    I used the following CSS for my blockquotes. The line that puts the quotation mark before the quote (quotes: “201C””201D””2018″”2019”;) results in only a single apostrophe mark before all quotations after the first one on any post or page.
    (See for an example of what I mean. The first quote has a double quotation mark, the rest have an apostrophe.)
    How do I fix that?

    blockquote {
    font-style: normal;
    font-size: 15px!important;
    border-left: 3px solid #EEE8AA;
    margin: 1.5em 10px;
    padding: .5em 10px;
    quotes: “201C””201D””2018″”2019”;

    blockquote:before {
    color: #26251B;
    content: open-quote;
    font-size: 4em;
    line-height: .1em;
    margin-right: .25em;
    vertical-align: -.4em;

    blockquote p {
    display: inline;

    .format-aside blockquote {
    color: #f8f8f8;

    The blog I need help with is


    Today instead of a quotation mark, there is a big black ‘201C’. I’ll dump this CSS and try something else.

    Howdy @greylocks, and sorry for the delay. It looks like your issue has been resolved; do you still need assistance? Thanks!



    @greylocks: Are you all set?



    Thanks for your help. I’ve changed to a different theme for a while – will come back to Pinboard later when I have more time to trick it out the way I want it.

    greylocks – Thanks for the update. I’m going to close this thread as resolved. If you decide to activate Pinboard again in the future and need help, please open a new thread.
