22 Amazing Examples To Customize Blockquote Style In Blogger blogspot blog!












How can I style a blockquote in a post?




When creating a post with a blockquote, the quoted text will be indented on the right and left to set it off from other text. However, if you would like to add more style to your quotes, you can use the Edit HTML tab to make changes to edit the blockquote using inline CSS. For example, after inserting a blockquote in the Rich Text Editor, you can click on the Edit HTML tab and look for text like this:

This is some quoted text.
And edit it so that it looks like:

This is some quoted text.

This will display your blockquote with a 2 pixel wide dark-grey border, 8 pixels of padding inside the border, and a lighter grey background. Example:
This is some quoted text.

Pro subscribers have access to the feature, which allows you to easily make stylesheet changes for your entire weblog. This will allow you to edit the display of your blockquotes without editing the HTML of the post each time you include a quote. For the same results as above, you would add the following in Weblogs > Edit Design > Custom CSS:
blockquote { border: 2px solid #666; padding: 10px; background-color: #ccc; }
If your blog is using Advanced Templates, you would add the above code to the Stylesheet template. If you would like more information on all the possibilities of styling elements with CSS, there is a useful tutorial here.

The Monkey Man Blockquote!!! Once you get an idea on how to use these blockquotes then you can create artistic and some funny blockquotes like the one below,
Blockquote Code:
.post blockquote{ margin : 0 35px; padding: 80px 0px 0px 0px; background : #E6F1FA url(http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_7wsQzULWIwo/Swb5J-uBKiI/AAAAAAAACPs/81Ja4qFVyGc/s400/head2.gif) no-repeat top; font: normal 1em "comic sans ms", Helvetica, verdana; color : #666; } .post blockquote div{ background : #E6F1FA url(http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_7wsQzULWIwo/Swb5j3ME4gI/AAAAAAAACP0/1sQjocgjdK0/s400/head-bottom3.gif) no-repeat bottom; padding-bottom: 50px; } .post blockquote p { margin: 0; padding: 20px; }


couple of ways to dress up the lowly blockquote
Blockquote Code:
.post blockquote { margin:1em 20px; } .post blockquote p { margin:.75em 0; } blockquote { background:#EFEFF7; }


big chunky quotation mark blockquote
Blockquote Code:
blockquote { background-position:-10px -7px; border: 1px dashed #FFC600; margin: 20px 10; padding: 0 20px 0 50px; background: url("http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_jM8-wHc3NKY/TR3MwDiXB1I/AAAAAAAAAQo/Fi8TGwkSRNQ/s1600/quote.png") 5% no-repeat #FFF8DD; }


Here is one more. I use it on Buttermilk Clouds. It is simple in a fancy way. I'm changing the color here so you can see a variety. The great thing about this blockquote is you don't need an image to save and upload. It is all done with smoke and mirrors!
Blockquote Code:
blockquote{ background-color: transparent; border-top: 3px double #DC143C; border-bottom: 3px double #DC143C; padding: 5px; font-style: oblique; font-size: 1em; margin-left: 5%; margin-right: 5%; }
If you want a different color, find one on this fantastic color chart then put that color code in place of #DC143C in the code above.
