Template:Reflist

Template documentation


This citation template provides formatting and organizational features for footnotes. It encapsulates the ‎<references /> tag used by the cite.php MediaWiki extension to show the list of references as defined by ‎<ref> tags. It adds support for a reduced font size, columns, groups.

If you don't use any of the additional features, then it produces the same output as the simpler and slightly faster ‎<references /> tag.

ParametersEdit

  • First unnamed parameter:
    • column-count: a natural number specifying fixed columns into which the reference list is to be rendered. Example: |2|.
    • column-width: a typographic unit of measurement such as em, specifying the width for the reference list columns. Example: |30em|.
  • refs: used with named references (e.g., ‎<ref name=name />); it specifies a list of some or all named references used in the article.
  • group: identifies by name the subset of references to be rendered; the value should correspond to that used inline, e.g., {{Reflist|group=groupname}} renders all references with groupname as the group name (‎<ref group=groupname>).
  • liststyle: specifies the style used when the reference list is enumerated; if none is specified, the default is to render a numbered list.

ExampleEdit

Lorem.<ref>ipsum</ref><ref>dolor</ref><ref>sit</ref><ref>amet</ref>
Consectetur.<ref>adipisicing</ref><ref>elit, sed</ref><ref>do</ref>
