Fyri linking a subject to a collection of quotes on Wikiquote, sí Template:Wikiquote.

Usage[rætta wikitekst]

{{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:Blockquote.

Synopsis[rætta wikitekst]

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}}

Style[rætta wikitekst]

Styling is applied through CSS rules in MediaWiki:Common.css.

/* Styling for Template:Quote */
blockquote.templatequote {
     margin-top: 0;
}
blockquote.templatequote div.templatequotecite {
    line-height: 1.5em;
    /* @noflip */
    text-align: left;
    /* @noflip */
    padding-left: 1.6em;
    margin-top: 0;
}

The source title is enclosed in <cite>...</cite>, thus it shows italicized.

Examples[rætta wikitekst]

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

Cry "Havoc" and let slip the dogs of war.

William ShakespeareJulius Caesar, act III, scene I

Restrictions[rætta wikitekst]

If you do not provide 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 or a blank-name parameter, as: {{{|text}}}. (The text before 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. Put a break (newline) after the template, or the next blank line might be ignored.

Line breaks[rætta wikitekst]

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 work around this, use the <poem> tag inside <blockquote>, which will convert line breaks to br tags:

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

Line 1
Line 2
Line 3
Line 4

Known problems[rætta wikitekst]

This template sets a text style which might ignore one blank line, and so the template must be ended with a break (newline). Otherwise, beware inline, as:

  • text here {{quote|this is quoted}} More text here spans a blank line

Unless a {{quote|xx}} is ended with a line break, then the next blank line might be ignored and two paragraphs joined.
