BigTextDMS is a section that resizes text to fit one or more words on a line. It’s responsive and each line is very customizable.
BigTextDMS makes the BigText script quick and easy to implement into your sites and adds additional options. You can play with the script’s demo to see what you can do with BigTextDMS (plus extra stuff that the BigText script alone doesn’t do).
If you purchased the v2/Framework version of BigText, then you’ll like the BigTextDMS section even better. Here are some improvements over the v2 version:
- Unlimited number of lines
- No weird “starting at Line number zero” stuff
- Uses the DMS accordion options to consolidate all those options and make it easy to to re-order the lines
- No more need to insert code to indent lines; now a built-in option
- Includes full width and non-full width sections
- You cannot enter “0” (zero) or ” ” (blank space) as the only thing on a line.
- Really, you can enter a single zero and it’ll save in the options, but it won’t display on the front-end. And all trailing spaces are stripped so zero and a space will be stripped to a single zero, which will then not be displayed on the front-end.
- Any other single character (like the letter “O”) will be displayed (but it’ll be large).
- Note: multiple zeros (like “00”) are displayed.
- You can use HTML on each line.
- You might want to use HTML to create a span with specific styling.
- Or insert one or more line breaks, in which case you might want to check the Exempt box and just insert multiple < br > (without spaces) in a single line, and/or set a maximum font-size.
- You can use shortcodes on each line.
- Which means this section goes nicely with the Icon Font Shortcode plugin.
- You can also turn the text on each BigText line into a link with my free TK Shortcode Link plugin.
- Tip: Each shortcode MUST start and end on the same line. In other words, don’t have the start of a shortcode on Line 3 and the end of that same shortcode on Line 4.
- Although there is a CSS text-transform option, if you want all caps, it’s best to just enter the text in all caps instead of entering as lower-case and then using text-transform.
- This is because the BigText script runs on the text as entered and then the text-transform happens afterwards.
- Which can result in the text output being wider than the width of the page.
