  • Resolved David Latapie


    I want to use an Opera’s proprietary property:


    This Opera CSS linking extensions makes clickable an element with a “cite” attribute (usually “q” ou “blockquote”). (source)

    Sadly, the CSS Editor in WordPress 3.4.2. with the TwentyTwelve theme discards it. I could create a child theme, but I’d rather avoid it and stick with the CSS editor. Fixing this seems a cleaner approach to me.

    Any input?

  • So are you modifying theme files in Twentytwelve?

    No, I use the “modify CSS” in Appearance.

    There isn’t a “modify CSS” option in Appearance menu when using Twenty Twelve on a self-hosted WP site. Are you using a custom css plugin perhaps?

    Another similar (but not identical because it is not a proprietary extension) issue:

    In Appearance > Modify CSS, paste this:

    content: attr(title)”\a”attr(cite);

    “\a” will become “a”. “\a” is CSS code for carriage return. Barring the \a prevents carriage return to be generated by CSS.

    Ouch, you are right, this was a plugin 🙁

    Sorry to have bothered the board. I know have to find out which plugin it was…

    Thank you for the help!

    Just an addition: the bugs are not from WordPress but from Jetpack. This is the plugin responsible for the buggy “modify CSS” feature.
