FS#1965 REQ Blockquote Support
I would like to request support for block quotes, for bettering quoting of academic or literary sources.
This could be achieved by simply supporting the HTML blockquote tag or in a more robust fashion, but the currently supported file and code tags do not achieve a formatting consistent with plain blockquotes, which would be very nice to have for taking notes, research, etc.
So the question is: is it desired to bundle the blockquote plugin in DokuWiki?
If we'd want to support this out of the box, it would need to be integrated in the "normal" parser/handler/renderer not in a separate plugin. There once existed a DokuWiki version that had <q></q> as block quote syntax (was later replaced by the current syntax).
I close this but if someone really want it, they should submit a pull request and we can reconsider.
