Template:Rquote/doc

From RationalWiki
Jump to: navigation, search


{{Rquote}} is a variant of the {{Cquote}} quotation template, intended for very short pull quotes of 50 words or less. It results in a floating quote with the article text wrapping around it, like an image.

For longer pull quotes of 50 words or more (in a similar style), use Cquote. For long quotations in the text, the Wiki Manual of Style recommends using the HTML <blockquote> element.


Usage

Align quote box to the right:

{{Rquote|right|Quote text|Origin of quote|Cited source}}

Align quote box to the left:

{{Rquote|left|Quote text|Origin of quote|Cited source}}

Without the first parameter the box defaults to the right. "Center" is not a valid option for this template.

You should not put quotation marks around the quote. This template serves as a block quote to separate it from the text instead.

Parameters

  1. Alignment (left, right).
  2. The Quote Text
  3. Source (who said it?)
  4. Citation (where was it said?)
