How to: Use the "Cite" gadget[edit]

Using the "Cite" gadget

You can also use the Cite gadget to insert the <ref> tags and citation details.

  • Click "Cite" in the toolbar at the top of the edit window.
  • Position the cursor where you want to add a citation.
  • Click the Templates pulldown, then selection the type of source: general webpage, news article, book, or journal article.
  • Fill out the details of the source.
  • Click "Insert".

If you enter a Ref name, you can reuse the same citation elsewhere in the article without needing to re-enter the details. Click "Named references" to re-use a citation that includes a Ref name.
