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.

Three options for usage

Option 1 (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}}

Multiple Use Footnote - Example: Multiple Use Footnote

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

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

(Only needed once per article)<references/> under the Notes heading; exactly the same as to make a single-use note.

Content

Lorem ipsum.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet.

References

  • general reference 1
  • general reference 2

Option 3 (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: Help:Multiple Use Footnote

  1. <ref name=foo>text of note</ref> at each in-text place.
  1. Alternatively <ref name=foo /> A self-closing tag on every use after name=foo has been defined.

(Only needed once per article)<references/> under the Notes heading; exactly the same as to make a single-use note.
