Block-quote missing quotation graphic

  • There is a problem with your stylesheet which cannot point to the quotation image or you miss the background-image rule.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Any idea where this shows up in the style-sheet? I don’t see it. The stylesheet, etc are set by the theme, and I’ve never changed them. Has this happened on other sites using the-erudite theme?

    An example URL is always helpful. The quotation “image” is a CSS pseudo-element, which IE 6 & 7 don’t support, so it might be that you’re viewing in one of those browsers.

    Matt, thanks for the suggestion, here’s an example URL http://www.carlboettiger.info/archives/1788

    You’ll note the quotes are indented but lack that nice large quotation mark. I am viewing in firefox 3.6.18 & chromium 12.0.742.112 on a ubuntu 10.04 box.

    I’m guessing you’re running WP Minify, or possibly using W3 Total Cache’s minify. Whichever script you’re using, it’s not that smart. It’s grabbing The Erudite’s JS file, which depends on jQuery, and inserting it before jQuery is included, producing an error. The Erudite uses JS to generate the quote graphics when JS is enabled in order to compensate for the fact that CSS pseudo-elements are not handled consistently across browsers.

    You’ll need to disable your minification plugin or somehow modify its settings to include things in the right order.

    Hi Matt,

    Many thanks for figuring that one out.
