Usage

Provides a simple wrapper for (up to 9 consecutive) <ref name="foo" /> citation tags that minimizes visual impact on the text, which along with the simpler syntax increases code readability and editability. For example:

usage notes
{{r|ref_name}} Adds a reference like foo,[1] equivalent to <ref name="ref_name" />. This can be combined, like {{r|ref_name|another|more|ref4}} (equivalent to <ref name="ref_name" /><ref name="another" /><ref name="more" /><ref name="ref4" />).
{{r|ref_name|group=bar}} Adds a reference like foo[bar 1] for a reference in the bar group (for pages with multiple reference sections). The group applies to all references in the {{r}} call.
{{r|ref_name|page1=100}} Adds a reference like foo,[1]:100 with a page number (page1 applies to the first reference, page2 to the second, etc.). This is only needed for multiple references to different pages in the source.

You should either use this template, or <ref> tags, on a page; mixing them may lead to undesirable results.


Examples

Comparison to <ref>

unwrapped For example, fact<ref name="bacelieri" /><ref name="cochrane2006" /><ref name="emed_hpv" /> and fact.<ref name="emed_plantar" /><ref name="hipusa" /><ref name="kunnamo" />
wrapped with {{r}} For example, fact{{r|bacelieri|cochrane2006|emed_hpv}} and fact.{{r|emed_plantar|hipusa|kunnamo}}

Pages

By passing page numbers to the parameters page1 through page9, this template will add a superscripted page number to the reference. Using the code {{r|ref_name|bar|baz|page1=20|page3=5–12}}, one can generate references like these.[1]:20[2][3]:5–12 The ref names must be defined, normally in a references section (as demonstrated below):

{{reflist|refs=
<ref name="ref_name">Foo.</ref>
<ref name="bar">Bar.</ref>
<ref name="baz">Baz.</ref>
}}

Resulting in:

  1. ^ a b c Foo.
  2. ^ Bar.
  3. ^ Baz.
