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.

place this in your css, change the color to what you want.
I just tested with a light blue on my test forum.

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!
