Twenty Twenty-Three: Quote block's citation styling cannot be changed

Reported by: severinepozzo's profile severinepozzo Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 6.1
Component: Bundled Theme Keywords: close
Focuses: css Cc:


In the Quote block the citation has less flexibility to be styled than the quote. Used WP 6.1 RC2 to test.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Add a Quote block in a Post editor
  2. Try to change the Citation's font size, appearance and background

Expected results
The background, font size and appearance can be changed the same way the quote styling can be changed.

Actual Results
The citation styling stays the same while the quote styling changes.

@ndiego @annezazu assuming this is accurate, should this get opened upstream in GitHub?

  • Component changed from General to Bundled Theme
  • Focuses css added; ui template removed
  • Summary changed from Twenty Twenty Three theme > Quote Block> Citation styling cannot be changed to Twenty Twenty-Three: Quote block's citation styling cannot be changed

Thanks for the report!

It comes from the theme.json:

	"cite": {
		"typography": {
			"fontSize": "var(--wp--preset--font-size--small)",
			"fontStyle": "normal"

That was added in PR 267.

Just to follow up here, this is a theme.json only setting, meaning citations can't currently be customized in the UI: This is part of overall work to improve customization and consistency of "elements": The UI and controls for an end user are coming later on after theme.json support is ensured.

I have updated this issue upstream with additional details from the Trac ticket:

  • Keywords close added

Reading back over this, it is my understanding that the resolution would be within the block itself not the theme. I therefore recommend to close this for now. Thank you everyone for your collaboration and if alternative opinions come up we can always reconsider this approach.
