Help:References

From Nokia Developer Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This Help topic explains how to add "formal references" to a page. Note that there are also brief instructions in the Wiki Editor Help, which you see whenever you edit a page.

Note.pngNote: "Formal" references aren't commonly used in this wiki. They can be particularly useful when importing documents that already have them - for example Eliminating Memory Leaks in Symbian C++ Code#References.

Usage

Place <ref name="thisuniquereferencename">...</ref> tags to surround the text you want in the reference, at the point of first reference. The name parameter is optional, but if it exists can be used to link to the same reference multiple times, for example <ref name="thisuniquereferencename" />

Place <references /> whereever you want the list of references to be displayed. This is, by convention, done in at the end of an article under a "References" heading.

For more information see: Extension:Cite#Usage (Extension Help)

Examples

The following example shows reference usage wiki format, followed by how it renders:

This is some example text with a reference<ref name="exampletext">This is the reference
text that for the reference "exampletext"</ref>. It also has an unnamed
reference<ref>This is the reference text for the un-named reference.
It is only used once, so the ''name''parameter is not required</ref>.
Lastly it has a second reference<ref name="exampletext" /> to the original ''exampletext'' reference.
 
All references are listed below using
<references />


This is some example text with a reference[1]. It also has an unnamed reference[2]. Lastly it has a second reference[1] to the exampletext reference.

All references are listed below using

  1. 1.0 1.1 This is the reference text that for the reference "exampletext"
  2. This is the reference text for the un-named reference. It is only used once, so the nameparameter is not required
