This is some effect I've found in other forums and like it.

Sample:



1. Upload the two images ( - ) to your 'Themes\default\images' folder.
2. Open 'style.css' and look for :
/* A quote, perhaps from another post. */
.quote
{
color: #000000;
background-color: #C3B8D0;
border: 1px solid #000000;
margin: 1px;
padding: 1px;
font-size: x-small;
}

/* A code block - maybe even PHP ;). */
.code
{
color: #000000;
background-color: #cccccc;
border: 1px solid #000000;
padding: 1px;
font-family: "courier new", helvetica, "times new roman", serif;
font-size: x-small;
width: 99%;
margin: 1px auto 1px auto;
white-space: nowrap;
overflow: auto;
}

/* The "Quote:" and "Code:" header parts... */
.quoteheader, .codeheader
{
color: #000000;
text-decoration: none;
font-style: normal;
font-weight: bold;
font-size: x-small;
}

delete it and replace it with this one:
/* A quote, perhaps from another post. */
.quote
{
border-left: #808080 6px solid;
border-right: #808080 1px solid;
border-bottom: #808080 1px solid;
padding-right: 4px;
padding-left: 4px;
padding-bottom: 4px;
padding-top: 4px;
margin: 0px auto 8px;
color: #465584;
background-color: #ffffff;
font-size: x-small;
}

/* The "Quote:" header parts... */
.quoteheader
{
border-left: #808080 6px solid;
border-right: #808080 1px solid;
border-top: #808080 1px solid;
padding-right: 3px;
padding-left: 3px;
padding-bottom: 3px;
padding-top: 3px;
font-weight: bold;
font-size: 13px;
margin: 8px auto 0px;
color: #000000;
background-position: right 50%;
background-image: url(images/quoteh.gif);
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-color: #f2f3f4;
}

/* A code block - maybe even PHP ;). */
.code
{
border-left: #c0c0c0 1px solid;
border-right: #c0c0c0 1px solid;
border-bottom: #c0c0c0 1px solid;
border-top: #e1e1e1 1px solid;
padding-right: 2px;
padding-left: 2px;
padding-bottom: 2px;
padding-top: 2px;
margin: 0px auto;

font-size: x-small;
white-space: nowrap;
overflow: auto;
}

/* The "Code:" header parts... */
.codeheader
{
border-left: #c0c0c0 1px solid;
border-right: #c0c0c0 1px solid;
border-top: #c0c0c0 1px solid;
padding-left: 2px;

Very nice!

It looks very professional.

Awesome! Saw this on another forum some time ago too (can't remember which it was), and wanted to get it on mine too... but I never got around to trying how to do it... so this is great :).

Nice, added it to my board.

Ben, just a heads up... it doesn't seem to be working properly on your site... tried in IE and Firefox??

It works fine for me, tested in IE and Firefox...Is it just Ben's board you see the quote like that?

Yup... although I've only checked a few... and by a few, I mean one!!

The quotes on Ben_S's site looks like they're supposed to in those threads I just checked out (using Firefox) :).

Hmm, odd works fine in firefox for me, not looked in IE but noone has mentioned anything.

Just looked in IE and it looks ok too, although as a side note I've just noticed it stops the css from validating, will take a look at that tomorrow.

Just tried using IE/Firefox on a brand new XP Pro machine... same problem!?!

Still looks right to me in both.

Odd, looks fine to me in both IE and Firefox on 3 different computers.

My members don't seem to like it though.

Odd indeed, I tried it on my machine at home and my bro's machine... and still it wasn't putting the link in properly!?

Members probably don't like it cos they don't like change...!
