How To Beautify Blockquote

Written by : Precious Pinkest | 11:58:00 AM | 0


A blockquote is a XHTML tag which is purposely used element in an article. The basic usage of blockquote in an article is when an author wants to post a thought,or a long piece of sentence from another resources or another author.

In the spirit of making a better Blockquote is more beautiful here are a few ways blockquote dress up the lowly. Mine is very simple for a reason. (not mean I do not want a beautiful and wonderful, but it would only confuse my readers blockquote). That way my readers can see the code that need to be copied at a glance ... No guessing needed. I chose a soft color code for codes to make you mad, and softpink is my way of offsetting any madness! .. hehehe ..

Ok, how easy..Lets started..

1. Dashboard / Layout / Edit HTML / Download Full Template

(important as a backup!)

2. Do tick Expand Widget Templates

3. Find code. post blockquote {
(press Ctrl + f to facilitate the search)

You have found the code?

4. Replace the code with the code below shown

This one sample code of my blockquote:
