WP Figlet

WP Figlet allows you to draw ASCII art in your posts and page source.

Here is an example:

[ascii]WP Figlet[/ascii]

You can use ASCII art to say a personal message about your site. Or it can say an advertisement.

This can be especially true for web design or development sites or if your site just plain rocks, as often people like to take a look at the page source to see how was something done or what plugins were used. This ads just a little extra touch of coolness that might persuade them to actually give you that call. Of course there are ton’s of fonts and you can customize is the way you want.

View the html source of this page for more usage ideas.



1. Upload the whole plugin folder to your /wp-content/plugins/ folder.
2. Go to the Plugins page and activate the plugin.
3. Use the Options page to change your options

You can write ASCII text by using the "ascii" shortcode in your posts. For example:

[ ascii]WordPress rocks[/ascii]

You can supply font and smalltext parameters as well:

[ ascii font="straight.flf" smalltext="for real!" ]WordPress rocks![/ascii]

    Hi Vladimir,

    I don't see anything in the source of this page. Did you disable the plugin on your site?
    Also I would like to know whether I can achieve something like labnol.org with your plugin.

    I would like to know what plugins are already in grace themes. I don't know what plugin to put in.
    What you recommend for the Grace Themes?

    Thanks Bill Kyle

    I used to make my own ASCII art. Would this plugin (WP Figlet) let me post ASCII art or just one line of text? Would be a lot of fun to use my ASCII art in my blog if I had something that kept it from being distorted.
