Use

This template adds a block quotation to an article page.

It is a simplified version of Wikipedia's Template:Blockquote.

Parameters

This template doesn't need the parameters to be named if kept in the right order:

{{quote|Quote text|A name|A source|Size}}

Nevertheless, they can be named if some values do not exist, or contain special characters (e.g. "=" inside a web address).

Note that the "source" will display a comma and a space in front of it, so it needs to be preceded by an "author".

{{Quote
| text   =
| author =
| source =
| size   =
| large  =
}}
  • text: the text to quote.
  • author: its author.
  • source: the source of the quote (internal or external links can be used).
  • size: the prefered font size in pixels (should not be used in articles).
  • large: used to display the quote in a bigger size (used on top of articles principally). Any value will activate it, but preferably use "yes".

Examples

Unnamed parameters (normal size)
