Usage

Syntax:

{{ quote | 1 | 2 | 3 | color | size | textColor | textSize | sourceColor | sourceSize }}

Where:

  • 1 = a quote
  • 2 = a person
  • 3 = a source
  • color = a color value for the quotation marks
  • size = a size value for the quotation mark (that is, in %, px, pt, and other units of measurement)
  • textColor = a color value for the quote
  • textSize = a size value for the quote
  • sourceColor = a color value for the person and source
  • sourceSize = a size value for the person and source

Example

This:

{{quote|Quote Text|Person|Source|color=lightblue|size=360%|textColor=red|textSize=200%|sourceColor=green|sourceSize=100%}}

results in this:


   
 
Quote Text
 

 
 

—Person, Source

Notes

  • Do not use white space immediately before or after curly brackets or vertical bars.
  • If you want to change the color and size variables, then you must declare the parameter explicitly (i.e. you must include color= or size=).
  • If a parameter value contains an equals sign, then the parameter name must be declared explicitly." This means that if you want to include a URL in your quote, and if that URL contains an equals sign, then you must explicitly declare the parameter. All that means is that you should add 1=, 2=, or 3=, as appropriate, ahead of your quote text, speaker, or source, like this: {{quote|1=Quote text|2=Person|3=Source|color=silver|size=360%}}
  • Do not add <big>, <small>, or <center> tags inside the quote, the only acceptable tags are <pre> and <br />; all other tags screw up the formatting and makes Admins angry. You wont like them when they are angry.
