Blockquotes

Recommended Posts

Love the them and all that, but want to do a couple of changes to the blockquote. First, how do you take off the italics? They're hard to read. Second, is there any way to move the right margin in a little? The words go all the way to the border and it'd look better with some white space there.

Hi, To remove italic font try adding to Custom CSS code field:

.hentry blockquote {font-style:normal;}

Thanks for the tip. I'd still like to know how to add a margin in on the right like it has on the left.

If you search for the `.hentry blockquote` rule in the style.css just delete one of the 0 from the margin rule. So it looks like this margin:0 1.5em;

This might be asking too much, but is there any way to make the blockquotes look a little more like the sidebar's border? Rounded corners and then add a slight grey background?

cmunns, that bit of code messes up the blockquote with the line below it.

I think this is what you're looking for: ` .hentry blockquote { -moz-border-radius:5px 5px 5px 5px; font-size:13px; font-style:italic; margin:1.5em 40px 1.5em 1.5em; padding:10px; -moz-border-radius: 5px; -khtml-border-radius: 5px; -webkit-border-radius: 5px; border-radius: 5px; } `
