Gilgamesh: Enough expository banter!
This talk page is used for discussing improvements to the page "Quote". It is not the place for general discussion or sharing stories about the topic of this article.

Just browsed the code. It seems to call on another template, which is non-existant here, so I'm guessing it was just copy/pasted directly from Wookieepedia. So this is a note to everyone!! If you ever copy/paste a template directly from somewhere else, make sure you remember to copy/paste the templates it calls, else, it could result in the template not working properly. --Hecko X 14:00, 25 November 2006 (UTC)

New design?[edit source]

Could we get a new design for this quote box? It looks a bit out of place. --Auron Kaizer 15:46, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

I don't know how it could be improved. Any ideas? Diablocon 15:47, 11 March 2007 (UTC)
Coloured font? A 1px border and coloured background? Ehhh... soundclip of it being said, in games that feature voices..? The last on would be hard, but imagine how cool it would be. --Hecko X 17:00, 11 March 2007 (UTC)
Very cool, but it would require us to hunt down the soundclips, which is very tough. Maybe even something as simple as clicking the quote, and being linked to the scene itself? Diablocon 17:09, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

New design? II[edit source]

It would be cooler still if we can incorporate portraits into the quote. BLUER一番 01:56, July 17, 2010 (UTC)

TBH, I think it doesn't need to be embellished anymore than it is. It clearly displays the quote and the person that says it.
Portraits would probably look out of place in its current format. And if we were to change the format, quotes without images would probably look better as they do now.
But I don't know. 03:25, July 17, 2010 (UTC)

Font[edit source]

Have the font changed? Not only it doesn't look well with Arial (or whatever we have for our font) it also looks tiny. Personally, I prefer the older version.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 14:21, December 19, 2014 (UTC)

Could you post a screenshot of what you're talking about? It looks fine in my browser.

It shows me Times New Roman, but it doesn't really sit well with me. It clashes (at least for me) with how the text (and I use FFVI font for header display; like it doesn't clash at all ;P I'm just weird.).—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 19:01, December 19, 2014 (UTC)
It shouldn't have a different font, unless there's something weird with your browser: What browser are you running? Any addons or extensions that might affect styles? —ProtonZero[talk] 19:47, December 19, 2014 (UTC)
Currently, Opera. I don't think that the addons and extensions I have may affect it (I have AdBlock Plus, Hover Free, and XKit).—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 19:54, December 19, 2014 (UTC)
My best guess is that Opera has default CSS for the Q tag that makes it serif. —ProtonZero[talk] 20:08, December 19, 2014 (UTC)
That would sound like a good explanation. After all, even though Wikia uses selector resetters to stop that kind of thing mattering, they don't account for font-family.
But I have an uptodate Opera and that's not it. A standard Opera installation doesn't do that. JBed (talk) 22:43, December 19, 2014 (UTC)
My suggestion for Kaimi would be to try another browser to see if it's still weird, and if not, to reinstall Opera. —ProtonZero[talk] 04:01, December 20, 2014 (UTC)

Italicising quotes[edit source]

Why aren't we using italics for quotes anymore? Our "quote" class in css even italicises them when that's used in tables. Why not here?--Magicite-ffvi-ios.png Technobliterator TC 23:19, December 23, 2014 (UTC)

They're not italicised in quotes in tables. This template uses the <q> tag, and both the <q> tag and .quote are bound to the same rules. JBed (talk) 23:26, December 23, 2014 (UTC)

Unattributed quotes[edit source]

If no quote source is input to this template, it still displays "--{{{2}}}" at the end of the quote (see Alphascape V2.0 for an example). Is there a way to make that conditional on the field input? -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 00:42, June 1, 2020 (UTC)

You shouldn't add a quote if you can't attribute it to anything.--Magicite-ffvi-ios.png Technobliterator TC 00:47, June 1, 2020 (UTC)
