Quote Source Mod v1.4

This Mod adds a new quote attribute, useful when quoting sources from outside your forum.

When using the quote function you now have the option of the source= attribute similar to quote author= attribute. However this will add a clickable link to a URL of your choosing to the Quote From:Name.

For example previously you could type...
[quote author=Authors Name]Quoted text[/quote]
to get
Quote from: Authors NameQuoted text
[quote author=]Quoted text[/quote]
to get
Quote from: http://somesiteurl.comQuoted text

This mod now gives the option to use
[quote source=Authors Name link=Link to URL]Quoted text[/quote]
to get
Quote from: Authors Name
Quoted text

In a quote box, feature not available till mod is installed.

To install, simply upload the entire zip file to the package manager (Admin -> Package Manager -> Download New Packages).
This mod should install under all versions of SMF and under all themes as it only changes source code in the ./Sources/Subs.php

Tested under SMF Versions 1.1.7 - 1.1.10 and 2.0 RC1 - 2.0 RC2

Original idea inspired by yutt's World of Warcraft Blizzard Quote BBC
