Using the Quote Block

Use the Quote Block to add styled quotes and testimonials to your site. Most templates have a default style for the Quote Block that you can change in the Style Editor.

Step 1 - Add the Quote Block

  1. Open a page or post editor.
  2. Click an Insert Point or the +.
  3. Select Quote from the menu.
  4. For more detailed steps, visit Adding blocks.
  5. In the Edit Quote window, enter the quote in the first box.
  6. Enter its source in the second box.
  7. Click Apply to publish your changes.

Step 2 - Style the Quote Block

The following templates offer styling options for the Quote Block. Templates are grouped by family.

  • Adirondack
  • Aviator, Aubrey, Encore
  • Bedford, Anya, Bryant, Hayden
  • Brine, Aria, Basil, Burke, Cacao, Clay, Ethan, Fairfield, Feed, Foster, Greenwich, Hatch, Heights, Hunter, Hyde, Jaunt, Juke, Keene, Lincoln, Maple, Margot, Marta, Mentor, Mercer, Miller, Mojave, Moksha, Motto, Nueva, Polaris, Rally, Rover, Sofia, Sonny, Sonora, Thorne, Wav, West
  • Farro, Haute
  • Five (Blockquote tweak)
  • Flatiron
  • Forte
  • Ishimoto
  • Marquee, Adversary, Alex, Eamon, Ginger, Mint, Shift (discontinued)
  • Momentum
  • Native
  • Pacific, Charlotte, Fulton, Horizon, Naomi
  • Skye, Foundry, Indigo, Ready, Tudor
  • Tremont, Camino, Carson, Henson
  • Wells
  • Wexley
  • York, Artesia, Flores, Harris, Jasper, Jones, Lange, Shibori

In these templates, open a page with a Quote Block on it. Go to the Home Menu, and click Design, then Style Editor. Then look for QuoteQuote Block, or Blockquote tweaks.

If your template isn't on this list, a workaround for customizing a stylized quote is to add the quote to a Text Block instead, and then give the quote a style like Header 2 or Header 3. Then use the Header 2 or Header 3 options in the Style Editor to change the appearance of the text.

Note: Using headings for quotes may interfere with your site's SEO. This workaround is a good option if your template isn't in the above list and if your primary goal is to enhance a quote's design. However, search engines identify content in Heading styles (H1, H2, H3) as keyword-rich areas for indexing. By placing a quote or other text in a Heading style, you may give it more prominence than intended.
