I mean blockquote, which is an indentation with margins on both sides of the words. So like a text doesn't fill the entire row, you know?

No, I don't have a screenshot. But is there a way to change the yellow backtground to just black, and get rid of the quotes, so that it just has the text in the quote.

It will have to be done is css.
what do you want as the quote image and what background colors.

remeber you can change the color for one background in your colors list, any other colors witll have to be done with css.
When i get home i can take a look on my test forum, I just did this for phpbb3 forum but will be different for phpbb2.

If your quoting someone else post, then click on the quote option for the post.
If your creating your own post then you can click on the bbcode quote tags or just add them in yourself Smile
