    I would like to remove the quote marks from inside the quote blocks (iNove theme).

    Is CSS the place to be?
    Anyone have a fix?

    Thanks

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

    Never mind … I think I have it

    change …

    blockquote, pre {
    	background:#F4F5F7 url (img/blockquote.gif) 3px 3px no-repeat;
    	border:1px dashed #CCC;
    	padding:8px 12px 8px 36px;
    	margin:5px 0;
    }
    blockquote, pre {
    	background:#F4F5F7 3px 3px no-repeat;
    	border:1px dashed #CCC;
    	padding:2px 3px 2px 18px;
    	margin: 5px 0;
    }

    If you already have the paid CSS upgrade you can add:

    blockquote {background-image:none;}

    to your stylesheet and it will remove the picture of the quote marks. If you don’t have the CSS upgrade you’ll have to rely on inline styles which will work for now, but there is/was talk of removing this feature, so it might not work forever.

    Instead of using the <blockgquote> tag when writing your post, switch to the HTML editor and add your inline styles to a regular paragraph tag. To get it to look the same as before but without the image place your text between tags like the ones below.

    <p style="border:1px dashed #CCCCCC;margin:5px 0;padding:8px 12px 8px 36px; background-color:#F4F5F7;">
    TEXT GOES HERE
    </p>

    Ah, it seems I’m too slow – and awful at typing. Although you could get away with just specifying the background-color, you don’t need the attributes after the hex colour code.

    background-color:#F4F5F7;
