Trouble with template

The Template is putting square-brackets around the title of the entry (e.g, in this instance at the Hajj#References). Is that the expected behavior? Jason Quinn (talk) 00:08, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

why such style deviation from "cite book" and cite news", etc. format style?

1. why is location field italicized? 2. why is year of publication not after author? 3. why are commas used as delimiters instead of period? 4. i'm sure there are other nuances that are not harmonized with other widely used citation templates on wikipedia.--96.232.126.111 (talk) 23:01, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

Update to citation/core

Sandbox version updated to use :

{{cite DVD-notes}}

{{cite DVD-notes |title=Terminator 2 Ultimate Edition DVD |titlelink=Terminator 2: Judgment Day |titleyear=1991 |director=[[James Cameron]] |format=Liner notes |publisher=[[Artisan Entertainment]] |location=Hollywood, California |publisherid=FMD2402 |year=2000}}


Terminator 2 Ultimate Edition DVD (Liner notes) (Media notes). James Cameron. Hollywood, California: Artisan Entertainment. 2000 [1991]. FMD2402. 

{{cite DVD-notes/sandbox}}

{{cite DVD-notes/sandbox |title=Terminator 2 Ultimate Edition DVD |titlelink=Terminator 2: Judgment Day |titleyear=1991 |director=[[James Cameron]] |format=Liner notes |publisher=[[Artisan Entertainment]] |location=Hollywood, California |publisherid=FMD2402 |year=2000}}

Terminator 2 Ultimate Edition DVD (Liner notes). James Cameron. Hollywood, California: Artisan Entertainment. 2000 [1991]. FMD2402.


{{cite DVD-notes/sandbox}} using |last=, |first= and |directorlink=

{{cite DVD-notes/sandbox  |last=Cameron |first=James |directorlink=James Cameron |title=Terminator 2 Ultimate Edition DVD |titlelink=Terminator 2: Judgment Day |titleyear=1991 |type=Liner notes |publisher=[[Artisan Entertainment]] |location=Hollywood, California |publisherid=FMD2402 |year=2000}}

Cameron, James (2000) [1991]. Terminator 2 Ultimate Edition DVD (Liner notes). {{{director}}}. Hollywood, California: Artisan Entertainment. FMD2402.


This makes this template compatible with Citation Style 1:

  • Adds full date parameters including |month= and |year=
  • Adds anchor using |ref=
  • Adds more standard author parameters |last= and |first=
  • Adds |trans_title= for non-English titles
  • Adds IDs such as JSTOR, bibcode, DOI, ISBN and more
  • Liner notes is in parenthesis
