In today’s article, I’ll show you how to add drop caps in WordPress posts. Drop caps is a style technique for books and magazines that indicated long reads. To get that style in your WordPress post, just install and activate the simple drop cap plugin.
Then go to Settings — > Simple Drop Cap to configure.
Here you have a few display modes to choose from.
Frst is the normal mode where the first letter is bigger than the others like this. The float mode makes the first letter bigger but it also floats the text around it like an image does.
The last one is your way to completely customize it with your own css rules. Here you can choose the color of the drop capped letter.
Finally down here you can choose to apply the drop cap to all your posts automatically.
After we make our changes, we’ll just click save changes.
If you only want certain posts to have this feature, then you’ll want to apply this shortcode around the letter in your post.
And now we can see what it looks like on our demo site.
