Typography Overview

Typography is a fundamental part of a template, providing you with the tools to characterise your content and bring it to life. There is a vast array of typography available with this template, as is with our previous releases, from list styles, notice blocks and a diverse number of other elements.

There are 2 methods in which to implement the typography into your WordPress content:-

  1. HTML Mode: This is the traditional approach for implementing typography as used in the pre-2009 templates / demos, were you had to use HTML coding / syntax for the typography. This presents the main problem: using HTML for typography may present a problem for certain users who are unaccustomed to HTML and coding.
  2. Shortcodes Mode: The WordPress allows you to implement typography easily using shortcodes, without fear of the WYSIWYG editor ruining your formatting and allows you, and/or your clients to add them to your content with ease. This is through a method similar to BBcode (as seen in a forum).

Why use shortcodes?

Shortcodes are the ideal solution for those with limited coding skills or those who implement our templates for their clients. It is free from the WYSIWYG editors horrific filtering habits and can be easily pre-configured for your personal needs or the needs of your client.

Shortcodes Typography

Shortcodes Example

The shortcodes Typography button is created by using the following syntax with shortcodes:-

[readon url="http://yourlink-here"]Shortcodes Typography[/readon]

However, if we were to use HTML, the following code would be required:-

<p class="rt-readon-surround">
<a class="readon" href="http://yourlink-here">
<span>Read more...</span>
</a> </p>

As you can see, the Shortcodes version is a lot easier to use.
