As you can see, the white quote colour just DOES NOT look good. I've looked through all of the display options, tried a few CSS codes and yet I can't seem to get rid of that blinding white! Any help?

(I use phpBB3)

Try this: Edit color and submit to your css
Code:
blockquote { background: lightgreen }

Works great! I just don't like the colour >.<

Will Dark blue work?

EDIT: Also this only works for the FIRST quote, how do I get it for all the others as well?

EDIT 2: Also, it's that white that I want to get rid of, when there's a quote within a quote. Is there a way to remove quoted quotes from the text with a special CSS code?

blockquote {
        margin: 1em 1px 1em 25px;
        padding: 5px;
        background: #2c2c3c url("http://illiweb.com/fa/prosilver/quote.gif") 6px 8px no-repeat;
        border: 1px solid #DBDBCE;
        font-size: 0.95em;
        margin: 1em 1px 1em 25px;
        overflow: hidden;
        }
blockquote div {
        margin-left: 20px;
        }
blockquote blockquote {
        background-color: #EFEED9;
        font-size: 1em;
        margin: 0.5em 1px 0pt 15px;
        }
blockquote blockquote blockquote {
        background-color: #2c2c3c;
        }
blockquote cite {
        font-style: normal;
        font-weight: bold;
        display: block;
        font-size: 0.9em;
        }
blockquote cite cite {
        font-size: 1em;
        }
blockquote.uncited {
        padding-top: 25px;
        }
ul      {
        list-style-type: none;
        }
ul.ul-icons {
        float: left;margin: 0 10px;
        }
* html table, * html select, * html input
        { font-size: 100%;
        }
* html hr { margin: 0;
        }

I know mentioned "edit colour" just wanted to know if Navy Blue worked Razz

For some reason it doesn't seem to work. Take a look:

EDIT: Oh I see what you did. The code works once but once you start into quoting quotes that quote another quote (confusing!) it does the same thing. Is it possible to do it an infinite amount of times?

I didn't change anything. (remove the 1st css edit I posted)
That's a copy of your css... edit any of the colors to your liking.

I'm sort of confused (I'm no good with CSS) but I'll monkey around with it and see if it works Razz

AH, I got it to work! But a quick question, where did you find that CSS code? I'd like to know as there are a few other things I'd like to toy with as well.

EDIT: Nevermind, found the answer. Thankyou so much for all the help Very Happy
