    As above – also is there a way to make the container bigger universally?

    re the table:
    Thanks @Skandha that worked.

    What about the timeline? – they tell me it is definitely a container issue.

    They included a screenshot but its too low-res so I’m seeking a better one from them.

    Yes that worked! Thank you 🙂

    That does work BUT I don’t want all the menus right justified – I don’t like the look.

    It would be better if

    1. The drop down columns could be sized to fit the text.

    2. The text in just one column (in this case the home drop down) could be right justified, without affecting other columns.

    Is there a way of doing these things please?

    Great thank you.

    One LAST question for this thread – is it possible to actually reduce the size (in points) of that quote symbol?
    (If not that’s OK just wondering)

    OK I added that to the end of the existing css noted above.
    Works! Thanks.

    (Do I need to remove any of the .wp-block-quote code? Or should I leave it as is?

    The only change I’d like now is for the actual ” symbol at the top of the quote to be on the left hand side, and coloured black.

    How do I achieve that please?

    Noit no sorted yet.

    As stated above

    looking at the quotes here (and almost everywhere else) it’s consistent.
    https://www.gayundah.info/government-requirement/

    however on this page the quotes are the same as above except they have a background colour which I prefer.
    https://www.gayundah.info/reception-in-brisbane/
    I’m not sure why this page is different?

    How can I get all pages to have that quote background please?

    What hosting provider are you using?
    If it’s hostgator or anything similar to that – move to a different one!

    Ideally choose a provider located in the country that most of your site visitors come from – that will increase the chance of higher speeds BUT the main thing will be the quality of the hosting provider and the type of plan you are on. Make sure your host offers sufficient bandwidth and server space to suit your needs.

    The following is good advice from https://www.netregistry.com.au/blog/eight-rules-for-choosing-a-web-host/
    I’m not affiliated with them in any way.
    The article is on an Australia website but the principles are universal.

    Web hosting providers

    Here are eight rules to follow when selecting a web host for your site.

    1. Be sure they offer what you need

    Before making a decision, first ensure that the host you’re looking at covers all the technologies and services your site or application needs. Do they handle the right database and are they familiar with the content management system you’re using? For the best result, you need a web host with experience hosting the systems you use.

    2. Check the company website

    If the website is light on information, doesn’t have a large knowledge base for troubleshooting or doesn’t offer details about issue resolution and ticket systems, then skip it.

    3. Guarantees

    An experienced and professional host will guarantee a certain level of “uptime” (days without the site being unavailable). Generally you want to be looking for 99.99 per cent uptime guarantees (more if you’re hosting a mission-critical application).

    4. Easy-to-use backend

    Look for a comprehensive backend system that allows you to control your account. The control panels should allow restarting instances if you have a virtual host, automated billing, issue escalation, security and configuration.

    5. Do your research

    Websites like whirlpool.net.au (or similar forums in other countries) have huge forums where people share comparison info on hosts and ISPs. This is a good way to find out whether the host has a good reputation or a history of regular outages.

    6. Keep backups

    A competent web host will make regular backups of your site, but it pays to have your own comprehensive and regularly updated backups should anything go wrong, or in case you need to switch hosts in a hurry.

    7. Own your domain

    Register your domain names through a reseller or domain company rather than having it done by the web host. This will ensure you have complete control over the domain registry, particularly in a case where you need to move hosts. Often when having your host register a domain they will register the details to the hosting company, leaving you stuck if you want to move quickly.

    8. Choose service and reputation, not cost

    Do your research, check the fine print and ultimately make your decision based on reliability, reputation and services. Cheap web hosts are everywhere, but spending a little more money can mean the difference between a consistently available website and weeks of downtime.

    Your website is central to your business so it should run seamlessly to allow you to focus on what you do best. Follow these guidelines when selecting a host and your customers will thank you for it.

    I’ve commented out the parts I though relevant so additional css now appears as follows:

    
    /* Menu item Hover & Active Text Color */
    .site-navigation li a:hover,
    .site-navigation li a:focus,
    .site-navigation .current_page_item > a,
    .site-navigation .current_page_item > a {
        color: #ff8000;
    }
    
    @media screen and (min-width: 64em) {
    	/* Menu Background Color */
    	.site-primary-menu,
    	.site-navigation ul ul,
    	.site-navigation ul ul li,
    	.search-container {
    		background-color: #000;
    	}
    	/* Menu Text Color */
    	.site-navigation a,
    	.social-navigation a, 
    	.menu-search-main-toggle {
    	    color: #fff;
    	}
    
    	/* Sub-menu Border and Color */
    	.site-navigation .menu-item-has-children > ul,
    	.site-navigation .page_item_has_children > ul {
    		border-top: 3px solid #ff8000;
    	}
    }
    /*
    /* blockquote quotation mark 
    blockquote::before {
        left: 0% !important;
        color: #000000 !important;

        font-family: Arial !important;
    		font-weight: bolder;	
    }
    */
    /* blockquote text 
    blockquote {
        font-size: 20px;
        font-family: Georgia;
       	font-weight: normal; 
    		color: #000000;
        text-align: left;
    }
    */
    .wp-block-quote::before {
        content: "\201C" !important;
    }
    .wp-block-quote {
        border: unset;
        padding: 50px 0 0 0 !important;
    }
    
    /* padding inside blockquote */
    .wp-block-quote p {
      padding-top: 15px;
      padding-right: 20px;
      padding-bottom: 15px;
      padding-left: 25px;
    }
    
    /* blockquote background image */
    /*
    .wp-block-quote {
        background-image: url('https://www.gayundah.info/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/aerial-photo-arrowed-web.jpg');
    }
    */
    
    /* blockquote background colour */
    .wp-block-quote {
    background-color: #ebf2f7;
    }
    
    /* blockquote border radius */
    .wp-block-quote {
    border-radius: 50px 20px;align-content

    .site-navigation .current_page_item > a,
    .site-navigation .current_page_item > a {

    .site-navigation ul ul,
    .site-navigation ul ul li,
    .search-container {
    background-color: #000;
    }
    /* Menu Text Color */
    .site-navigation a,
    .social-navigation a,
    .menu-search-main-toggle {
    color: #fff;
    }

    /* Sub-menu Border and Color */
    .site-navigation .menu-item-has-children > ul,

    in reply to: How to change font/design for blockquotes PART 2 #282495

    Similar to that yes, but as per the previous code you provided so that the quote symbol is to the left and a different colour.

    Weird I just accessed through anonymous browser and got a 401 first time but refreshed and it worked.

    Not under the quote, but beside the quote (as per my comments above).

    I’ve created this page and a created a quote using the standard gutenberg quote block.
    https://www.gayundah.info/aaa-test/

    as you can see, it’s not in the format that should appear.

    Instead, there is a line down the LHS, there is no quote symbol at the top left hand side.

    Hello? I’d appreciate some more guidance on this please? I need to resolve this problem as my website is looking poor at the moment due to this issue.

    Also – Is there a reason for the delays in response to help threads on the catch themes forum recently?
