- Lines and paragraphs are automatically recognized. The <br /> line break, <p> paragraph and </p> close paragraph tags are inserted automatically. If paragraphs are not recognized simply add a couple blank lines.
Quoted content can be placed between [quote] tags in order to be displayed as an indented quote. Every [quote] tag must have a corresponding [/quote] tag. For example:
[quote]This is a simple quote.[/quote] is displayed as:
This is a simple quote.
Additionally, there is an optional attribute which allows quotes to specify the original author.
[quote=Mr. Drupal]This is a quote with an attribution line.[/quote]
is displayed as:
This is a quote with an attribution line.
Finally, multiple [quote] tags can be nested within one another. Just remember that every [quote] tag must have a corresponding [/quote] tag.
[quote]I think she says it best...
[quote=Ms. Quotation]This is a quote nested within another quote.[/quote]
but you can't argue with
[quote=Ms. Reply]The more quotes, the merrier.
Just don't get too carried away.[/quote]
And I have nothing more to say.[/quote] is displayed as:
I think she says it best...
but you can't argue with
This is a quote nested within another quote.
And I have nothing more to say. The more quotes, the merrier. Just don't get too carried away.
