    Hello.

    Is there a reason why block quotes don’t seem work in a post article. I have tried the following,

    test description.

    , but the output is simply the text with no quote graphic bar.

    Was also curious why this isn’t available in the “insert shortcode” list. Thanks.

    Its inside the textblock shortcode. When you create or edit a textblock you you can choose quote function from tool bar.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but I’m not using the page builder for the post pages, so I don’t have access to the text box element. And I don’t see the text box short-code as an option from the short-code list. For some reason, the Post page is not understanding the blockquote short-code. Perhaps one of the moderators could suggest a work around.

    Hi,

    You need to use the dropcap shortcode.

    <blockquote>[av_dropcap1]"[/av_dropcap1]Click here to add your own text</blockquote>[av_dropcap1]"[/av_dropcap1]

    Or you can bring the default wordpress blockquote styling.

    blockquote {
    background: transparent url('../images/skin1/quotes.png') no-repeat top left;
    }

    You need to supply the image for quotes.png.

    Regards,

    Thanks Ismael. But I was trying to use the block quote with the vertical straight bar as shown on this page, http://www.kriesi.at/themes/enfold/blog/blog-single-author-big. Can this be done?

    Hi,

    This is the actual output for the blockquote use on the page.

    <blockquote class="first-quote">Post Formats is a theme feature introduced with Version 3.1. Post Formats can be used by a theme to customize its presentation of a post.</blockquote>

    Regards,

    Ismael
