This documentation is transcluded from Template:CiteGeneral/doc.

This template is used to cite sources. It is specifically for web sites.

This version has superseded Template:Cite web, though Cite web may still be used.

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.
