Disable or move quote feature?

  • I love this theme, I’ve customized it to my liking and it looks great.

    How would I disable the quote feature? My users don’t like how it covers the text of a comment. A lot of people (myself included), read text online and follow it with my cursor sometimes. So it’s a little distracting. And if there is a link in the comment, it covers it, then I have to wait for it to fade away.

    Or make it possible to move it to the comment header or something?

    Side note, I’ve tried some plugins so users can edit there own comments. But the quote feature copies the plugin text as well.

    Try editing style.css:

    blockquote {
    background:transparent url(images/blockquote.png) no-repeat left top;
    color:#939494;
    font-style:italic;
    margin:10px 65px 10px 10px;
    padding:20px 20px 10px 10px;
    }

    and removing background:transparent url(images/blockquote.png) no-repeat left top;

    It still shows up. But I found that this part of the CSS displays the image:

    span.quote a span{ background: transparent url(images/button-quote.png) no-repeat left top; }

    So I changed that to:
    span.quote a span{ background: none; }

    Which does remove the image. But the quote box still shows up, now with no background image. The hunt continues.

    span.quote{
     display: none !important;
    }

    That did it, thanks!
    How would I move it to the comment header instead, like on your site?

    I’m actually trying to get this plugin to work:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/quote-comments/

    But it only shows up if I remove this code from the CSS:

    span.quote{
    display: none !important;
    }

    When it does show up, it shows the theme quote feature and the plugin quote feature at the same time.

    I still want a quote feature, and this plugin is awesome. So I want to use it.

    Okay I’m the developer of the “Quote Comments” plugin, and I’m kinda stumped as to what’s the problem here.

    Are you trying to use the quote comments plugin, with a theme that already has a similar feature?

    If so, what theme is that, and could we possibly get a link?

    Also, can’t the quote feature in the theme be turned off?

    If it is indeed a plugin/theme conflict, I honestly think its an issue with the theme, not the plugin, and the most productive way to go about things would be to add a theme option to let you disable the theme quote feature.

    Yes, the theme does come with a quote feature, but it pops up over the text. I like your way more. No you can’t disable the quote feature. But I did hide it with that CSS above.

    No offense to the theme creator. I personally don’t mind it, but some of my users don’t. I really like the theme, my users LOVE it too.

    Here is a link to the theme – http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/fusion

    problem is a conflict between the theme’s js quote function and the plugin quote function. both have the same name πŸ™‚

    so just change quote with fusion_quote or something..

    I changed this in the fusion.js file

    function quote(authorId, commentId, commentBodyId, commentBox) {

    to this:

    function quote_fusion(authorId, commentId, commentBodyId, commentBox) {

    Does the same thing πŸ™
