Splendio Blockquote Not Working

    In creating a test page to experiment with the different formats of the text in the Splendio theme, I found that the blockquote function didn't make the text into a paragraph, just one long line off the side of the page. It appears this way in Chrome and Firefox.

    The blog I need help with is testingwithjazz.wordpress.com.

  2. Can you give us a link to where that is happening so that we can look at the code?

  3. If you look at the demo site, http://splendiodemo.wordpress.com/html-elements/ , you will see the blockquote is working which would lead me to believe there is an issue with coding in your test such as a non-breaking space between all of the single words.

    Here is the test page: http://testingwithjazz.wordpress.com/2012/03/19/hello-world/

    Below is a copy of the code from the HTML edit view of the page:

    Regular font. Regular font. Regular font. Regular font. Regular font. Regular font. Regular font. Regular font. Regular font. Regular font. Regular font. Regular font. Regular font. Regular font. Regular font. Regular font. Regular font. Regular font.</p> <p><em>Italics</em></p> <p><strong>Bold</strong></p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Underline</span></p> <p><del>Strikethrough</del></p> <p>dsfsdf</p> <blockquote><p>Blockquote blockquote blockquote blockquote blockquote blockquote blockquote blockquote blockquote blockquote blockquote blockquote blockquote blockquote blockquote blockquote blockquote blockquote</p></blockquote> <p>dsdfsd</p> <p><a href="http://www.google.com">Link</a></p> <ul> <li>Bullet list 1 Bullet list 1 Bullet list 1 Bullet list 1 Bullet list 1 Bullet list 1 Bullet list 1 Bullet list 1 Bullet list 1 Bullet list 1 Bullet list 1 Bullet list 1</li> <li>Bullet list 2</li> </ul> <ol> <li>Numbered list 1</li> <li>Numbered list 2</li> </ol> <p><!--more--></p> <p>More stuff

    Well, that copy/paste didn't look as planned, sorry about that. But the link is above for the page.

    After trying a few other things, it seems like you are correct and the spaces became non-breaking, even without appearing as such in the HTML editor or page source. It appears to have been because I copy/pasted "Blockquote " (with space on the end) multiple times to fill as a placeholder while editing in Visual mode. The below test page shows four examples of placeholders:

    http://testingwithjazz.wordpress.com/2012/03/23/blockquote-test-3/

    1) "Blockquote " copy/pasted multiple times while editing in Visual
    2) "Blockquote 2 " copy/pasted multiple times while editing in Visual
    3) each instance of "Blockquote " handtyped while editing in Visual
    4) "Blockquote " copy/pasted multiple times while editing in HTML

    2, 3 and 4 worked just fine, but something in 1 ended up thinking it was done with non-breaking spaces. I should be fine going forward, as I'll likely not be making that sort of block of text again.

    A strange occurrence, for sure. I will mark this as resolved tomorrow, if there's nothing else thought to be needed for this.
