Travel Forums System Talk Embedding Tweets in blogs

Out of interest, can you embed tweets in the blog, using the twitter quote block look? I know HTML isn't active in the blogs, but was wondering if there is some other way of generating that specific twitter look.

There's nothing in place for it (afaik), but you should be able to construct something that comes close with your own CSS. If you never use regular quotes in your blog, then you can just restyle those; otherwise you can probably use the "u" element (reliably unused and unloved in my experience), and restyle _that_.

If you don't have CSS knowledge, link me to what you consider the canonical look you're wanting to emulate, and I'll see if I can find some time to set up an example for you.

No, that's okay. I use regular quotes anyway, so don't want to change them for everything. Thanks for the offer, though, Sander.

Hey Greg, is this something you'd see yourself using a lot? It's not that difficult for us to set it up, but personally I haven't seen the need for it much. That of course doesn't mean others wouldn't! :)
