I don’t have any particular Grand Plan for this version of my website, so I’ve been taking an organic approach of trying this and playing with that, and keeping the stuff I like. One thing I decided I wanted to include early on was something called Pull Quotes.
All I wanted was a stupid pull quote. I had one around somewhere (I’d used the example code to start my first plugin) but I couldn’t find it. I tripped over Shortcodes Ultimate instead.
Shortcodes Ultimate has the dubious honor of making me uncomfortable about my philosophy regarding the proper separation of presentation, content, and function. It is a functional element (a plugin) that changes the way content is presented. Furthermore, it places the control of that presentation within the content.
