Re: smd_pullquote: Magazine-style quotes from article text

I have in mind a TXPQ-like version of quotes (they use custom fields)

Sorry, I don’t get it. txpq uses this styling inline in article bodies to pull the quotes out: <span class="pulleft">...</span>

It does have one custom field dedicated to the byline at the top (under the logo) but that’s a special case so is handled with <txp:if_custom_field/>.

Next step is the use of a colorpicker to choose the coordinated colour of the code.

Eh? The pullquote that is generated by the plugin is styled by normal CSS rules. It generates a ‘q’ tag with a class of pQuote. Style/position to taste.

where can I find the updated version?

It’s not released yet.

Re: smd_pullquote: Magazine-style quotes from article text

nm… could this be used for multiple article images?

I was thinking of someway of inserting multiple article images throughout the article – similar to some BBC stories

ignore the video – if you scroll down there are 2 images on the right hand side of the text

I think this might work…. I’ll experiment some more tomorrow, but it wraps the images – I just got to figure the rest of the plugin out :)

I think it should work. Anything you wrap in your designated class will be grabbed from the article and put in its own wraptag (by default it’s <q>). You can then tell it to remove the original “quote” (image) from the body of the text.

I haven’t time today to try it out (and I can’t find my latest version with support for smd_pagicle and without all the stupid jQuery attributes in it, humbug… must be at home somewhere) but if you get it working please post your method here, thanks.

Re: smd_pullquote: Magazine-style quotes from article text

I’m trying this and I got it working with 1 quote/article. When I put more than one quote in the same article (even if I use different search_classes) an try to put them ‘before’ different ids in the article, they all get showed together, before the last id location.

Maybe there’s something I don’t get, for two or more quotes per article? I’m still on 4.5.7. Any hint or example will help!
