Blockquote and IE problems

  • Feb. 20th, 2009 at 1:18 AM
Hai guys,

I recently decided to make a custom style out of Expressive theme.  I read and studied previous entries with some of my questions that have been answered already and they were very helpful indeed.  Except for a few things I really don't know where I am doing wrong.

First thing, I am a Plus account user, and used Subway White as base theme (should I be using Unstyled instead?)

Here are my problems:

- This  blockquote script doesn't seem to be working. Really, I just want to change the font color :|

.post-asset .asset-body blockquote {
font-color: #a66520;

- Reducing the space between the entry header and time stamp.

- Lastly, the script I made doesn't seem to work on IE6 (except for the comments attributes). The layout I want looks exactly like the one viewed in Firefox.

CSS only please, thank you :D

"font-color" isn't a valid CSS specifier. You want "color". Looks like you use both in various places.

This line should change the spacing under the post title:
h2.page-header2 { margin-bottom: 5px}

I can't support IE6 because I don't have access to it anymore. I don't understand what is and isn't working in your stylesheet.

I got it fixed. My bad about the "font-color" specifier. I have been working on the script that I didn't realize I placed font-color instead of just "color".

Ah, IE6 problem, never mind that. :)

One last thing, I think I may be misunderstanding what the blockquote is. Isn't the blockquote, the parts of text or a paragraph in an entry that is indented?

"Blockquote" means text that's in a <blockquote> element. Usually it's rendered as indented, but that depends on the browser and stylesheet.

What about those indented paragraphs? IS it possible to have the font color change automatically without me having to select everything and change the color manually?

Of your public posts, only this one has indented text. It looks like you put it into an indented div manually, not by using blockquote tags. So, I can't see what other indented paragraphs you're talking about.

AH! So I have to put in the < blockquote > tags for it to work!

Yup, the script is definitely working XD

Thank you!
