Description Morten Blaabjerg 2006-09-07 21:20:42 UTC
When including a template with a longer text-variable, separated with line breaks, the 
line breaks are ignored when the template is rendered.

{{Template_Quote|Quote of someone saying... bla bla

New paragraph.. bla bla|Author's name}}

I haven't been able to find a bug reporting this, so I'll create a new one.

I don't know if this is a deliberate feature or if there is a proper template workaround, 
without adding excessive <p></p> tags around each paragraph (this works as a workaround, 
although not a very smart one).

The error is with <blockquote>, not templates.

Alright, thanks. Didn't figure that out.
