Optional Title

Insert awesome quote here.

--source

This is Quotebox, as stolen shamelessly from Wikipedia's "Quote box" template. This is different from Template:Pullquote in that it is intended to appear alongside the main article text. That means this is actually a pull quote, whereas Pullquote does not support wrapping text around itself and thus is not a pull quote. Oops.

However, Quotebox also uses a more "tasteful" and low-footprint style than traditional pull quotes, whereas Pullquote uses the traditional appearance of actual pull quotes. (Confused yet?) Quotebox is also a far more versatile and less finicky quotation template.

Basic parameters

  • title = Optional title to appear at the top of the quote box.
  • quote = The quote or text to be displayed in the box.
  • source = Optional source of the quote (author, publication, etc.).

Main box styling

  • align: Alignment of the quote box on the page—left / right / center / none. Defaults to right alignment. Using align=none will remove word wrapping.
  • width: The width of the quote box. Defaults to the width of the quote included, unless "|align=center" is used, in which case the width will default to 100%.
  • border: The width of the quote box border. Defaults to 1px. Remember to include 'px' or 'em' to specify the correct width.
  • fontsize: The fontsize of the quote box text. Defaults to 88%.
  • bgcolor: The RGB background color of the box. Defaults to #F9F9F9 (light gray).
  • style: A generic CSS style parameter. Entries in this parameter supersede any duplicates in the preceding parameters.

Title styling

  • title_bg: The RGB background color of the title. Defaults to #F9F9F9 (light gray).
  • title_fnt: The title font color. Defaults to black.
  • tstyle: A generic CSS style parameter. Entries in this parameter supersede any duplicates in the preceding title parameters.

Quote styling

  • qalign: Alignment of the quote element—left / right / center. Defaults to left.
  • qstyle: A generic CSS style parameter. Entries in this parameter supersede any duplicates in the preceding quote parameters.
  • quoted: If this parameter evaluates to true (is not 0, false, or empty) the quote box will enclose the quote in fat-quotes. Use judiciously, and read the Manual of Style.

Source styling

  • salign: Alignment of the source element—left / right / center. Defaults to the value of qalign.
  • sstyle: A generic CSS style parameter. Entries in this parameter supersede any duplicates in the preceding source parameters.
