  • use the b-quote button for a dirty solution.

    When I do it the entire paragraph goes italics and all of the lines are indented and you get the little blue bar. Maybe I’m doing it wrong, but I put the b-quote button on the beginning and end of the paragraph.

    You’re doing it right. The italics and blue border are due to the css set up for blockquote in your theme. Look in the theme’s style.css for the following:

    blockquote {
    padding: 3px;
    border-left: 3px solid #24527B;
    font-family: "Georgia", "Arial", sans-serif;
    font-style: italic;
    }

    You can remove the lines for font-style and border-left properties to provide a simpler “indented” text block.

    for indentation, use the css text-indent style. It indents the first line of a paragraph, not the entire thing. Something like:

    p { text-indent: 2em }

    Should work well

    Learn something new every day: I didn’t know that a change in the style.css file would change the quicktags stuff. That’s cool! Thanks Kaf!

    Hmm. I don’t know if it’s exactly like that (change css ==> changes quicktag “stuff”). The quicktags just insert html tags in a… quick way 🙂 So, the stylesheet has an effect on the html tags applied.

    Heh. Well, that was more or less what I meant….
