I've spoken with the Solvitor about this problem and they say that the quote function does work. But I'm still having problems with it. On the Editor the quote function works, but after saving/publishing and then viewing it (I've cleared my cache and cookies), the quote appears as normal text just like the rest of the text in the article. The text quoted should be rendered as italic in a slighter larger font, and of course, left and right padded so that it looks neat. But it isn't working for me at all.
The blog I need help with is mbukee.wordpress.com.
