  1. Login to Hindupedia -- the login link is at the bottom right.
  2. Open the Sagely Quotes category page: http://www.hindupedia.com/en/Category:Sagely_Quotes
  3. Enter name of the quote's topic in the input box at the top right of the page. Make sure to prepend the topic name with 'Quotes/'. If that topic already exists, add a number. For example, if I have a quote with the topic being Growth and this is the second quote on the topic. The name to enter would be: Quotes/Growth2
  4. In the article body, replace "Add Your Content Here" with the quote which must be entered in the following format: {{Cquote|Quote|4=Author}}. Replace 'Quote' with the quote and 'Author' with the person who is being quoted.
  5. Make sure that the quote is before the category tag otherwise, it will not render properly on the main page.
