How to customize blockquote style


In this tutorial, I will show you how to customize blockquote style in blogger. I will do all of these changes in CSS style. By using CSS, we can change the look of the blockquote such as changing margin, background, colour, padding, etc..So, you just need to follow the steps below:

  1. Go to Layout >> Template >> Download full template >> Click on Expand Widget Template
  2. Press Ctrl + F, search for ” .post blockquote “, you will see something like this:

.post blockquote {
margin:1em 20px;
.post blockquote p {
margin:.75em 0;

If you use custom template, and cannot find it, search for ” .entry blockquote ” ; it looks very similar with the codes above.

  • I have a few examples, so just replace the codes in Step 2 with the code in each example
    1. EXAMPLE 1:

      padding: .5em 1em;
      border-left: 5px solid #fce27c;
      background-color: #f6ebc1; }

      .post blockquote p {
      margin: 0; }

      font-family: “Monotype Corsiva”, “Apple Chancery”, fantasy;
      font-size: 220%;
      font-weight: bold; }
