Simple Pull Quote


Simple Pull Quote WordPress Plugin provides an easy way for you to insert pull quotes into your posts and pages. It adds an easy-to-use “Pullquote” button to both the HTML and TinyMCE editors.

IMPORTANT: To use in the new WordPress (Gutenberg) editor, use the “Classic” block.

See the plugin in action as well as how to use it:


  1. Select the text that you want to use as your pull quote.
  2. Click on the “Pullquote” button in either the Visual or HTML editor.

    For more help on usage, visit the Simple Pull Quote Homepage for a visual guide.

How do I update the look of the pull quotes?

To change the look of your pull quotes, open your theme’s “style.css” file and create a CSS class called “simplePullQuotes”. Edit this class according to your tastes. IMPORTANT: Make sure your theme’s “wp_head()” function comes before your theme’s stylesheet or else this won’t work.

How do I use more than one pull quote in a single post or page?

Simply select the text that you want to use as a pull quote and click the “Pullquote” button in either the visual or html editor.


  • Simple Pull Quote plugin in action!
  • Add pullquotes via the Wordpress TinyMCE editor.
  • Add pullquotes via the Wordpress HTML editor.


  1. Either use the built-in WordPress plugin installer to grab the plugin from the WordPress plugin repository, or upload the entire contents of the folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.


Q: How do I make the quote appear on the left side?
A: After you create your pull quote, add “class=“left” to it like this: [pullquote class=”left”]TEXT HERE[/pullquote]

Q: What if I am using a visual editor besides TinyMCE?
A: You will need to manually add the shortcode [pullquote]YOUR TEXT HERE[/pullquote]

Q: Is there a maximum number of pull quotes I can have on a single blog post or page?
A: No. You can have as many pull quotes as you would like.

Q: How do I change the colors and background image on the pullquotes?
A: Override the default “simplePullQuote” class in your theme’s CSS file. Here is a “How To” video about this:

Q: Where is the “Pullquote” button in the HTML editor?
A: I don’t know. It disappeared with the most recent version of WordPress, and I am working on fixing it.

Doesn’t do anything. No visual button, shortcode doesn’t have any effect.
