Usage

Use this template to create a reference list in an article with a small font. Note that there is no consensus that small font size should always be used for all references; when normal-sized font is more appropriate on an article, use <references /> instead.

If used with no parameters, it will produce a reference list with a single column.

Options for usage

Only specific references — Example: Specific References

==Content==
Lorem ipsum.<ref>Source name, access date, etc.</ref>

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet.<ref>Source name, access date, etc.</ref>

== References ==
{{reflist}}

General references - Example: General References

==See also==
*[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Footnotes Wikipedia:Footnotes](Further details on this method, specific to wikipedia)
*http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Footnotes (General MediaWiki footnotes documentation)

==References==
{{refbegin}}
* general reference 1
* general reference 2
{{refend}}

Both specific and general references — Example: Specific and General References

==Content==
Lorem ipsum.<ref>Source name, access date, etc.</ref>

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet.<ref>Source name, access date, etc.</ref>

Lorem ipsum.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet.

==References==
{{reflist}}

{{refbegin}}
* general reference 1
* general reference 2
{{refend}}


Multiple Use Footnote - Example: Multiple Use Footnote

==Content==
<ref name=foo>text of note</ref> at each in-text place.

Alternatively <ref name=foo /> A self-closing tag on every use after name=foo has been defined.

==References==
<references/>
