Question

What happened to the blockquotes on DO?

So I noticed a change in the way blockquotes are styled. Well, some of them.

In some of the articles, where the blockquotes are highlighted in red (useful), the whole blockquote is now out of its box.

Instead of being style like this:

Blockquote

It looks like this:

Blockquote

Note that in the second image, the top blockquote is still functioning.

Stylesheet misconfig?

PS: Appears the same on both Safari and Chrome

That explains.

There are quite a few, at least the ones I came across that has these issues are.

Here, here, here, here, and here.

I’m sure there are more. A good way perhaps is to go by author - bulk of those above come from Justin Ellingwood.

An update to the community site was pushed live yesterday which does include some modifications to the markdown parsing adding a few new features for use mostly in tutorial content. Can you provide the link to the page where you are seeing the issues shown in your screenshots as it appears that this may indicate an issue with the changes that will require a fix.
