Author Name, source in "Quotes" or Italics as needed

This template is meant for pull quotes, the visually distinctive repetition of text that is already present on the same page. In most cases, this is not appropriate for use in encyclopedia articles. The Manual of Style guidelines for block quotations recommend formatting block quotations using the {{Quote}} template or the HTML <blockquote> element, for which that template provides a wrapper.

  • Pull quotes work best when used with short sentences, and at the start or end of a section, as a hint of or to help emphasize the section's content.
  • For typical pull quotes, especially those longer than the rest of the paragraph in which they are quoted, {{Pull quote}} provides a borderless quote with decorative quotation marks, and {{Quote frame}} provided a bordered quote. Both span the article width.
  • For very short pull quotes, {{Reduced pull quote}} (with decorative quotation marks) or {{Quote box}} (framed) can be used to set the quote off to either the right or left as in a magazine sidebar. This can be effective on essay pages and WikiProject homepages.

Usage[संपादन]

For actual pull quotes, and poems, this template (a variant of {{Quote frame}}) can be used to present a title, quote, author, and source in a box such as that shown opposite, with options to customise its bordering, background, alignment and other aspects. The box itself is floating div, which, like images, can appear on the right or left or across the entire page. Article text will wrap around the div in the first two cases. This is useful in articles that are short on images and need some graphic-like element, or where an important or interesting quote wants to be presented in a way that sets it off from the surrounding text.

Caution: This is a div-based template, so it may malfunction if indented using wikitext syntax. This is a current limitation of the Wikipedia HTML parsing software.

When used with a poem, it is convenient to wrap the poem's content in <poem>...</poem> tags; these preserve line breaks without having to manually insert <br /> markup.

Custom classes[संपादन]

This parameter should only be used by editors who fully understand how this template works.

The "class=" parameter can be used add a generic CSS class to this template. Some classes are not compatible with other options or require specific options be set to be useful or look good.

Letterhead custom class[संपादन]

The "letterhead" class should be used with |title_bg=none, |border=none, and |bgcolor= either not used or set to "none". Since the upper-left-corner will have a white background, it should only be used on pages with a white background.

Care should be taken that neither the title nor the text extends into the "left corner" portion of the box. To use a blank line for a title, use |title=&nbsp;. To provide a blank line at the bottom of the letterhead, add <br /><br /> to the end of the |source= parameter (or |author=, if |source= was not used).

{{Quote box
 |class = letterhead
 |title =  
 |tstyle = text-align: right;
 |title_bg = none
 |border=none
 |author = [[William Shakespeare]]
 |source = ''[[Julius Caesar (play)|Julius Caesar]]'', Act III, Scene I.<br /><br />
 |qalign = right
}}

 'Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I've a many curious things to shew when you are there."
"Oh no, no," said the little Fly, "to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair can ne'er come down again."

Mary Howitt, 1829

Note that, although |halign=center, the centering is reset after the {{hidden begin}}, since that template applies its own styling. This can be resolved by using |contentstyle= in {{hidden begin}} with appropriate markup; in this case:

{{hidden begin |ta2=center|contentstyle=margin: 1em auto;}}
