  • I am using the Atahualpa theme and woudl like to change the way the blockquotes look.

    I have seen others with a super size double quote and a vertical line that runs the length of the blockquote.

    Is there an easy mod to do this. Currently the blockquotes appear in a box that I have set the options to shade.

    Thanks
    John

    Depends what you define as “easy”. 🙂

    Once you have the swooshy quotes image that you want to use, it should be just a matter of uploading that to the theme’s images folder and then making a couple of CSS changes.

    If you could post a link to a page/post in your site that uses blockquotes, I might be able to provide the CSS.

    Thanks so much for any help you can offer….here is a post with the block quote:

    Upload your quotations image to the theme’s images folder. I’d suggest something around 40px by 40px.

    Then you’ll need to to check through all of your theme options to find the section that incorporates the following CSS:

    blockquote {
    background:#9DC1D9 none repeat scroll 0 0;
    border:1px solid #E1E1E1;
    color:#555555;
    padding:1em;
    }

    Assuming that your image is called quotes.gif and is 40px wide, the new CSS should go something like:

    blockquote {
    margin:0;
    padding:0 0 0 42px;
    background:url(images/quotes.gif) no-repeat top left;
    }

    Thanks so much
