Admin,

Most quotes are made by some really interesting people.

I know you provide a short excerpt from the wiki page.
But, to know more about that person , we need to open a new tab and find the author of the quote on Wikipedia .

It would be really helpful if you could make the name of the author of the quote into a direct hyperlink so that it opens the author's detailed wikipedia page in another tab .

Example :

"Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity."

George S. Patton (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_S._Patton)


Click on George S. Patton to go to his wiki page.

Everybody.. yea or nay ?

Spellbinder, I just fixed that for you. Simply click on the blue hypertext with the word "More" and a downward arrow. This will give you an expanded but incomplete wikipedia entry. At the bottom of this, you will see "Source:Wikipedia.org" Click on the red hypertext "Wikipedia.org" You will be promptly linked to a new page with the full Wikipedia entry!

Thanks for the info Bansai. I never noticed that link .
I had clicked on "More" but hadn't noticed the "wikipedia.org" link.

I feel very sheepish for the post.
