Cite.php method[edit]

  • <ref>Reference text</ref>
  • <ref name="id">Reference text</ref>
    the quotes are only needed if id contains spaces.
  • <ref name="id"/>
    repeated use of same reference may be done as before or in this format with no need to repeat the reference text.
  • <references/>
    inserts the full text of all pending inline citations defined by <ref>, anywhere on the page.

Multiple insertion of the same reference[edit]

References may be cited more than once using <ref name="id"/>. On the Edit page, this is placed at the first insertion point of citation:

<ref name=Perry>Perry's Handbook, Sixth Edition, McGraw-Hill Co., 1984.</ref>

This is placed at the second insertion point of citation:

<ref name=Perry/>

This is placed at the third insertion point of citation:

<ref name=Perry/> ..... and so forth for further insertion points

Single insertion of a reference[edit]

For the single insertion of a reference, the "name" parameter is not needed. On the Edit page, this is placed at the insertion point of citation:

<ref>Excel For Dummies, First Edition, Hungry Minds, Inc., 1980.</ref>

What is produced at the points of insertion[edit]

These are what is produced and note that the reference numbers in blue are automatically generated. Clicking on any one of the reference numbers causes the screen display to scroll down to that reference number in the Reference List section:

First [1] text word referenced to Perry's Handbook
Second [1] text word referenced to Perry's Handbook
Third [1] text word referenced to Perry's Handbook
The only [2] text word referenced to the Excel book.

Producing the reference or footnote list[edit]

On the Edit page, this is placed in the References or the Footnotes section:

<references/>

This is what it produces and note that the list numbers are automatically generated:

  1. 1.0  1.1  1.2 Perry's Handbook, Sixth Edition, McGraw-Hill Co., 1984.
  2. 2 Excel For Dummies, First Edition, Hungry Minds, Inc., 1980.

You may also use a slightly different format if desired, like this:

== References==
<div class="references-small"> <references /> </div>

To generate the following:
