This simple module contains a text area for your quote and outputs your quote in any assigned module position within <BLOCKQUOTE> tags.

Optional parameters include attributing the quote to the author/speaker output within <CITE> tags and adding a URL to the original quote if it was taken form an online source using the cite attribute. There are also options to position the module on your page position more accurately and you can opt for the module suffix feature to style with CSS.

All releases have alliterative code names, following the same format as Ubuntu releases, using an adjective and an animal. The first release is Angry Antelope. Names follow in alphabetical order to make it easier to tell the latest release.

What you have had to say about all this...

Thank you for providing this Joomla extension. 

I have just installed it and it works very well. I would like to know if there is any documentation about styling the quote and the extra positioning properties that you mentioned in this article.
