Reference previewing[edit]

I agree no direct method of seeing how a footnote added when editing a section will appear in the reference section at the end of an article. One, less than perfect method, is:

  1. temporarily add a <references/> tag at the bottom of the section being edited,
  2. Click on "show preview" to see how it will appear
  3. Remember to remove the <references/> tag before clicking on "Save page".


The footnote that you added to Staphylococcus aureus can be improved in a number of ways:

  • The original:
  • Firstly use of enclosing single square bracket will show the page title as alternative text to the url address
  • Alternatively, use a citation template to do all the formating for us, in this case {{cite news}} serves our purpose.
    • So, from the BBC webpage we can fill in: {{cite news |author= |title=Essential oils 'combat superbug' |url=http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/manchester/6471475.stm |publisher=BBC News |date=20 March 2007 |accessdate=2008-04-15 }}
    • Displayed as: "Essential oils 'combat superbug'". BBC News. 20 March 2007. Retrieved 2008-04-15.

Edits to Theodore Kaczynski[edit]

Hi Andreas,

Thanks for your edits to Theodore Kaczynski, shown in the history. Please could you remember to use edit summaries as per WP:FILLINEDITSUMMARY when you edit an article so it is easier for everyone to understand the changes you have made, especially on a protected article where there is conflict such as this one?

WP:NOADS[edit]

Please do not advertise products, as you did twice for VMWare on Talk:Windows Virtual PC. Also realize that Wikipedia isn't a forum, and that includes tech support discussion.Jasper Deng (talk) 00:20, 13 January 2011 (UTC)
