How to Use the Blockquote Shortcode

The blockquote HTML element indicates that the enclosed text is an extended quotation - usually sourced from an external source. Our blockquote shortcode supports the blockquote standard when an external URL is cited as a reference, and basic usage simply supports an indented block of text. This will make sense in a moment.

  The Result

The result of a standard block of text formatted in the blockquote style is shown below. For the sake of content, we've used a quote sourced from our Quotes module. Shortcode of [blockquote][myquotes p="yes"][/blockquote] returns the following:

"You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off you." - Maya Angelou

The content has formatted inside what's called a 'div' tag since no external URL reference was cited, so it's not a true blockquote according to published standards . From an SEO perspective, and in a way that supports appropriate attribution where citing a source is required, we may add the cite attributes to our blockquote shortcode, and this will return the content inside blockquote tags, while the appearance remains unchanged. The shortcode of [blockquote cite="https://www.beliefmedia.com.au/marketing-progressive-disclosure"]External Text in Here ..[/blockquote]returns the following:

Progressive Disclosure is a psychological principle that states a user is less likely to be overwhelmed by information or a system if only a subset of choices is made available to them. Focused around the notion that approachability and ease of use must take precedence over overchoice in order to improve upon user engagement, progressive disclosure is a discursive psychological principle applied by drip-feeding relevant and selected information into the life of a user in order to improve their understanding of your product or services (i.e. "less is more").

In the second example, appropriate attribution for the text was applied and it complies with best practice SEO (if you're using duplicate content it should be noted as such and appropriately referenced in articles).

  Shortcode Attributes

The available attributes are as follows:

  • width - The width of the blockquote container. Defaults to 580px. Any value less than or equal to 100 is treated as a percentage, so 100 will render as a 'standard' paragraph.
  • margin - The margin applied above and below the container. Defaults to 25px.
  • cite - If the cite attribute is used, blockquote tags will be applied and the URL will be referenced in the code.
  • padding - Internal padding. Redundant attribute that generally shouldn't be used. Used width and margin instead.
  • line_height - Defaults to 1.4. One of the commonly altered attributes.
  • font_size - Defaults to 1.0 (current front size). One of the commonly altered attributes.

An example with the line_height and font_size attribute altered would be constructed as follows: [blockquote cite="https://www.bel .. ure" line_height="1.3" font_size="0.9"] .. [/blockquote].

If you define default blockquote values in Yabber (width, font_size, and line_height), these become fixed values and cannot be altered with shortcode.

  Default Blockquote Values in Yabber

As just noted, if blockquote values are defined in Yabber, these values become global in nature. You will find the blockquote panel in the 'Plugin' menu within the 'Website' module.

  Applying Rate Placeholder Text

As with most of our textbox-style blocks, you may include Rate Placeholders to include the lowest rate of a particular type. For this reason, the results are cached for up to two days, although chancing the text or any attribute value will force new data.

  General Shortcodes

Yabber includes dozens of shortcodes that may be applied in posts and pages to return different types of content. The shortcodes listed here are very general in nature and are not usually associated with a large module.

The blockquote HTML element indicates that the enclosed text is an extended quotation - usually sourced from an external source. Our blockquote shortcode supports the blockquote standard when an external URL is cited as a reference, and basic usage simply supports an indented block of text. This will make sense in a moment.
