    @jac Not sure which type of blue you want, but you could do it with this

    .topic .posts .content blockquote {
        font-size: 12px;
        color: #ffffff;
    }
    
    blockquote {
        font-size: inherit;
        border-left: 5px solid #194F90;
        background: #194F90;
        border-radius: 4px;
        margin: 0 auto 40px;
        padding: 15px;
        position: relative;
    }
    blockquote:after {
        border-right: 20px solid transparent;
        border-top: 20px solid #194F90;
        bottom: -20px;
        content: "";
        position: absolute;
        left: 20px;
    }
    

    Essentially, you’d be modifying the previous block I provided, and forcing white on .topic .posts .content blockquote

    Essentially, you’ll land up with this

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks mate, is that just on quotes?

    I like the look of that, either that or a yellow.

    Would you be able to share the code for that at all Mark? 😁.

    Apologies! 😁

    Worked a treat! Many thanks again 👍🏻.

    Am ok to keep posting little tweaks that I am looking to change?

    Looking to change the font & number of read posts.

    Looking to change this to blue white a white font and then as the posts are read it changes to yellow?

    Is this something that is possible? I seem to remember it working out well on the last installation.

    Many thanks.


  • Maybe something like that for the titles?

    Thanks as always.

    @jac Do you have anything in mind for the body font ? I recall last time we used Poppins (which happens to be the fine used here)

    I’ve actually found a screenshot of how grtit looked last time. The font etc and the bottom bar looked great!

    Although the bottom colour is a little dark for County still looked great 😉

    I’ll have to have a look, I remember yes. Looks great, although I’m mindful of copying.

    @jac No issues. It’s really just a font 🤷‍♂️
    Thanks for providing the screenshots. This is useful. I’ll get to this ASAP.

    Many thanks Mark,

    As previously discussed I know you don’t want things copying although the reason I ask for the changes to be replicated as they are great ideas and improve the design etc.

    Not a problem 😁

    @jac thanks. Again, taking ideas from this site is in fact encouraged (and I’ll happily provide code and CSS to help anyone achieve that) but a complete replica isn’t very creative, and generally, not permitted without prior consent.

    In fact, I’m considering writing a blog post on how to create a decent layout and colour scheme for a website, which will include hints, tips, tricks, etc - essentially, all the things I’ve learned over the years which remain key to this day when creating a website.

    Many thanks, sounds like a good idea mate definitely!

    The issue surrounding copying your site theme etc is absolutely understable, although for me I’ll 100% say that a few bits of css code changes and the plain theme is no more.

    I think generally I’d never have achieved the simplest CSS change or known how to do or without the code shared earlier which I thank you for and of course hope to learn myself through the planned blog post.

    I don’t mind if you want to make the changes under ‘phenomlab’ or if you want to post the code here and then I can add it into the code.

    Many thanks

    Hope the decorating is going well 😉.

    Is there any way to change the member name colour on the quote? As this clashes with the colour.

    Thanks 👍🏻.

    @jac Sorry for late reply. You can use the below for this. I also noticed that the blockquote text was black, so the second line blockquote p will also resolve that.

    blockquote a.plugin-mentions-user.plugin-mentions-a,
    blockquote p {
        color: #ffffff;
    }

    No problem Mark

    That’s worked a treat, thank you very much!
