What is the Blockquote Widget?
The Blockquote widget allows you to add quotes to your site. Each Blockquote can be set to include the content of the quote, the author name and the ‘Click to tweet’ button.
4 Different Blockquote Skins to Choose From
When you drag and drop the Blockquote widget you’ll notice 4 skins that are available for the initial Blockquote design. You might remember the skin option from the Posts widget Cards skin release a few months ago. With regards to Blockquote, these are the skins that are available:
Blockquote with a customizable left colored border
Blockquote showing a customizable top quotation mark
A boxed blockquote skin, with colored background, box shadow & border options
A minimalistic blockquote skin, with just the content, author and button design
Click to Tweet Button
A great way to get more traffic is by getting visitors to share posts on various social media outlets, one of which is Twitter.
When you write a blog post, you can add a ‘Click to Tweet’ box inside your post, that will include a quote from the article you’ve written. This way, your readers, while reading your article, can click on the blockquote and share your inspirational quote to their Twitter friends and followers.
In the Blockquote widget, the Click to Tweet button can be customized in a variety of ways.
By adding the Twitter ‘Via username’, you can make sure that your business or personal profile will get properly tagged and the tweet will reach your audience and followers on Twitter.
3 Button Skins, 3 Views and More
The Click to Tweet button comes with 3 skins: Classic, Bubble and Link. It also comes with 3 views: Icon & Text, Icon or Text.
You can also change the call to action text for the button, as well as add an optional ‘Via’ username that will add a reference for the Twitter username to the end of the shared tweet.
Style & Design Options
Besides the typography, color and spacing settings for the content, author and button elements of the Blockquote, you also have several styling options for each of the skins.
The Border skin includes hover style options, as well as color, width, gap and vertical padding. The Quote skin includes color, size and gap settings.The Boxed skin includes padding, hover, background color, border, border radius and box shadow options.
