It supports author, link, source and title. If title is not provided and link is longer than 32 characters, it is cut at the last forward slash similar to the original plugin.

Quote with author, link and title

Quote with author and a link longer than 32 characters, string is first cut at 32 characters then everything after the last forward slash is removed
