    Last CSS questions, I think :)

    I saw a Child Theme for TwentyEleven called Hum. It’s comprised solely of CSS tweaks. The guy who created it is using it for his site currently:

    I like the Child Theme well enough, but I’m too in love with my seamless background to use it ;) I do have a couple questions, though, for starters, how can I make my quotes like his quotes? (Large, pretty, proper Tumblr-ish attribution, no title…) See here:

    And how do I remove the title from Image posts as well?

    Finally, if I ultimately decide that I want to go with the showcase template, is it possible to have the posts display as they would without showcase (fully, sans showcase sidebar)?

    I do like showcase because of the ability to add a brief note at the top and the featured posts but I’ve never been a fan of the showcase sidebar, I really like my post formats… and I like them fully visible. :)


    The blog I need help with is


    You can use the same CSS he does. Here’s a copy of the part that styles posts that are setup with the “Quote” format:

    .format-quote blockquote {
    	font-family: "Baskerville", "Baskerville Old Face", "Hoefler Text", "Garamond", "Palatino", "URW Palladio L", "Book Antiqua", Georgia, serif;
    	color: #333;
    	font-size: 2.2em;
    	line-height: 1.4em;
    .format-quote blockquote p {
    	margin-bottom: 0.75em;
    .format-quote cite {
    	display: block;
    	text-align: right;
    	margin: 1em 0 0;
    	color: #999;
    	font-size: 12px;
    	letter-spacing: 0.3em;
    	word-spacing: 0.2em;
    	line-height: 2.6em;
    	text-transform: uppercase;
    	font-style: normal;
