Styling Quotations Look

Look and formating of the displayed quotation can be customized with cascading stylesheets (CSS). Class quote div container enclosed the whole quotation. Inside are two div containers with classes quotation for the quote itself and source for quotations author and source. The following sample removes standard underline link formating, uses larger font size for the quotation and uses font color gray for quotations author and source.

div.quote * a {
  color: black;
  font-size: larger;
div.quote div.source, div.quote div.source a {
  color: gray;

You have to add the CSS lines to your Joomla template (i.e. for beez the file templates/beez/css/template.css).
