Pull quote examples[edit]

Would it be okay if I rewrite the examples in the documentation to be pull quotes? Right now they're all blockquotes, and might be confusing editors into thinking this template is okay for blockquotes. Matt Fitzpatrick (talk) 20:54, 9 June 2016 (UTC)

Not advised in articles? Huh?[edit]

This page states, "This template can be used for block quotations (long quotes set off from the main text). However, this use is not advised in articles."

So while this page states that this template can be used for block quotations, it's also advising against doing do? What pages is it to be used for if not for articles?

For some articles, especially television and film articles, the quote box is preferred in certain instances because it saves space and is less distracting. Having the quote on the side with a box also allows for more of "choose to read this" feel instead of "do read this" feel. See its use in this section of the Avatar (2009 film) article or in this section of the Captain America: The First Avenger article. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 23:55, 2 March 2017 (UTC)

Setting two short quotes in the one quote box[edit]

Does anyone know whether it's possible to have a quote + source followed by a second quote + source all set inside the same quote box? I'm sure I've seen this happening in a couple of articles, years back, but there's no mention here in the template documentation. Maybe it's only possible using a different template ... Any help would be much appreciated (because I'm utterly useless with templates). Many thanks, JG66 (talk) 06:38, 6 June 2017 (UTC)
