You have an amazing story to tell

If a picture is worth a thousand words, what’s a video worth? How about timelines, maps, character bios, audio and full-screen images? The Aesop Story Engine plugin lets you build interactive stories using their storytelling components. True Blue helps you do it with style.

This is an H3 header created in the visual editor

You use the standard WordPress post editor to create an interactive story. That means you can just input content directly in the editor, like you’re used to.

This is a quote component. It can have a custom background image too.

Timeline Point B

This is an H4 heading for a content component containing two columns

It helps to outline the visual elements of a document or presentation, eg. typography, font, or layout. Lorem ipsum is mostly a part of a Latin text by the classical author and philosopher Cicero.

Its words and letters have been changed by addition or removal, so to deliberately render its content nonsensical; it’s not genuine, correct, or comprehensible Latin.

As Cicero’s text doesn’t contain the letters K, W, or Z, alien to latin, these, and others are often inserted randomly to mimic the typographic appearance of European languages, as are digraphs not to be found in the original.

In a professional context it often happens that private or corporate clients order a publication to be made and presented with the actual content still not ready. Think of a news blog that’s filled with content hourly on the day of going live.

However, reviewers tend to be distracted by comprehensible content, say, a random text copied from a newspaper or the internet. The are likely to focus on the text, disregarding the layout and its elements. Besides, random text risks to be unintendedly humorous or offensive, an unacceptable risk in corporate environments.
