Blockquote + Quote Tweak?

Post by ℋunni on October 5th 2011, 9:46 am

Site: http://paperthin-hymn.nstars.org/

Question !
So I understand that there is a difference between <blockquote*></blockquote*> and [quote*][/quote*]. Whenever I code the former, however, it physically appears identical to the latter. I'd like it so all <blockquote*></blockquote*> is pad a set amount of pixels (15px?), and for [quote*][/quote*] to actually quote another member, etc. I'm not sure if I explained all of this correctly.

I'd also like the change the appearance of the [quote*][/quote*] box as I find it unattractive. Preferably something like how the open spoiler box on this site appears.

Well <blockquote> is html and [quote] is BBcode.
Blockquote can surely be defined in the CSS;
blockquote { styling }

Here is one way to manage blockquotes. You can have multiple, different looking blockquotes by changing the quote number.

Put this code in your CSS:
Code:
blockquote.quote1 {
    color:#422b2b;
    font-family:verdana;
    font-size:1.0em;
    font-weight:lighter;
    font-style:normal;
    text-decoration: none !important;
  padding: 8px;
  background-color: #faebbc;
  border-top: 1px solid #e1cc89;
  border-bottom: 4px solid #45341f;
  border-right: 4px solid #45341f;
  margin: 5px;
background-image: url(http://i47.servimg.com/u/f47/14/97/16/85/body-b10.png);
background-position: top left;
background-repeat:repeat;
  text-indent: 23px;
border-radius: 10px;
-webkit-border-radius: 10px;
-moz-border-radius: 10px;
-o-border-radius: 10px;
-khtml-border-radius: 10px;
  }

Type this code in your post:
Code:
<blockquote class="quote1">test text</blockquote>

You will get a blockquote that looks like this:


By having quote1, quote2, quote3, etc, you can have a bunch of different looks.

Oh, that's pretty neat boffer!
I'm sure to use that in the near future <3

Though, what I really want is for the default blockquote to simply blockquote something (which is just padding it a certain manner.)

So you want to edit the default quote of the forum right?
The default quoteblock in the forum should be this in the css
Code:

.postmain blockquote
