Font Color, Link Color, Blockquotes

  • Feb. 16th, 2007 at 9:34 AM
Hey guys, I have searched this community high and low and I'm not finding the answers to the questions I desperately need answered! (Ok, not desperately, but you know...) I am using the DJ Girl Expressive theme, and I wanted to do the following things:

- Center my user pic on the sidebar
- Change the links to bold
- Make the body text smaller
- Make the links (Leave comment etc) smaller
- Make the blockquotes have a light grey background
- Make the comment text smaller
- Put a separator between entries
- Justify entry text

Should be pretty easy, but it's Friday, and I'm dumb. <3 Thanks guys!


/* resize entire layout-------------------------------------------------- */
#alpha { width: 510px;}
#container-inner, #header-inner { width: 700px;}
.layout-tw #alpha-inner { width: 430px;}

The blockquote CSS wasn't working? It worked for me. For the comments part, you have a comma in the selector that shouldn't be there. For entry separator, you can either put some HTML in the Custom Options->Entry Footer HTML box, or style .asset-footer{}.
.asset-body { text-align: justify; } for the last one.
The user-pic centering could be tricky, because IE and FF have differing methods of interpreting the CSS. So far nothing I've tried has worked in IE.

I don't know why the blockquote isn't working except maybe the little quotes it puts is a background, and how would I remove that?>

Ah, OK. I couldn't see any of your locked entries with a blockquote to know. Also, this theme uses a weird selector for the <blockquote>. Try this:
.post-asset .asset-body blockquote {
    padding: 10px;
    font-size: 11px;
    background-image: none;
    background-color:#CDC1C5;
}

Ohhhhh, that kinda worked. But it made the background the width of the post. (You can view my entries now)

You are my hero for helping me with this. I could buy you a drink if you wanted! :P

Is there a way to indent the blockquote from the rest of the post? Like a tab function in CSS?

When I do "text-indent: 20px" it only indents the first line. Ugh!

Nevermind, I cheated and did this:

.post-asset .asset-body blockquote {
padding: 5px;
font-size: 11px;
background-image: none;
background-color: #EBEBEB;
border: 25px solid #FFFFFF;
}

Whoa, deluged! ;) If you just want to indent it from the left side, take out the padding and border and use margin-left: xxxpx;.

Drinks are always fine, and I'm actually in your neighborhood on occasion! =P

Haha, or I could do that.

As you can tell, it's slow at work today.

Any time you're in the neighborhood, just shoot me a comment or something. I'm always up for going out :D

i was wondering whether it was possible to automatically add message that you are replying to as a "quote" like in the private messages...

WTF, why did this come to me?

No, LiveJournal does not offer a "quote reply" function like some message boards do, nor am I aware of a way to do it through styles.

Thank you, I didn't think so.
