Rounded Blockquotes? (8 posts)

    I am what you might call a coding idiot. Okay, a coding moron will also work. Anyway, I am really trying to find a way to change my css blockquote to be rounded. Currently, it looks like this:
    ->blockquote {background: #E3F5FE url(images/blockquote.png) no-repeat bottom left;
    padding: 5px 20px 30px 20px;
    margin: 1em;
    }

    You can see my site to see what this looks like in action. I ripped it from another theme. Anyway, I'd love to have a rounded wordbubble instead of a square. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Oh, yeah, my site is monkeypup.org. Thanks!

    Those links seem like what I want, but I'm too much of an idiot to incorporate it... I'm hoping some nice soul wants to basically tell me:
    "Hey, you idiot, change your blockquote css entry to: -->this."
    But I'll keep messing around on my own with it in the meantime.
    Thanks!

    Hi!

    My theme is default (Kubrick) and i´d like to use another blockquote, that is
    with an image, but it doesn´t work in my style.css
    Oh, it works, but too well, if i put this code to replace the original
    in my style.css, the result is MANY EMPTY QUOTES
    and then the sixth or so is a right one.
    What i do wrong? Is this the code i should add?
    And whereto in my style.css ?
    TIA!

    1. (quote)

    blockquote{
    background: #EEE url(img/blockquote.png) no-repeat bottom left;
    padding: 10px;
    padding-bottom: 40px;
    margin: 1em;
    }

    2. my style.css (default Kubrick -one without modifications)

    You know I was going to answer this until I started to scroll through all that code.

    Why on earth did you post the entire stylesheet when your concern only dealt with the blockquote section?
