I’m using Reykjavik on my first self-hosted website through wordpress and wondering if I can apply more editing to the excerpts near the top of my page. For example, I would like to have more spaces between the quotes and the authors names and I’d also like to change the size of the quote.
I have no coding experience and know only basic concepts. I’m using beaverbuilder plug in with the website.

Tip: When using the plugin, make sure to enable it for pages and enable “Use the full version of the editor” in plugins settings.
Tip: When writing blockquote with cite, first write the whole text inline, together with the cited author info (or separate the author info to new line using soft line break – SHIFT+ENTER), then select the whole text and apply blockquote formatting first. Only then select the cited author info within and apply the cite formatting.
Other than that you would need to use hire someone to modify the theme looks for you.applied to your custom HTML (or on blockquote+cite HTML I’ve provided above) to style the quote the way you like. Or try to
