    Hi Michael, I hope you are well.

    After applying the last couple of updates to this plugin, the formatting of the quote author has gotten a bit out of whack. Previously the author name was displayed right aligned, preceded by a hyphen. Now the author is left aligned with a hyphen on the far right.

    Could you take a look and give some clues where to begin? I have already enabled q-tags.

    Too much fun…

    Can you double-check your latest Testimonials Widget version? I think you're on 2.11.x than 2.11.2.

    Otherwise, I don't see a clear reason yet why the CSS is funky. Test systems show fine and debugging doesn't give much of a clue.

    Yeah, no... I am on 2.11.2

    I have this in my custom includes from the earlier install, maybe that is causing the conflict?

    #header-widgets {width:280px;padding-top:15px;}
    .testimonialswidget_testimonial q {
    quotes: none; color: #617284; font-style: italic; font-size: 110%; font-weight:normal;
    }
    blockquote { margin: auto; }

    .testimonialswidget_testimonial .testimonialswidget_open_quote:before,
    .testimonialswidget_testimonial .testimonialswidget_close_quote:after {
    content: none;
    }

    To get rid of the double quoting, remove the blockquote tags you have around content in the testimonials.

    For the author alignment, that's theme related, but try the fix below.

    .testimonialswidget_testimonial .author { float: none; }

    Thank you Michael.

    I do not have any blockquote tags around my individual testimonials.

    As for the author alignment and the hanging hyphen, I tried entering the fix you provided into my custom includes and there was no change.

    Where's the CSS edits in http://www.bpdglobal.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/suffusion/custom-styles.css?

    A testimonial "If only his mind were as easy to fix as his body." by Han Nolan and others, have blockquote around the text and that provided by testimonials widget.

    Can you please check your testimonials again?

    I got rid of the double quote by enabling the "Use q tag" setting in the widget. I don't have a clue what that means. I would still love to get rid of the hanging hyphen to the right of the testimonial author.

    The Suffusion theme has a "custom incudes" section in the theme settings. In there I have the following CSS modifications for the Testimonial plugin.

    .testimonialswidget_testimonial q {
    quotes: none; color: #617284; font-style: italic; font-size: 110%; font-weight:normal;
    }

    blockquote { margin: auto; }

    .testimonialswidget_testimonial .testimonialswidget_open_quote:before,
    .testimonialswidget_testimonial .testimonialswidget_close_quote:after {
    content: none;
    .testimonialswidget_testimonial .author { float: none; }

    You were absolutely correct, there was a blockquote tag on that quote....

    Now I am confused as to why some have it and why some don't

    Please recheck your CSS. There's no closing } after content:none;.

    Yup, you were right again, it is back to normal and I am very appreciative for the help you have provided this lowly ingrate (me) :-) !

    My sincerest thanks!
