This documentation is transcluded from Template:Cquote/doc (edit | history)

Usage

The first parameter takes the quote itself, the second the author, and the third the work being quoted. See {{quote}} for single quote marks.

Blockquote or {{Quotation}} is preferable

In most cases it is preferable to use the <blockquote> markup for quotations or the {{Quotation}} template that uses the <blockquote> markup.

For example,

<blockquote>The ink of the learned is equal in merit to the blood of the martyrs.</blockquote>

gives the following result:

The ink of the learned is equal in merit to the blood of the martyrs.

Or, using the {{Quotation}} template,

{{quotation|The ink of the learned is equal in merit to the blood of the martyrs.|Louis de Bernières|Birds Without Wings}}

gives the following result:

The ink of the learned is equal in merit to the blood of the martyrs. — Louis de Bernières, Birds Without Wings

Basic example using Cquote

{{cquote|The ink of the learned is equal in merit to the blood of the martyrs.}}

gives the following result:

The ink of the learned is equal in merit to the blood of the martyrs.

Define the author and source using Cquote

There are three automatic parameter that can be used with this template. The first parameter is the quotation, as seen in the example above. The 2nd and 3rd parameters define the author and source of the quote respectively.

{{cquote|The ink of the learned is equal in merit to the blood of the martyrs.|Louis de Bernières|Birds Without Wings}}

gives the following result:

The ink of the learned is equal in merit to the blood of the martyrs.

—Louis de Bernières, Birds Without Wings
