Better Blockquotes

Better Blockquotes provides an way to easily add citations to quotes using the WordPress editor. Simply click on the blockquote button, and a pop-up will provide fields for quote, citation and citation link. Developers can extend the plugin to support various blockquote classes.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does the blockquote markup look like?

This is the quote.
<cite><a href="#">Citation</a></cite>

Why doesn't my blockquote look good when displayed?

This plugin doesn't add any styling for blockquotes. Contact the author of your theme to make sure they support blockquote markup.

Blockquote Classes/Styles

Developers can optionally add style options to the pop-up. Any selected styles will apply a class directly to the <blockquote> element.

function prefix_blockquote_classes() {
    $options = array(
        'class-1' => __( 'Style One', 'better-blockquotes' ),
        'class-2' => __( 'Style Two', 'better-blockquotes' ),
    return $options;
add_filter( 'betterblockquotes_classes', 'prefix_blockquote_classes' );
