[resolved] Change Block Quotes And Bold Text? (10 posts)

    When I quote something it uses giant " symbols to open it up, the text is italicized and then no close ". How can I change that to a block format, like a box around the text. Also, the bold is not noticeable in my posts. Not sure how to address that either. Any help would be appreciated.

    You need to edit your theme's CSS.

    A link that explains this easily? Something I could just cut and past in?

    Not without you providing a link to a page demonstrating the problem.

    Try adding:

    #content #page ul#entries li blockquote {
        background-color:#ccc;
        background-image:none;
        margin: 20px;
        padding: 10px 20px;
        -moz-border-radius:10px;
        -webkit-border-radius:10px;
        border-radius:10px;
    
    }

    to your theme's stylesheet.

    If I paste that in before the script already in their in changes the entire page look.

    /*
    Theme Name: Themeology 1.3.1
    Description: Semantic, SEO Optimised, Custom WordPress Theme for Themeology
    Author: Brandon R Jones
    Author URI: http://www.makedesignnotwar.com
    */

    /* Themeology */
    /* CORE STYLESHEET */

    /* Stylesheet IMPORT Themeology */
    @import url(assets/css/core.css);

    Is this the section I want to past it into? Inside this or?

    Did some searching. Got a code to work, I pasted it below the template it came with, new code in bold.

    /*

    Description: Semantic, SEO Optimised, Custom WordPress Theme for Themeology
    Author: Brandon R Jones
    Author URI: http://www.makedesignnotwar.com
    */

    /* Themeology */
    /* CORE STYLESHEET */

    /* Stylesheet IMPORT Themeology */
    @import url(assets/css/core.css);

    blockquote {

    padding:3px;

    color:#575757;

    font-style: normal;

    padding: 0 50px;

    font-size: 1.2em;

    border: 4px solid #f0f0f1;

    background-color: #909090 url("path/to/blockquote.gif") no-repeat 0 0;

    }

    Not sure how to get a background color and would also like to narrow the box so it's not so wide. Going for something like this still.
