Text block quote, invisible vertical line

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://honestlycarmen.com/blog/a-room-with-a-view-9wafn

Hello, 

When I click the quote icon in the text block a gray vertical line appears. When I go to save the text the vertical line disappears. How can I make this line visible when saved? I'm thinking its a matter of addressing its color... Meaning the vertical line's color is possibly the background color, & if so, where can I change this color because I have not been able to find? 

I'm using version 7.1, Souto template. 

Thank you!

I've had this problem for a while. No vertical line and no indentation (Five Template). 
The following CSS insertion solved all the problems and allows for changing text colour and size as well. Obviously, colour, size and vertical line width can be changed to your preferences:
.
sqs-block-html blockquote, .sqs-block-markdown blockquote {
    border-left: 5px solid #F0F19D;
    padding-left: 20px;
       color: #F0F19D;
           font-size: 16px;
           font-weight: normal;
}

  1. Hi! I am having this same issue and the code above does not work for me. I don't know why this happened as it was showing up normally and then all of a sudden after i edited one time it will not stay after i hit save. I see the line only within editing mode. (First photo editing mode, second phone after "Done/Save")

The CSS seems to be missing from the stylesheet.

Try adding this in your Custom CSS, change the hex to the colour you need. Save and refresh.

blockquote {
    border-left: 5px solid #B564F7;
    padding: 1px 10px 1px 20px;
}

 

@fufu15 If this doesn't help, then the issue is likely different and specific to your site, you'll need to share url.

This helped to remove the line too as I didn't want it by changing the "border-left" to "none" instead of a color and size! Just in case anyone was looking for that.

blockquote {
    border-left: none;
}

blockquote {
    border-left: 5px solid #B564F7;
    padding: 1px 10px 1px 20px;
}
