Blockquotes in Themes: Examples of the Four Free Options

So I took screenshots of what blockquotes look like in the various free themes. I'm going to post a link to this in a thread in the Official Discussion Group, but this post seemed like an easier thing to link to. I've tried to find a "search Discussions" link in there to find out if someone's brought this up already, but there's isn't one, er right? I also did a Find search and a quick google, but can't find that anyone's asked about it. So I'll make a new thread. And add a link to it here, as soon as this posts.


Thread link:

Discussion: Problems with Blockquotes Within Reviews in Booklike's Free Themes


Example images below are linked to Flickr pages with full size screenshots.


1) Bundled (in Chrome)


Booklikes Theme: Bundled


2) Custom Colors (in Firefox)


Booklikes Theme: Custom Colors


3) Gentle Spirit (in Firefox)


Booklikes Theme: Gentle Spirit


4) Smart Casual (in Firefox)


Booklikes Theme: SmartCasual


I could be completely happy with so much in Bundled or Custom Colors except I just can't find an easy way to tweak the blockquotes, and background and font color of one (Bundled) and the font choice of the other (Custom Colors) are both a big no for the readability of the text.


Bundled also has problems as far as what choice you make for link colors - it's really easy to have it blend into a background color choice. (Some of this may be my choice of colors - I didn't try many variations to find out. The blockquote problem seemed a bigger issue.)


Something is really odd in Custom Colors because I have my blockquotes all set to align left and not center - and you can see the same text in the Custom Color theme suddenly is center aligned. The others are all left aligned.


While Gentle Spirit and Smart Casual aren't much fun color and font wise - but here's what works:


1) blockquotes are in a clear, readable font, properly set away from the rest of the text,  and the align left added in dashboard formatting remains in place.


2) links stand out from the background, are differentiated from regular text and are readable.


Why Blockquotes Matter:

I know a lot of folk may not see quotes as terribly interesting, but for me it's the best way of giving an example of what a book's like. They're the best way you can convince me that a book's writing is as wonderful as you say it is - or as horrible. Using quotes allows the book to speak for itself. And the formatting matters because you want to have a clear indication of the words that aren't yours, but are the author's.


But then I'm also biased because I often post quotes in reviews so I can quickly look them up. It's especially nice when I no longer have access to the book for some reason.

Booklikes Templates and Quotes

I really like both of the newer Booklikes templates but suddenly I'm running against The Great Wall of Quoting. As in, when I'm really into a book I like to use a LOT of quotes about it. And if you're viewing my blog in Dashboard currently you'll not see any problem with quotes. But if you go to my blog page with either the Bundled or Custom Colors templates (I've tried both) you're going to see quotes in either a font or a background color that makes it very hard to read.


So, two things.


1) It would be great if the Booklikes preview page in the templates (in the Theme: Customize) areas had examples of quoted text. Because in the sample text there are no quotes used within a review and so the only way you have of seeing what quotes look like is to use the template (save it and then look at it on your blog page).


This would be a big problem if you planned to buy one of the purchasable templates because I'm not sure how you'd see an example of quotes before purchase.


2) I realize a lot of people like the look of white font on a dark background. For sidebars, etc. I'm there with you. But if you have a multi- paragraph quote going, white text on dark color is not friendly on the eyes. (There's a reason books still have dark text on white backgrounds. And why computer monitors no longer have white text on black screens.)


Here, I'll put this bit in a quote, and you can see it on the webpage to get an idea of the problem.

Specific example of why I'll have to give up my current use of Custom Colors: my post on a reading in progress.

 - Note how much harder it is to read the white text.

 - Because the link color is so close to the background color, once you click on a link within the quote the words disappear into the background.


Oh and it's not that I'm terribly worried about masses of folk reading my reviews for the quotes (because I've still not reformatted all of the messy ones from the GR import) - it's mostly me using them to look up the quotes I liked. But I'm thinking I may not be the only one to not love the white on dark background thing (again, for lots of text).


Specific hope for help? If any of you css/template gurus could point me to the code where I can specifically tweek just the quotes portion (font type and color and background color specifically, and where I'd find it in the wall o code)? If I can find the start of that section of code I might be able to fix it myself. Maybe. (I'm fluent in most html, not so much css. Er, this is in css, right?)


If it's too much twiddling (and I muck it up badly, which is always possible) I'll just go to one of the other older templates. Which is kind of a bummer as I was liking the more spring-ish colors.

Customizing BookLikes Tutorial - Adding Bells and Whistles - Booklikes Challenge Widget


It's getting close to the end of the year but there's still time to challenge yourself to read a few more books before 2014 gets here.  If you've imported your bookshelves from somewhere else you may have already completed a challenge and you can use books already shelved (as long as the  'Date Read' column has been filled in with a date this year) for this.  Any books added to the shelf at a later date are automatically added to your widget for you (just remember to compete the 'date read' bit.)


Lets add a Booklikes Challenge Widget to our sidebar to show everyone what massive bookworms we are :)
