[Pro] Custom CSS Blockquote Style

I’m trying to replicate and indented blockquote, very similar

to this.

This is a piece of cake in Markdown, but how do I implement it in FW? I’ve tried pasting this bit of code, as I like the subtle effect. But I’m doing something wrong.

I’ve tried pasting the code in the extended attributes field of the text style I’m working with (called ‘blockquote’.) But it doesn’t seem to be having any affect at all.

Thanks!

This is how I used to do it, though perhaps the process has evolved/changed since then, I’m not sure.

You need to create 3 separate tag-only styles, blockquote, blockquote:before etc. (as shown in the example) using the main Styles editor. Then you need to add the Name/Value for each and every property listed (line-height, vertical-align etc.) for each of the 3 styles. Make sense?

Or - like in this example - http://deltadesign.co/FW7Test/blockquote.html

Go to Page>Html Markup and choose the before section and paste in.

<style type="text/css">
blockquote {
  background: #f9f9f9;
  border-left: 10px solid #ccc;
  margin: 1.5em 10px;
  padding: 0.5em 10px;
  quotes: "201C""201D""2018""2019";
}
blockquote:before {
  color: #ccc;
  content: open-quote;
  font-size: 4em;
  line-height: 0.1em;
  margin-right: 0.25em;
  vertical-align: -0.4em;
}
blockquote p {
  display: inline;
}
</style>

Now in the styles Editor create a new Tag only style (with the Tag ‘blockquote’) making sure it has a paragraph attribute. (A Tag only style has nothing in the ‘Name’ box).

And then apply that style to the para that you want to turn into a Blockquote.

There are two methods I’ve used - first, the text-apply tag-style that both
Todd and Dave mention… I used that for years, but a while back I switched
to putting my blockquote content into an inline div and then applying
Walters HTML Element action to which he graciously added a blockquote
element.

The text-apply method only let’s you have a single paragraph and no other
tags. It literally replaces the text tags with the blockquote tags - which
leaves the content as tagless, unsemantic text and will require additional
styling. That kind of spare and primitive code was okay way back when, but
not in the modern semantic world. Using the action-apply method allows you
to have multiple paragraphs, text tags (other than strong and em) as well
as image or other content.

Here’s a quick example to show the difference using the same css-tricks

Thanks Joe – I went back and expanded the copy, added images and links,
and then had some fun with styling it all, responsively, using only Freeway
Pro.
