This macro adds a <blockquote> tag to your page. It is used to display a quote or citation. Confluence styles blockquotes individually so it stands out from the other text.
The HTML Tookit for Confluence provides three mor individual styles.
- 1.Edit your page.
- 2.Select “+” => Other macros
- 3.Type in “html” in the Search box
- 4.Select the “HTML Blockquote” macro
The cite attribute (not to be mixed up with the <cite> tag) allows to enter a link to the source of the quote. It is not displayed nor linked to but user agents and search engines can read it.
Select a design for the blockquote. You can select from:
If you need to style your element via an external style sheet, enter all class names here, separated by a blank.
You can add inline styles to your element here, ending with a semicolon, e.g. “color:#ffffff;background-color:#000099;”.
Enter a simple text here that will popup as a tooltip when the mouse is hovered over the element.
You can enter fully specified custom attributes here separated by blanks, e.g.: data-animal=”cat” data-color=”red”.
By default, Confluence will wrap any macro body content into a <p> tag. For custom HTLM tags, this might lead to unwanted results. Check this option to remove the Confluence <p> wrapper.
Type the quote into the body of the macro.
