I'd like to get rid of the shaded background for blockquote in PlatformPro and perhaps put a left border in there instead. But I can't work out the CSS - saw this advice for another theme here but it does nothing. blockquote { background:none repeat scroll 0 0 #eee; border:1px solid #ddd;} I see you can change the background colour elsewhere in the options. But I don't want to do it for anything but blockquotes.

Add your code to the base.css file instead. (Also note that the blockquote appearance will not appear in a post if it's in excerpt format.)

Sorry - don't really understand. I thought we were supposed to deal with css modifications by pasting them into the Platform interface Custom Code, not through the css file directly because that would foul things up on an upgrade. Are you suggesting I change the actual css file?

You can add the CSS to the Custom Code area or the base.css file. If you have the child theme (PlatformBase) activated, you can go to the Appearance > Editor and the base.css file is the first thing that pops up.
