Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

The following template description is not displayed when the template is inserted in an article.

Goal

This template adds a block quotation with border to an article page.

This is easier to type and more wiki-like than the equivalent HTML blockquote tags, and has additional pre-formatted attribution and source parameters.

Usage

Using unnamed parameters

{{quotation|text|author|title|source}}

Using numbered parameters

{{quotation|1=|2=|3=|4=}}

Parameters

All parameters are optional, except text or 1.

1, text
Text to be quoted.
2, author
Name or nickname of author.
3, title
Title
4, source
The source to the quoted text. Preferably using {{cite web}} or an URL.

Known issues

When using the template with unnamed parameters, an equal sign (=) will break the template. The workaround is to either use <nowiki>=</nowiki> or the {{=}} template.
