    I am not exactly sure where we are supposed to put the text for quotes, so I created a page with a right side and added an Advanced Text Widget and put in the Colored Block quote in there. The text of the quote appears ok, but there is no color. I did change the color codes several times but still no color appears, even though I copied the text from the snippet list. Any idea why it might do that?

    I am actually interested in a completely different style of quote (something more along the lines of those found on this link: http://www.certifiedlanguages.com/services/). Do you know of a widget that can help create fancy frame styles (or how would you call that?). Thanks!

    Thanks… what I will do is try to recreate what you are trying to do. Which snippet were you using? This is to go into the right sidebar? Do you have this quote live on your site right now? If so, if you could provide me with a link to it, I can also check out the source code and see what might be happening.

    Here is the link. http://www.translationone.com/index2.php/?page_id=30&preview=true&preview_id=30&preview_nonce=f9f1d1a789
    For the last quote, which is a bit different, I was hoping to be able to copy the source of the quote from the website I wanted, but all it did was paste the text without any color or anything else.

    Found the problem…my fault and will add this to the next update release. But for you, open the theme’s style.css and look for line 713 for this:

    /* Blockquotes
    ------------------------------------------------------------- */
    
    .format-standard blockquote,
    .type-page blockquote {
    	width: 90%;
    	margin: 1.25em auto 2em;
    	padding: 0 0 0 1.250em;
    	border-left: 0.750em solid #bcc0c3;
    	font-size: 1.188em;
    	font-style: italic;
    	color: #7e8184;
    }

    Add this just before the .format-standard blockquote:

    .widget blockquote,
