    When I am writing a draft there are long vertical lines that span the length of the quote. When a post is published it changes from the vertical line on the side to quotations. How do I keep it as the vertical lines?

    Try this πŸ™‚ Add the following CSS to Dashboard > Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS:

    blockquote {
    border-left: 5px solid red;
    background-color: lightblue;
    }

    Adjust the values as required and if you don’t want to have a background color, remove that line.

    Cheers!

    Thank you! Do I have to add this before every quotation? Or does one time suffice for all? I’m sorry I’m pretty clueless when it comes to things like this as you can tell.

    You’re welcome πŸ™‚

    Just have to add it once and it will show any time a blockquote is created.

    It is telling me that’s it’s unable to update due to an invalid setting when I put this code in

    So the line is showing but so are the quotation marks as well. How do I just do the line without the quotations?

    Do you know how to do that?

    This should get rid of the quotes and add the line πŸ™‚

    blockquote:before {
    display: none;
    }

    blockquote {
    border-left: 5px solid red;
    }

    The line is there and it got rid of one quote. There is still one quote on the bottom right.

    Do you have a link to the page where that’s happening?

    Also, how would I make the wording white? I figured out how to change the background. I also appreciate all your help.

    Sorry to bother you again. I guess you haven’t had a chance to look at it. Is there a way to get rid of the quotes completely?
