I tend to post a lot of block quotes in my blogs, and I also include photos. I can't seem to get the blockquote feature to play nice with a photo.

see: http://www.5goulds.com/archives/63

the block quote will not word wrap, and leaves a huge chunk of empty real estate.

I tried moving the picture around, and it just doesn't seem to like being near a block quote.

suggestions? solutions?

Thanks, Doug

You can comment or delete the clear:both in style.css around line 1028 but then the border of the blockquote will hide behind the image (even though its content will be outside). I am not sure where that's coming from and have not been able to solve that so far. One fix would be to have no border and background on blockquotes but either another font, font color, or a background image in the top left corner or a combination of these. To put an image in the top left corner

HTML Code:
blockquote {
padding-left: 50px;
background: transparent url(/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/hugequote.gif) no-repeat top left;
}
A huge curly quote image in a light gray or something like that

In using 3.4.3 I made a similar edit to css.php (as style.css is a little shorter now) on line 1173; taking out the
Code:
clear: both;
all together. However, and I don't know if it'll make a difference, but I left the same code at line 1180. It seems to work fine on http://1790.us. Just thought I'd through this in here as I know I run into this everytime I update.

Any chance this blockquote hack could be an Atahualpa Theme Option in a future version? I keep forgetting to do this each time I update to a new version.

Thanks
