[edit] [{{#invoke:Purge|main}}] Template documentation

{{Quote}} adds a block quote to an article page.

This is easier to type and more wiki-like than the equivalent HTML Template:Tag tags, has additional pre-formatted attribution and source parameters, and contains a workaround for Bugzilla:6200, which means you don't need to type Template:Tag tags manually.

Note: Block quotes do not normally contain quotation marks.


Unnamed (positional) parameters

If you do not provide quoted text, the template generates a parser error message, which will appear in red text in the rendered page.

If any parameter's actual value contains an equals sign (=), you must use named parameters. (The equals sign gets interpreted as a named parameter otherwise.)

If any parameter's actual value contains characters used for wiki markup syntax (such as pipe, brackets, single quotation marks, etc.), you may need to escape it. See Template:! and friends.

Be wary of URLs which contain restricted characters. The equals sign is especially common.
