    Can one of the CSS wizards on here tell me why blockquote won't work on my site?
    it shows it works in visual and HTML mode on a post, when when previewed, it doesn't. driving me wacko!

    Your theme has a reset.css stylesheet which is affecting the way blockquotes are styled.

    To get them working again you'll have to either remove the blockquote entry from the reset.css or add your own styles for blockquotes into your style.css stylesheet.

    Ok...i removed it from reset.css and nothing changed. I added it in to the style.css and nothing changed. ok, technically i don't have a style.css because the theme comes in 7 colors, so it's called red.css..

    blockquote {
     border : 2px solid #000;
     width: 200px;
     float: right;
     margin: 0px;
     padding: 10px;
     background-color: #ccc;
     quotes: "\201C" "\201D";
     blockquote:before { content: open-quote; font-weight: bold; }
     blockquote:after { content: close-quote; font-weight: bold; }

    am i just putting it in the wrong spot? or remove from reset AND add into red.css?

    thanks for any help 12foot!

    No, your CSS looks good. All the blockquote stuff is in there and should be working. However, I can't see any actual blockquotes on any of your pages.

    I assume you wanted them on the Reviews page but that's all just <span> and <h3> tags.

    oh! sorry, i'm just working on a test page at the moment (non-published) but when i look at the preview it doesn't show an indent at all...the back pages another lady did, and she had to use some "creative coding" because the blockquote didn't work....i'm trying to figure out why for any of the new posts, because it's driving her crazy (henceforth driving me crazy) =)
    it shouldn't matter if i publish the page should it? it should show blockquote in preview...and it doesn't show any indent, color or quotes at all...
    would it help if i posted it live?

    ok...so i changed the blockquote code in 3 different css files and now it works (mostly)
    weirdest thing i've ever seen.
    thanks 12foot for your help in identifying the files.
