Template documentation[edit] [purge]
This documentation is transcluded from Template:CiteForum/doc.
Template:CiteForum invokes Module:References using Lua.

Usage

{{CiteForum |author= |url= |title= |forum= |postdate= |accessdate=~~~~~ |notes= |name= }}

Author

The author of the post. Include "Mod" prefixes, such as "Mod Mark" instead of simply "Mark".

URL

Archive the thread at WebCite first, then be sure to include the full URL, including the http://.

Title

The title of the thread.

Forum

Optional. The forum where the thread is/was located. Defaults to RuneScape.

Postdate

The date the post was added. If the post was edited, use the most recent edit date.

Accessdate

Leave this field as ~~~~~, it will automatically be converted to the proper date and time format. When verifying the reference, delete whatever is provided and change it to ~~~~~.

Standard parameters

The following parameters are standard across all citation templates.

Name

Optional. If you want to use this reference more than once, you must name it the first time you use it, then whenever you want to use it again, add {{NamedRef|name}} wherever you want it to re-appear.

Notes

Optional. This parameter allows you to add text beginning one space after end end of the citation. Having no formatting (meaning you will have to format it yourself), this area can be used for anything you require.

Group

Optional. This can be used to put the reference into a specific group, to separate it from other types of reference. See here for more on reference groups.
