How to change the blockquote font on Squarespace

This can be frustrating as there is often not the option in the Style Editor. Here is how you change it: 

  1. Go to Design

  2. Then Custom CSS and paste the following:

 .sqs-block-content blockquote {
      font-size: 40px;
     font-family:"Helvetica Neue";
     color: green;
 }

Change the color, size and font-family to your choice. Not sure what font family yours is? Right click on a piece of the text that has the font that you are after and click Inspect. A window will pop up to your right that may look intimatading if you don't have any coding knowledge, but don't worry. Scroll down on the screen similar to below until you see the font family for that text. Copy it and add into the quotation marks into the code above. 

For instance, with the example below the new blockquote would be: 

 .sqs-block-content blockquote {
      font-size: 40px;
     font-family:"Menlo, Monaco, Consolas, 'Courier New', monospace";
     color: green;
 }
