    Hello, if someone can help me figure out how to change the bbpress blockquote text color I would appreciate it. Currently it is yellow (see attachment)…

    put this in the custom css part of your theme

    blockquote {
    	color: blue;
    }

    Thank you for the response. I added the custom css as you suggested, but text is still yellow.

    suspect it requires me to be logged in ?

    I even installed the plugin SiteOrigin CSS to try and change the blockquote, but still no luck, see code below…

    blockquote p {
    color: blue;
    border-width: 1px;
    border-style: solid;
    border-color: #e6e6e6;
    background-color: #000000;
    }

    It seems the code for the blockquote is being over ridden somewhere.

    Well, you should be able to view the forum without being logged in.

    My workaround was to add the black background so the yellow text is visible.

    you link comes up with ‘can’t reach that page’ – even when I just try the site https://dungeonlair.com/

    Well that’s strange, but you can get to the site ok right?

    So Robin, did you create the bbp style pack plugin?

    my firewall software doesn’t like your site

    try

    #bbpress-forums blockquote {
    	color: blue !important;
    }

    Very strange… so I tried adding the code you suggested in the css section of my word press theme, and it didn’t work.

    So I made a change to the css code in SiteOrigin css and added “!important” and that worked, see code below…

    blockquote p {
    color: blue !important;
    border-width: 1px;
    border-style: solid;
    border-color: #e6e6e6;
    background-color: #000000;
    }

    so, why did adding “!important” allow the css to work?

    Also, thank you for your help, I really appreciate it.

    @robin-w

    ok, !important stops later css overwriting it, so it was a load order issue.
    and yes style pack is my plugin 🙂
