Wiki Formatting Quotes In An Essay

This template is used on 620,000+ pages.
To avoid large-scale disruption and unnecessary server load, any changes to this template should first be tested in its /sandbox or /testcases subpages or in your own user subpage. The tested changes can then be added to this page in a single edit. Please consider discussing any changes on the talk page before implementing them.

Author Name, source in "Quotes" or Italics as needed

This template can be used for block quotations (long quotes set off from the main text). However, this use is not advised in articles. The Manual of Style guidelines for block quotations recommend formatting block quotations using the template or the HTML <blockquote> element, for which that template provides a wrapper.

  • Quotes work best when used with short sentences, and at the start or end of a section, as a hint of or to help emphasize the section's content.
  • For typical quotes, especially those longer than the rest of the paragraph in which they are quoted, provides a borderless quote with decorative quotation marks, and provided a bordered quote. Both span the article width. (However, do not use for block quotations in articles.)
  • For very short quotes, (with decorative quotation marks) or (framed) can be used to set the quote off to either the right or left as in a magazine sidebar. This can be effective on essay pages and WikiProject homepages.

Usage

For actual quotes, and poems, this template (a variant of ) can be used to present a title, quote, author, and source in a box such as that shown opposite, with options to customise its bordering, background, alignment and other aspects. The box itself is floating div, which, like images, can appear on the right or left or across the entire page. Article text will wrap around the div in the first two cases. This is useful in articles that are short on images and need some graphic-like element, or where an important or interesting quote wants to be presented in a way that sets it off from the surrounding text.

Caution: This is a div-based template, so it may malfunction if indented using wikitext syntax. This is a current limitation of the Wikipedia HTML parsing software.

When used with a poem, it is convenient to wrap the poem's content in tags; these preserve line breaks without having to manually insert markup.

Parameters

Basic parameters

  • title = Optional title to appear at the top of the quote box.
  • quote = The quote or other text to be displayed in the box.
  • author = Optional name of the author. A reference citation can be added at the end.

Main box styling

  • width: The width of the quote box. Defaults to the width of the quote included, unless where the width will default to 100%.
  • border: The width of the quote box border. Defaults to 1px. Remember to include 'px' or 'em' to specify the correct width.
  • fontsize: The fontsize of the quote box text. Defaults to 88%.
  • bgcolor: The RGB background color of the box. Defaults to #F9F9F9 (light gray).
  • style: A generic CSS style parameter. Entries in this parameter supersede any duplicates in the preceding parameters.

Title styling

  • title_bg: The RGB background color of the title. Defaults to #F9F9F9 (light gray).
  • title_fnt: The title font color. Defaults to black.
  • tstyle: A generic CSS style parameter. Entries in this parameter supersede any duplicates in the preceding title parameters.

Quote styling

  • qalign: Alignment of the quote element—left / right / center. Defaults to left.
  • qstyle: A generic CSS style parameter. Entries in this parameter supersede any duplicates in the preceding quote parameters.
  • quoted: If this parameter evaluates to true (is not 0, false, or empty) the quote box will enclose the quote in fat-quotes. Use judiciously, per MOS:QUOTE.

Source styling These affect the entire and block, below the quotation.

  • salign: Alignment of the source element—left / right / center. Defaults to the value of qalign.

Full syntax

{{Quote box |class = <!-- Advanced users only. See the "Custom classes" section below. --> |title = |quote = |author = |source = |align = |width = |border = |fontsize = |bgcolor = |style = |title_bg = |title_fnt = |tstyle = |qalign = |qstyle = |quoted = |salign = |sstyle = }}

Examples

Various example codes and their results. For more intricate examples see Template:Quote_box/examples. In the examples the {{lorem ipsum}} template merely generates several lines of sample text without meaning, and is not part of the quote syntax.

Floating and wrapping

Minimal code, defaults to floating right and minimal width:

{{Quote box |quote = Cry "Havoc", and let slip the dogs of war. |author = [[William Shakespeare]] |source = ''[[Julius Caesar (play)|Julius Caesar]]'', Act III, Scene I. }} {{Lorem ipsum}}

Centered, not floating:

Fat-quotes

{{Quote box |quote = Cry "Havoc", and let slip the dogs of war. |author = [[William Shakespeare]] |source = ''[[Julius Caesar (play)|Julius Caesar]]'', Act III, Scene I. |quoted = 1 }}

Alignment of text in box

{{Quote box |title = Centered quote |quote = Cry "Havoc", and let slip the dogs of war. |author = [[William Shakespeare]] |source = ''[[Julius Caesar (play)|Julius Caesar]]'', Act III, Scene I. |qalign = center }}
{{Quote box |title = Left title, right quote |tstyle = text-align: left; |quote = Cry "Havoc", and let slip the dogs of war. |author = [[William Shakespeare]] |source = ''[[Julius Caesar (play)|Julius Caesar]]'', Act III, Scene I. |qalign = right }}

Custom classes

This parameter should only be used by editors who fully understand how this template works.

The "class=" parameter can be used add a generic CSS class to this template. Some classes are not compatible with other options or require specific options be set to be useful or look good.

Letterhead custom class

The "letterhead" class should be used with , , and either not used or set to "none". Since the upper-left-corner will have a white background, it should only be used on pages with a white background.

Care should be taken that neither the title nor the text extends into the "left corner" portion of the box. To use a blank line for a title, use . To provide a blank line at the bottom of the letterhead, add <br /><br /> to the end of the parameter (or , if was not used).

{{Quote box |class = letterhead |title = &nbsp; |tstyle = text-align: right; |title_bg = none |border=none |author = [[William Shakespeare]] |source = ''[[Julius Caesar (play)|Julius Caesar]]'', Act III, Scene I.<br /><br /> |qalign = right }}

Collapsing text

Sections of text can be collapsed by use of {{hidden begin}} and {{hidden end}}.

The Spider and the Fly

Mary Howitt, 1829

"Will you walk into my parlour?" said the Spider to the Fly,
 'Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I've a many curious things to shew when you are there."
"Oh no, no," said the little Fly, "to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair can ne'er come down again."


"I'm sure you must be weary, dear, with soaring up so high;
Will you rest upon my little bed?" said the Spider to the Fly.
"There are pretty curtains drawn around; the sheets are fine and thin,
And if you like to rest awhile, I'll snugly tuck you in!"
"Oh no, no," said the little Fly,  "for I've often heard it said,
They never, never wake again, who sleep upon your bed!"

Note that, although , the centering is reset after the {{hidden begin}}, since that template applies its own styling. This can be resolved by using in {{hidden begin}} with appropriate markup; in this case:

You can format your text by using wiki markup. This consists of normal characters like asterisks, apostrophes or equal signs which have a special function in the wiki, sometimes depending on their position. For example, to format a word in italic, you include it in two pairs of apostrophes like .

Paragraphs

MediaWiki ignores single line breaks. To start a new paragraph, leave an empty line. You can force a line break within a paragraph with the HTML tag .

Inserting symbols

Symbols and other special characters not available on your keyboard can be inserted in a multitude of ways. Many Operating Systems and browsers allow you to insert special characters through a menu option or Operating System panel. Additionally, you can use the WikiEditor or VisualEditor to insert them into the edit screen.

As a last resort, you can use a special sequence of characters. Those sequences are called HTML entities. For example, the following sequence (entity) &rarr; when inserted will be shown as HTML symbol → and &mdash; when inserted will be shown as an HTML symbol —.


Hover over any character to find out the symbol that it produces. Some symbols not available in the current font will appear as empty squares.
