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


This template is exactly like Template:CiteForum, with two exceptions. First, it is not a reference template in the sense that it does not create footnote-styled references. Instead, it creates the same text that {{CiteForum}} would as a non-reference. This is desirable if a certain forum page is the source of the majority of an article, as having the same reference at the end of every sentence. Second, it does not have the "name" parameter, as this only applies to footnote-style references.

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


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


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


The title of the thread.


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


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

Standard parameters

The following parameters are standard across all citation templates.


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


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 ~~~~~.
