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)
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)
Greetings. I believe the title of this page is misleading. It should read "Roman Catholic Church" because the Eastern Orthodox Church is also officially called the "Orthodox Catholic Church". And historically, it was Rome which separated itself away from the historically continuous Christian practices of the rest of Christendom. It is important for readers to know that the Roman Church is not the only Church simply referred to as the "Catholic Church" and it has less claim to historical continuity the Orthodoxy. Therefore, the title is both misleading and presumptive. Ri Osraige (talk) 16:01, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
