Usage[edit]

{{Quote}} adds a block quotation to an article page.

This is easier to type and more wiki-like than the equivalent HTML <blockquote>...</blockquote> tags, and has additional pre-formatted attribution and source parameters.

Note: Block quotes do not normally contain quotation marks. See MOS:QUOTE.

Synopsis[edit]

Unnamed (positional) parameters

{{quote|phrase|person|source}} This markup will fail if any parameter contains an equals sign (=).

Numbered (positional) parameters

{{quote|1=phrase|2=person|3=source}}

Named parameters

{{quote|text=phrase|sign=person|source=source}}

Example[edit]

Wikitext

{{Quote|text=Cry "Havoc" and let slip the dogs of war.|sign=[[William Shakespeare]]|source=''[[Julius Caesar (play)|Julius Caesar]]'', act III, scene I}}

Result
Cry "Havoc" and let slip the dogs of war.
William ShakespeareJulius Caesar, act III, scene I

Restrictions[edit]

If you do not provide quoted text, the template generates a parser error message, which will appear in red text in the rendered page.

If any parameter's actual value contains an equals sign (=), you must use named parameters. (The equals sign gets interpreted as a named parameter otherwise.)

If any parameter's actual value contains characters used for wiki markup syntax (such as pipe, brackets, single quotation marks, etc.), you may need to escape it. See Template:! and friends.

Be wary of URLs which contain restricted characters. The equals sign is especially common.

Multiple paragraphs[edit]

view · talk · edit

The <blockquote> element and any templates that use it do not honor newlines:

Markup Renders as
<blockquote>
Line 1
Line 2
Line 3
Line 4
</blockquote>

Line 1 Line 2 Line 3 Line 4

To resolve this, use the <poem> tag inside <blockquote>:

Markup Renders as
<blockquote><poem>
Line 1
Line 2
Line 3
Line 4
</poem></blockquote>

Line 1
Line 2
Line 3
Line 4
