This is a tracking category for CS1 citations that use |format= without also providing a url for |url=.

|format= requires |url= (error message hidden by default)

This error occurs when CS1 citations use |format= without also providing a URL for |url=. The |format= parameter is used to specify the file format of a web resource (e.g. PDF, DOC, XLS, etc.). In some cases an editor may have intended to use |type= to specify a kind of document (e.g. hard cover, paperback, pamphlet, etc.) The |format= value is always displayed.

To resolve this error, remove |format= or define |url= or change |format= to |type=.

Pages with this error are automatically placed in Category:Pages using citations with format and no URL.[a]



While most of the Citation Style 1 error messages are visible to all readers, some remain hidden. Editors who wish to see all of the CS1 error messages can do so by updating their common or skin CSS stylesheet to include:

.citation-comment {display: inline !important;} /* show all Citation Style 1 error messages */

Even with this css installed, older pages in Wikipedia '​s cache may not have been updated to show these error messages even though the page is listed in one of the tracking categories. A WP:NULLEDIT will resolve that issue.
