Adding Blockquote

Solved Adding Blockquote

Post by canineskiba on March 14th 2013, 5:03 am

I've got my site set up for html and everything. I've put in my html/css area the code to have each post be justify.

But instead of having all the posts all fully stretched out to the width of the post due to having the code justify. I want to add blockquote into the html/css code, if that makes sense?

So that each post will be blockquote and justify so it looks clean? If anyone can help me, it'd be awesome.

This is what all posts on my forum looks like.


This is what I WANT the posts to look like on my forum. They are justifed, but they are also blockquote as well. - This post I've used the blockquote code, but I want all the posts on my forums to do this as well so we don't have to keep putting in the code to do so.

Please post the code that you used to justify all the posts.

That is what the code does, but I want to add blockquote so all posts will have blockquote and justify.

Are you sure that the code you used for justifying is correct?

Try adding this to your CSS:
Code:
.postbody {
    margin-left: 20px;
    margin-right: 20px;
}
You can change the 20's.

Yes, it is correct. The text is justifed, but it takes up the whole space of the post, but I don't want it that stretched out.

I'm playing around with the numbers, but nothing is working.

Try this:
Code:
    .postbody {
        margin-left: 20px !important;
        margin-right: 20px !important;
    }
Try adding it at the top of your CSS stylesheet.
