Blockquote-ish.. not sure what its called. Wrap text around text?

  1. Hi,

    I'm very new to this and I know very little coding etc but would love to learn...
    Anyway, my issue at the moment is placing a quote in a text box to the right of the main body, with text wrapped around it... is this possible on all themes or just limited ones? and if so, how do I do it/find out if it is possible with each theme? I'm not sure what it's even called, I've had a look through the FAQs on how to edit the design/layout of blockquotes but unfortunately I've not managed to get anywhere with it.

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    An example could be this... BBC page where Gary Caldwell has a quote halfway down the text... do you know what i mean?

    Thank you again

  2. It's possible on all themes, but it needs some coding in the HTML editor.

    If you like the default look of blockquotes in Mystique, use this:

    <blockquote style="width:40%;float:right;margin:0 0 0 24px;">

    You can change the 40% to adjust the relative width of the quote box, and you can change the 24px to adjust the space between the regular text and the left side of the box.

    If you don't like the default look of bqs in Mystique, tell us how exactly you'd like your bqs to be.

    Thank you!!!
