Tolkien Gateway > Council > Quote template in articles


"If you build it, they will come."
― Someone

The quote above is an example of the quote template. I think a good idea might be to add a quote to either the very top or simply somewhere in an article to describe the character/place/etc in the article while providing evidence of it. To use the template simply type:

{{quote|The quote|The person who said it}}

Something like this?
"Short cuts make long delays."
― Pippin
Would it be possible to place the source of the quote directly behind the quote? Like: "I'm the greatest guy on earth! --Earendilyon 15:24, 4 April 2006 (EDT)"?
Hm, I see your point. I don't think that would work very well for multiple lined quotes. Maybe we need a shortquote and longquote template? IMHO though I kind of like the separate line for the source, but that's just me. --Hyarion 15:42, 4 April 2006 (EDT)
