• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Template documentation (for the above template, sometimes hidden or invisible) [view] [edit] [history] [refresh]


{{Quote}} adds a block quotation to an article page.

This is easier to type and more wiki-like than the equivalent HTML <blockquote>...</blockquote> tags, and has additional pre-formatted attribution and source parameters.

Note: Block quotes do not normally contain quotation marks.


Unnamed (positional) parameters

{{quote|phrase|person|source}} This markup will fail if any parameter contains an equals sign (=).

Numbered (positional) parameters


Named parameters




{{Quote|text=Cry "Havoc" and let slip the dogs of war.|sign=[[William Shakespeare]]|source=''[[Julius Caesar (play)|Julius Caesar]]'', act III, scene I}}

Cry "Havoc" and let slip the dogs of war.
William ShakespeareJulius Caesar, act III, scene I


If you do not provide quoted text, the template generates a parser error message, which will appear in red text in the rendered page.

To provide line breaks in the quote, use <br /> or one of its variants. Do NOT use the Enter key, either with or without the break code, as this will extenuate the quote and render it difficult to read.

If any parameter's actual value contains an equals sign (=), you must either use named parameters or replace the equals sign with {{=}}. (The equals sign gets interpreted as a named parameter otherwise.) All The Tropes prefers using {{=}}. See Template:=.

If any parameter's actual value contains characters used for wiki markup syntax (such as pipe, brackets, single quotation marks, etc.), you may need to escape it. See Template:! and friends.

Be wary of URLs which contain restricted characters. The equals sign is especially common.
