Usage

Use {{Talk quote block}} (a.k.a. {{Talkquote}}, {{Talk quote}}, or {{tq2}}) to quote (another's comments, a policy statement, etc.) in a block, on talk pages and noticeboards. It can be safely used after colon-indenting as well (see the #Indenting example, below). For a short inline quote, use {{Talk quote inline}} (a.k.a. {{Talk quotation}} or {{tq}}).

Parameters

Unnamed (positional) parameters
{{talk quote block|text|by}}
  • text must come before by (if by is specified).
Using named parameters
{{talk quote block|text=text|by=by|source=source|ts=ts|oldid=oldid}}
Explanation of named parameters
  • text: The text being quoted (required).
  • by: The author of the text being quoted (not required).
  • source: The source of the text being quoted (not required). Use instead of by when source is not individual user.
  • oldid: The revision ID of the edit introducing the change that was made (not required).
  • ts: The timestamp of the text being quoted (not required unless oldid is specified).

Examples

  • {{talk quote block|some random text|Example}} gives:
  • {{talk quote block|more random text|Example|ts=~~~~~}} gives:
  • {{talk quote block|different random text|Example|ts=~~~~~|oldid=139992}} gives:

Indenting

The following wiki-markup:

Random paragraph of text. [[User:Example|Example]] ([[User talk:Example|talk]]) 09:20, 21 May 2011 (UTC)
:Opening statement by [[User:User|Some other user]].
:{{talk quote block|Quoting an item from random paragraph.}}
:Response to quoted text. [[User:User|Some other user]] ([[User talk:User|talk]]) ~~~~~

Gives the following:

Random paragraph of text. Example (talk) 09:20, 21 May 2011 (UTC)

Opening statement by Some other user.

Quoting an item from random paragraph.

Response to quoted text. Some other user (talk) 09:26, 21 May 2011 (UTC)

Quoting lists

If the text you are quoting is a bulleted or numbered list, the first list item must start on a new line, or it won't be rendered properly. For example:

Wiki-markup Output
Wrong way
{{talk quote block|* Item one
* Item two
}}
First item isn't bulleted correctly:

* Item one

  • Item two
Right way
{{talk quote block|
* Item one
* Item two
}}
All items are bulleted correctly:
  • Item one
  • Item two

If you are using the |text= named parameter, the MediaWiki parser automatically removes line breaks at the start of the text, causing the list to be displayed improperly. To stop this happening, add <nowiki /> after the = sign:

Wiki-markup Output
Wrong way
{{talk quote block|text=
# Item one
# Item two
}}
First item isn't numbered correctly:

# Item one

  1. Item two
Right way
{{talk quote block|text=<nowiki />
# Item one
# Item two
}}
All items are numbered correctly:
  1. Item one
  2. Item two
