For my “Reader Mail” posts, I noticed that the formatting was correct when viewed as a single post, but incorrect when viewed on my blog homepage.
I assumed that it was a defect in the rawr plugin, which I use for the “Reader Mail” posts. I was wrong. It’s a bug in the CSS for the blockquote tag. I confirmed it by looking at other posts that used the blockquote tag.
This was a free theme, “simplemarket”, but I’ve had to patch bugs in the CSS.
This post will help me troubleshoot the CSS defect.
blockquote test 1
blockquote test 2
- Numbered list
- Numbered list and blockquote
I don’t have much CSS experience, but I’m going to dig through to try and fix the error.
Very weird: Numbered list ol/li comes out wrong on a single page but OK on the blog homepage. Blockquote is right on a single page but wrong on the blog homepage. I use blockquote much more often than numbered list.
