One more problem... - SOLVED

  • Oct. 12th, 2010 at 12:33 PM
Just when I think I have everything solved, I find another issue.

I'm trying to fix my blockquote coding from the usual Carson Red blockquote set-up to something more sleek. I'm just looking for a centered text area with a 2px dashed border (color #B40404) and a tinted background (color #E6E6E6). I've looked at the original CSS and tried to tweak it on my own, but when I start the blockquote after the first few sentences, there's still blockquote text hanging underneath the userpic.

The only code I added is the one to remove the pre-coded background image (red horizontal dashes going down the left side the whole length of the blockquote).

Please help! If anyone needs a visual of what I'm asking for, please let me know.

SOLUTION (as of 11/23/10)

I'm not sure if this will work for EVERY Expressive or Mixit layout, but this is the code I used.

blockquote {
    margin-left: 5px;
    background-img: none;
    padding: 5px;
    margin: 5px 105px;
    border: 2px dashed #81BEF7;
    text-align: center;

.asset-content blockquote {
    background-image: none;
    padding-left: 5px;

This is how I got it to look exactly as it does in my journal, which is what I was looking for. I had to sift through the original CSS coding for the layout as LiveJournal has it set up, but I found what I needed to correct. I highly recommend some kind of Web Developer tool through Firefox if you want to do this on your own.

Can you point to an entry where this is happening?

Sure. I removed all the codes I tried to add so it's back to the default.

Here's an entry where the red dash line goes behind the userpic. What I want to do is center the blockquote, and add a colored border around it with a very light gray background to the blockquote itself. Do you know what I mean?

Sorry I took so long to get back to you... looks like you changed to Flexible Squares. Still want me to take a look?

I just changed it back to Carson if you wanna take a look again. I changed it to Carson Blue, so the dashes are black instead of red.

... I'm guessing you fixed it yourself, then?
