Quotations
Refer to our Restrictions on Quotation, Citation & Linking for information on what should and shouldn't be quoted on Fanlore.


{{Quotation|
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.}}

{{Quotation2|
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.}}

Optional: you can use this formatting to include a source for the quote:

{{Quotation
| quote = Quoted text goes here.
| source = Source of the quote goes here.}}

Refer to Template:NQuote to learn how to format nested quotes, e.g. Tumblr reblogs.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.

With source:

Quoted text goes here.Source of the quote goes here.



References/Citations
Numbering is generated automatically.
Learn more about adding references to Fanlore pages.
To add a reference to an external source, use this format:

Article text.<ref>[http://www.example.org Link to source webpage], any additional text (e.g. author, date of publication)</ref>

Article text.[1]
To display references, add a dedicated References header (==References==) with the following code - without this, the article will produce an error:

<references/>


  1. ^ Link to source webpage, any additional text (e.g. author, date of publication)

Footnotes/Endnotes To add a footnote, use this format:

Article text.<ref group=note>Text of footnote</ref>

Article text.[note 1]
To display footnotes, add a dedicated Notes section (==Notes==) with the following code - without this, the article will produce an error:

<references group=note />


  1. ^ Text of footnote
