Solved Background Color of Quote in Quote

Post by runawayhorses on May 16th 2012, 8:31 pm

In this screenshot you will see a post being quoted that quoted someone else, a quote in a quote. The white looking color is the second quote and I want to change that background to something darker. In the AP>>Display>>Colors>> I have the background set of the quote color and that is the color I want for that, but where do I set the color for a quote in quotes background color like in this picture below?

I didn't save it as a post that is an example of what it would look like if I posted it. That is a "Preview" post.

Well I don't have any line colors set like forum line and row line they are both empty. I have no idea why this that way. I don't have that yellow color that I'm aware of anywhere. Yes Kirk if you can figure that out I would appreciate it, I didn't know it was like that until just now. This is a relatively new theme for me and I'm ironing out the details. I'd like to get that fixed soon as possible you can't even read it.

Code:

blockquote blockquote {
    background-color: #D6FFF6;
    font-size: 1em;
    margin: 0.5em 1px 0 15px;

Yes that worked! I didn't test it for more than 2 quotes but hopefully it will just keep alternating colors. I think it will. thanks Kirk.. Smile

No prob.

you may even be able to add more colors,
I dint test it but might work by doing something like this.

Code:
blockquote blockquote {
    background-color: #D6FFF6;
    font-size: 1em;
    margin: 0.5em 1px 0 15px;
}

blockquote blockquote blockquote {
    background-color: #D6FFF6;
    font-size: 1em;
    margin: 0.5em 1px 0 15px;
}

blockquote blockquote blockquote blockquote {
    background-color: #D6FFF6;
    font-size: 1em;
    margin: 0.5em 1px 0 15px;
}

Know what i mean? like i said not sure if it will work, but you can try if you want.
Other hen that i will mark this solved and archive Smile

Info added

LOL that dose work.
Preview here 5 colors.

seems like a little much, just thought it would be cool to try Smile
But you get the idea, just add a new blockquote to the line if a new one. lol

Code:
blockquote blockquote {
    background-color: #D6FFF6;
    font-size: 1em;
    margin: 0.5em 1px 0 15px;
}

blockquote blockquote blockquote {
    background-color: #F1F2BA;
    font-size: 1em;
    margin: 0.5em 1px 0 15px;
}

blockquote blockquote blockquote blockquote {
    background-color: #D9A5FA;
    font-size: 1em;
    margin: 0.5em 1px 0 15px;
}

blockquote blockquote blockquote blockquote blockquote {
    background-color: #B6FFB5;
    font-size: 1em;
    margin: 0.5em 1px 0 15px;
}

OK go ahead and archive it I'll mark it solved now. If I find out later its not alternating quote background colors I'll try that code out and see what happens. thanks again.

Edit:

Oh yeah the color does work I just seen your test page. Excellent!
