Templates for citing sources, typically as footnoted references but occasionally in tables or inline.

Note: these should be typed as "Data", not as "citation or reference", as that has been shown to lead to some significant issues with mobile display of these templates on article pages.

To put a template in Category:Citation templates:

  • Use <noinclude>[[Category:Citation templates|{{PAGENAME}}]]</noinclude>. The "<noinclude>" tags are necessary because without them, you end up categorizing all pages using the template in the template category! Please also note the |{{PAGENAME}}.
  • If your template is meant to be used in-line, make sure that there are no line feeds after </noinclude>. If there are, it may work in flowing text, but it will misbehave in bullet lists. You can have as many line feeds as you like between the noinclude tags though:
<noinclude>[[Category:Citation templates|{{PAGENAME}}]]
</noinclude>Text or graphic that is meant to be used in-line
  • Remember that a template can be put in multiple categories if it belongs to them all!
  • Or, if this is not quite the right category, go back to Category:Templates and try to find a better suited subcategory.
