Usage[edit]

This template should be placed in the References section of an article if the article incorporates text from a source that is not under copyright and there is no source specific template listed in Category:Attribution templates.

This template takes one parameter, the name of the source, along with any other details which are needed to identify the work:

{{Source-attribution|source and other details}}

Examples[edit]

A text string can be passed as the parameter:

{{Source-attribution|''Handbook to the cathedrals of England'', by Richard John (1869)}}

or a citation template, like {{cite book}} can be used:

{{Source-attribution| {{cite book |last1=King |first1=Richard John |title=Handbook to the cathedrals of England |volume=Vol. 1, Part 2. |year=1869 |publisher=J. Murray}} }}

These would display as:

This article incorporates text from a publication now in the public domain: Handbook to the cathedrals of England, by Richard John (1869)
This article incorporates text from a publication now in the public domain: King, Richard John (1869). Handbook to the cathedrals of England. Vol. 1, Part 2. J. Murray. 

Hidden category[edit]

This template includes a hidden category—Category:Source attribution—which does not appear at the bottom of an article page but does contain any article page that contains this template.
