    How to credit

    If I want to write something that was on another article and credit it, is it right to do e.g.:

    Oranges are good for humans. Oranges contain vitamin C and many minerals. credit: orangeisgoodforyou.com

    I usually write "quoted from".

    Not a teacher.

    ... and, because sites tend to come and go, it's sensible to give the date when you last visited it.

    And surely you're going to put quotation marks around the material you've quoted?

    Re: How to credit

    May I put a dash sign after the quotation mark? I sometimes do so.

    You can, but it's best to follow a style guide for the type of article you're writing.

    Re: How to credit

    You don't need to write 'credit'. Just put the name of the website in brackets.

    Is it correct to write "the above screenshot was taken from orangeisgoodforyou.com"?
