    It looks like it's called the 'blockquote', but I've searched in Style Properties and be buggered if I can find the little devil, it's doing my head, please can someone rescue me here?

    I think I am going to have to decline your very kind offer, I can hardly move around this place as it is - those little buggers are taking over. :(

    :D

    Thanks for this. Was looking too. :)

    Also, where do you change the size of the quote 'box'? I'd like to make it a little wider and closer to the full length of the message area.

    Style Properties -> BB Code Elements -> BB Code Block -> Margin Right

    Thanks Brogan.

    One more thing, how do I add a little space between the quote box and the message text?

    Can you do a screenshot and point out where you mean?

    Unless you just mean the margin bottom attribute?

    Yes sir, here is where I mean

    Yes, just set the margin bottom in the same place.

    Currently has "1em" in that space. Any idea on what I should adjust it to?

    1em is the default margin so it should appear as it does here.
    Are you using a custom style?
    It's possible it has been overridden in EXTRA.css or elsewhere.

    If you can provide a link I can check the CSS.

    Yes, using a custom style.

    It might be worth contacting the designer and asking them how they have overridden the Style Properties.

    In the meantime you can add this to EXTRA.css:
    Code:
    .bbCodeBlock {
    margin-bottom: 1em !important;
    }

    Thanks Brogan. :D

    And yes, we've been in contact through another member here to see if we can get some direction.
