[resolved] CSS Editing - Fixing blockquotes (they don't stand out anymore) (12 posts)

    Hello,

    I am having a problem using block quotes on my blog. Ever since updating to the latest version of wordpress when my writers or I try to use a block quote the feature no longer makes them stand out. I was wondering if anyone could give me a snippet of code to paste into the new CSS editor function on Jetpack to just override whatever is wrong with my theme? (its a theme called temptastic)

    If its a paid theme than you can get support from theme vendor...

    Let's just say they're unreachable. I'd rather just code it myself if someone can show me which line of code makes them indent and "lift" above the rest of the text again.

    Thanks

    Really I was just hoping there was a generic line of code I could paste in this new CSS editor that will just override whatever's in there. I'm new to working on the code itself. Any help is appreciated.

    Here in your style there is no blockquote style i think you removed it by mistake.

    So keep it from other source and paste into your style.css

    Ok thanks I'll try to steal it from 2011's. Is this the right code to throw in there?
    `}
    blockquote:before, blockquote:after,
    q:before, q:after {
    content: "";
    }
    blockquote, q {
    quotes: "" "";
    }

    The theme file is on another writers computer, if that doesn't look like it will work I'll just have him send me the original style.css for it.

    Sorry but this code is already in your style.css...

    What about this one from 2010?

    }
    blockquote {
    quotes: none;
    }
    blockquote:before, blockquote:after {
    content: '';
    content: none;
    }
    del {
    text-decoration: line-through;
    }

    Is there something to do with it saying quotes: none; and if so what can I change "none" to?
