    Depending on your theme, you could add *something like*

    .comment-content:before {
    	content: open-quote;
    }
    
    .comment-content:after {
    	content: close-quote;
    }

    what code are you using to output the comments?

    what theme are you using?

    can you post a link to your site?

    alchymyth-

    its a custom theme that ive been developing, its based on the amber weinberg template hijinx, how ever its been updated since so its probally not the same http://www.amberweinberg.com/hijinks-a-wordpress-basic-framework/

    unfortunatly im not aloud to post a link to the site but to out put the comments im using

    <?php if ( have_comments() ) : ?>
    	<h3 id="comments"><?php comments_number('No Comments', 'One Comment', '% Comments' );?></h3>
    
    	<ol class="commentlist">
    	<?php wp_list_comments('avatar_size=60'); ?>
    	</ol>

    is there anything else that might help?

    cubecolor- the comments are outputted using the p tag so would i use something like this?

    .comment-content p:before {
    content: open-quote;
    }

    .comment-content p:after {
    content: close-quote;
    }

    cheers guys 🙂
