Catechism of the Catholic Church citation template[edit]

Greetings,

I have developed a template to help quickly cite the Catechism of the Catholic Church (found here: Template:CCC), based on the citation style that has become common here at the Catholic Church article.

The template takes the paragraph number, automatically generates a link to the online English version found at <www.vatican.va>. It also automatically formats the citation using the template:cite web internally, and also can display both a single paragraph or a simple range of paragraphs. It also automatically generates a reference name based on the paragraph or range, and will assign the same footnote to citations with identical paragraphs or ranges.

At this point, I see no need to convert well formatted footnotes, but it might be useful when editing portions of the text with bare paragraph numbers, with no link or access date. I have tested the template, and have worked out most kinks, and documented a few workarounds, but I would appreciate anyone who can find the time to test it out and give me feedback. Thanks! --Zfish118 (talk) 00:17, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

Reference Edits[edit]

Please pardon the dozens of minor edits I did today. I attempted to standardize years worth of references, and encountered numerous minor, but difficult errors, due to incompatible templates using similar parameters, etc. Wherever possible, I attempted to perform multiple edits at once, and limit these mass edits to a specific category. --Zfish118 (talk) 17:58, 7 August 2014 (UTC)
