not right. Images need breath­ing room too. Let them speak like you words.

Let them do their jobs with­out any has­sle from the text. In about one more sen­tence here, we’ll see that the text moves from the right of the image down below the image in seam­less tran­si­tion.

Don’t let any­one else tell you dif­fer­ent­ly. In just a bit here, you should see the text start to wrap below the left aligned image and set­tle in nice­ly. There should still be plen­ty of room and every­thing should be sit­ting pret­ty. Yeah… Just like that. It nev­er felt so good to be right.

And now we’re going to shift things to the left align. Again, there should be  plen­ty of room above, below, and to the right of the image. Just look at him there… Hey guy! Way to rock that left side. I don’t care what the right aligned image says, you look great.

And that’s a wrap, yo! You sur­vived the tumul­tuous waters of align­ment. In just a bit here, you should see the text start to wrap below the right aligned image and set­tle in nice­ly. There should still be plen­ty of room and every­thing should be sit­ting pret­ty.
