    Hi WordPress staff,

    I notice in Elemin there is a block quote function while posting that indents and italicizes, however, I was hoping to learn to block quote in like a rectangular box like thingy with a highlighted color and no italics (just looks more professional). Also, I have the CSS upgrade.

    If you want a screenshot, you can visit (where i am referring to the first block quote in the post)

    Thanks a ton!

    The blog I need help with is

    Om Kicau

    Try it:

    .entry-content blockquote {

    font-style: normal;

    background: #B7DEE7;

    border: 1px solid #06A2CB;

    margin-right: 15px;

    font-weight: bold;

    font-size: 15px;


    .entry-content blockquote p {

    color: #1B6D81;



    Adjust the font-size, font color, border size to the one you want.

    Howdy @nkygyatso! Just checking in. Were you able to get @duto’s solution to work?



    I don’t think its working, or I’m quite a Noob in CSS as well, so, perhaps I am not inputting it correctly in the post’s CSS?

    Hmm, are you adding it to your Custom CSS panel? I don’t see it there:



    oh! I am confused. should i input the code in the Custom CSS Panel, or for the CSS while writing a new post?


    Caroline Moore

    Into the Custom CSS panel. :)



    Woah! thanks Dutto and sixhours that works :)
