Sorry if this has already been covered, but I wasn't able to find a way to fully search these discussions. Not really sure where to add this because it's not just a feature request, and there may be a bug issue.
There's no way to see what blockquotes in a review/post look like when you choose a theme. There's a lot of sample content so you can see what that will look like in your theme, but unfortunately none of that content contains a block quote within a text review. So the only way to see what blockquote formatting looks like is to chose the theme, save it, and then look at your blog on its webpage.
Could a block quote be added to the sample content for each theme?
Two of the themes have some readability problems as far as blockquotes go. I'm sure fixing this is easy in the CSS, but I'm still figuring that out, not to mention how to edit it within the Booklikes system - and in the meantime I thought I'd show the examples of what I'd like to change.
I posted screenshots of all four free theme in this blog post:
But I'll try adding them here:
Specific problem: Light colored font, dark colored background. Fine for a quote of only a few sentences, not good for reading multiple paragraphs. Also the linked font can disappear, but I think that's due to my own color choices. (Otherwise I love the ability to choose and change colors, and I love this layout design. It's what I'd be using if I could just tweak the quotes.)
Specific problems: The font is somewhat difficult to read here. But the text itself isn't wrapping around the image of the book as usual. Also I always set my blockquotes to align left (default seems to be centered, which is strange, but I can work with) - but for some reason in this theme my text is again center aligned. (In the blog post linked above I show what this same quote looks like in all 4 of the themes, so the alignment is just a problem in this one. This is another design layout I really like and would use - but the blockquote problem is something I can't fix myself.)
