🐺 Blockquote
Present quotes with or without attribution and links

I found this post1 on how to make fancier blockquotes.

Port of the Octopress blockquote plugin at

It supports author, link, source and title. If title is not provided and link is longer than 32 characters, it is cut at the last forward slash similar to the original plugin.

It can be used as follows:

This is a simple quote.

Quote with author #

This is a quote with only an Author named Author2.

Quote with author and source #

This is a quote from Author3 and source “source.”
This is a quote from Author4 and links to
This is a quote from Author5 and links to with title “Google.”

with a link longer than 32 characters, the string is first cut at 32 characters
then everything after the last forward slash is removed

This is a quote from Author5 and links to which is longer than 32 characters.
And this is a new line in the quote with the HTML br tag.
