Blogpost Template

This is the template we use for publishing posts and pages (we activate dropcap by adding class=”dropcap” to 1st paragraph’s HTML under the <p> tag). Every time we have some idea, we would create a new post/page, and copy the content of this template into our new post/page. This way, there is no need to do any heading/color adjustment or repetitive coding. As you shall see in our blogpost template, we try to adhere to the standard of professional typesetting — something which we are obsessed with!

Section 1 (Heading 1 #556b2f)

All paragraphs are justified, but not the section titles (taken care of by our custom CSS).

Also, there should be a smaller space between a section title and the paragraph that follows it, but luckily the theme takes care of that for us.

Subsection 1 (Heading 2 #b07235)

We took a bit of time to experiment with our colour palette, because the resulting layout would apply to every single post/page in the blog.

Subsubsection 1 (Heading 3, Indented #ff9214)

“Some quotes are red (#a30000)”

To avoid monotony, we alternate the quote colors.

“Others are blue (#005B9A)”

Subsection 2

“The pull quotes are ways to introduce additional infos, without overwhelming our eyes and brain.”


All we need to do is to add class=”left” after the first <blockquote in HTML mode.

“And here is a right pull quote”

Section 2

A quote post has a special format:

“The quote can be either in red or blue, but it needs to be justified.”

Alex Bach, founder of Cooper Law Firm, January 1, 2000

Additionally, if a quote in a standard post requires us to provide new personal information (i.e., not mentioned anywhere in the main content), it also needs to adhere to this format.

For Pages

Upload an image (width 820) in the beginning the page.

For Standard Posts

Standard posts have no read more buttons in our theme. A featured image needed.

For Video Posts

No “Read More” line needed. Featured image needed, but not initial image.

For Audio Posts

No “Read More” line needed. Both a featured image and an initial image needed.

For Quote Posts

Insert “Read More” at the end of the 1st paragraph (e.g., before the author’s name). Both a featured image and an initial image needed.

Last line

We use the last lines to promote our site, but we don’t need to include them in our posts — Our plugin will take care of them 😉
