Template structure

{{quote| 1 | 2 | 3 |color=silver|size=360%}}


  1. The "color" and "size" parameters refer to the quotation marks—not the text.
  2. If you want to change the color and size variables, you must declare the parameter explicitly (i.e. you must include "color=" or "size=").
  3. If you want to change the size parameter, then you must include a unit of measurement (e.g. %, px, pt).
  4. "If a parameter value contains an equals sign, the parameter name must be declared explicitly." This means that if you want to include a URL in your quote, and if that URL contains an equals sign, then you must explicitly declare the parameter. All that means is that you should add "1=", "2=", or "3=", as appropriate, ahead of your quote text, speaker, or source, like this: {{quote|1=Quote text|2=Person|3=Source|color=silver|size=360%}}
{{Quote|1=I'LL BREAK YOU DEAD!|2=Chris|3=URL with = sign|color=blue|size=500%}}

- Displays:



—Chris, URL with = sign
