Blockquotes not formatting text? (6 posts)

    Hi all,
    I searched on blockquote and found some threads but nothing that answered my question.
    When I use a blockquote the text is not formatted according to the rest of the CSS for my site, which is the dots layout.
    Test example post:

    I believe I need to add something to my CSS to make the blockquote text use the font the rest of the site does. How do I do that?
    Thanks, kj

    Try having a carriage return after the quote:

    Blah blah blah

    View Source shows no tag inside the blockquote right now.

    Superb, thanks. Wurks grate. Was putting them intermixed with the text as that was how it worked with Blogger. I'm so glad to be DONE with that service...WP rocks. thanks again.

    Or, you can define the blockquote in your CSS by putting
    #blockquote {
    (blah blah various parameters)
    }
    THat's how I did it on my blog (which is also a Dots template), and when I use the Markup tag > (which designates a blockquote), the blockquote gets styled how I like.

    in the css:
    blockquote {
    color: #666;
    margin: 15px 0;
    padding: 0 0 0 40px;
    background: url('layout/kubrickblockquote.png') no-repeat top left;
    }
    Of course you will need your own image and link to it.
