Format Block Quote? (5 posts)

    Can the block quote be formatted in different ways? My site was just modified, the old way just indented. The new way draws a vertical line. Any idea how to change it back?

    Yup, in your CSS just use this formula:
    blockquote {
    formatting stuff here ending each with ;
    }

    Thanks for the reply, unfortunately I'm not sure exactly what you said. Could you provide the specifics to just indent without the vertical bar?

    as above finde the blockquote in the CSS, then remove everything between the curly brackets and replace it with text-indent: 30px or something to that effect.

    Sorry, CSS is the stylesheet in your theme, I should have been more specific and not assumed you'd know what I meant. Anyway, here's a sample of what you wanted - I think - you can also make a graphic to create your bars.

    blockquote {
    font-size : 100%;
    padding-left : 20px;
    padding-right : 20px;
    margin-top : 0px;
    border-left : 1px solid #000;
    border-right : 1px solid #000;
    }

    Obviously that'll give you black bars on both sides and the text'll indent 20px on both sides...but do you get the idea?
