Usage

Template:Cquote (for Centered pull quote) is a template meant for pull quotes, the visually distinctive text that is already present in the same article.

  • For long quotations, use the HTML <blockquote> element.
  • Pull quotes work best when used with short sentences, and at the start or end of a section, as a hint of the section's content.

Syntax

  1. {{cquote|quote text}}
  2. {{cquote|quote text|author=author or speaker}}
  3. {{cquote|quote text|author=author or speaker|source=title of article, speech, book, etc.}}

Parameters

Parameter 1
text of the quote; use <br /> between paragraphs.
Required
Note: if the quote text contains one or more "=" (equal signs), then the template must be called as {{cquote|1=quote text}} (see "Equals sign in parameter value")
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.
bgcolor
The color of the background.
wide
When set to "yes", the quote expands to the entire width of the page. Useful for small quotes, but may clash with other floating objects, such as infoboxes.

Simple example

{{cquote|quote text}}
To be, or not to be.
