Template:Wp/nys/Quote

(Redirected from Template:Wp/nys/quote)


UsageEdit

For quotes, this template provides a centered, borderless quote, with scalable decorative quotation marks, and optional attribution of the source of the quote. It can be used with or without the names of the parameters.

SyntaxEdit

ParametersEdit

Parameter 1, a.k.a. quote
text of the quote; use Template:Wp/nys/Tag around second or subsequent paragraphs.
Required
Note: if the quote text contains a = (equal sign), then the template must be called with a named parameter for the content, e.g. {{Wp/nys/Cquote|quote=quote text}} Template:Wp/nys/Crossref.
author
Name of the person that wrote or spoke the text being quoted. Can include wiki syntax.
source
Source of the quote (publication title, speech, etc.). Can include wiki syntax. Can be used without Template:Wp/nys/Para (e.g. for a scripture, law, or other source without an author per se)
bgcolor
The color of the background.
float
Defaults to center, but can also be right or left. Usually used with Template:Wp/nys/Para or so (otherwise for quotes longer than one line on the rendered page, the float will have no useful effect).
width
for example Template:Wp/nys/Para
qcolor
color of quotemarks, for example Template:Wp/nys/Para for a red color (only for use in WP:Signpost, and personal pages; do not use in articles, guidelines, etc.)
rtl
set to any non-blank value for quotes that should be rendered from right to left (e.g., Arabic). Adds the necessary dir attribute and reverses the quotes.

Deprecated:

wide
In older versions of the template, when this was set to "yes", the quote expanded to the entire width of the page, which was useful for long quotes. However, it clashed with other floating objects, such as infoboxes, and the template now auto expands and line wraps as needed (full page, or within a Template:Wp/nys/Para constraint).

Simple exampleEdit

{{Wp/nys/Cquote|quote text}}

Template:Wp/nys/Cquote

Sourced exampleEdit

{{Wp/nys/Cquote|Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.
|author=[[Albert Einstein]]
|source=in a letter to his son<ref>[[Walter Isaacson]], ''Einstein: His Life and Universe'' (2007), p. 367.</ref>
}}

Template:Wp/nys/Cquote

Other examplesEdit

{{Wp/nys/Cquote|1=F=ma|author=[[Isaac Newton]]}}

(the 1= is necessary as quote text contains an equal sign) Template:Wp/nys/Cquote


{{Wp/nys/Cquote|1=Thus:
{{in5}}<math>E=mc^2</math>|author=[[Albert Einstein]]}}

(quote text contains an equal sign and math syntax) Template:Wp/nys/Cquote


{{Wp/nys/Cquote|Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.|source=First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States |float=right |width=30%}}

(source with no author; floated right and width-constrained) Template:Wp/nys/Cquote

Note that it will wrap around article text like this. Template:Wp/nys/Lorem


{{Wp/nys/Cquote|Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.|source=First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States |width=50%}}

(same quote, no float, width constraint) Template:Wp/nys/Cquote


{{Wp/nys/Cquote|Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.|source=First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States}}

(same quote, no float, no width setting – for short quote, would use as much of line as necessary, and for longer quotes, full width of page, wrapping for multiple lines.) Template:Wp/nys/Cquote
