[resolved] new background color for blockquotes (4 posts)

    Please help. I'm new to WP. I'm using the theme Simple Style 1.10.1 by TemplateLite.com. I want my blockquotes to have a different background color from the rest of each post. My theme came like this:

    blockquote {
    clear: left;
    text-align: justify;
    padding: 0px 0px 0px 10px;
    margin: 20px 20px 10px 20px;
    border-left: 2px solid #666666;
    }

    I tried changing it to this:

    blockquote {
    background: #E8E8E8;
    clear: left;
    text-align: justify;
    padding: 0px 0px 0px 10px;
    margin: 20px 20px 10px 20px;
    border-left: 2px solid #52665F;
    }

    I tried it again after deleting the "clear: left;" and switching a couple other things around, but nothing has changed the background color.

    Any ideas?

    Hmmm. Thanks for stopping by, Arnold, but I can't see anything but your name. Did you leave a response?

    I found the answer somewhere else. I needed to add "background-color" not "background."
