Basic Use

cleanQuotes comes with 2 Stacks.

One is a Containing stack (use this to create a cleanQuotes section).

cleanQuotes Icon

The other is an Inner stack (drop this inside cleanQuotes Container section to create individual Testimonial sections). Be certain to place each inner section directly below or above each other and not inside one another or outside the Containing stack (these will break the stack from working properly).

Each of these sections can be customized. The container section will control customization for that entire cleanQuotes section. The inner section will control customization options only for that individual testimonial.

Built-in Quote Icons (v 1.0+)

The built-in quotation icons can only be inserted in the Customization Options when using the Quote Box theme. All other themes must manually insert them, which can be done by simply dragging and dropping them in. You can float the quote icon left or right by using the Edit Image icon and choosing Float Image Left (or Right).

Edit Text & Images

Here are the other quote icons free to download and use within the cleanQuotes RapidWeaver Stack (background color only added to assist with seeing the image – right click and select “Save Image As…”.

Adding Custom Images (v1.0+)

The Quote Box Theme, by default, will display a quotation image in the upper left corner of the testimonial. There are 5 built-in quotations that are displayed, though you can add your own image if you choose to do so.For the URL’s to be displayed on your images you will need to have published your website at least one time – if not these steps can be performed after your first publish.

1. Upload the image into the Resources section of RapidWeaver’s Edit Mode.
2. Click the image and select the clipboard icon (this will copy the URL to your clipboard)

3. Paste the URL (CMD+V) into the Custom Image section under General Controls in the cleanQuotes Container section (Make sure the Custom Image Icon checkbox has a check mark as well).
