Post CSS Styles

To enhance Carmack, we have included some styles that can be reused in your blog posts and pages.

Intro Paragraph

Making the first paragraph in an article larger than the others is a nice, simple way to pull the reader’s attention to your articles. To do this, add the ‘intro’ class to your first paragraph.

<p class="intro">The first paragraph in an article is the hardest.</p>

Text Highlight

Apply a highlighter to your text, by wrapping your text in a span with the class ‘highlight’.

<span class="highlight">This text is highlighted</span>.

Drop Caps

A drop cap is a large letter at the beginning of a paragraph. To add a drop cap, wrap the first character in a block of text in a span with the class ‘dropcap’. See below for an example:

<span class="dropcap">T</span>his is how you drop cap.

Custom Post Formats

Carmack supports some of the available Post Formats, and styles each differently on the blog, archive, and search pages. Using the different formats will visually distinguish your types of content.

  1. Standard — The default blog post format displays the content as a news article, with an optional featured image positioned on the left.
  2. Quote — The quote post format will highlight the first blockquote found in your blog post. If there’s no blockquote, then it will display the entire blog post.
  3. Audio — The audio post format will highlight the first audio file found in your blog post.
  4. Video — The video post format will display your video and the post title. It supports YouTube, Vimeo, and hosted videos; and the theme will automatically display the first video that’s added to the post content.
  5. Image — The image post format displays a large featured image and the post title. Posts with the image format need a featured image assigned to display properly.
  6. Gallery — Gallery posts will display a gallery of images from the gallery you’ve added to the post content.


Carmack has 3 optional sidebars. They will only display if they contain widgets.
