Blockquote doesn't work in bbPress "Options" theme

  • Homepage –

    Using a heavily-customized theme of Options 0.1 Alpha (Dark) by Justin Tadlock (

    [blockquote]Quite simply, the problem is that BBquotes don’t work.[/blockquote]

    It doesn’t matter whether I use

    , [blockquote] or the HTML code for blockquotes.

    I’ve noticed that removing the { margin: 0; padding: 0; } at the very start of the style.css does enable it, but it jumbles up the paddings and alignments for the header menus and topic posts. My attempts to import code enabling normal quoting from other themes were unsuccessful. PS. Justin’s “Structure” theme also doesn’t support quotes.

    Any help or advice will be much appreciated, thank you.

    What do you mean “does not work”? It just doesn’t change the look of things inside the blockquote tag? What do you want it to do instead?

    I want to indent it.

    A good looking quote.

    As it stands, to quote text the forum users and I have to write:

    “A bad looking quote”

    because neither BBquote nor HTML has any effects whatsoever.



    This makes the block quotes on your test thread look different in my browser:

    #thread .entry blockquote {
    padding:0 25px;
    font-weight: bold;

    Just add that after #thread .entry in your style.css and change the styling rules to whatever you want.

    Thanks, chrishajer, you’re a star!
