Trying to add a multi-use reference inside a notation group

I get an error message at History of role-playing video games when I'm trying to move a long paranthetical passage to a group notation as it common practice, but since it contains a multi-use reference I am getting issues with it not working correctly.Jinnai 18:06, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

Fixed The help page documents this error as related to nesting references and directs you to WP:REFNEST. ---— Gadget850 (Ed) talk 23:32, 10 January 2011 (UTC)


Suggest add to article: text "References" after template

Since need to add "==References==" after pasting in the {{Reflist}} tag. suggest to replace

"The most obvious and simplest issue is when the reference list markup is missing. Simply add {{Reflist}} to the end of the article under the section title "References", usually between "See also" and "External links"."

with

"The most obvious and simplest issue is when the reference list markup is missing. Simply add something like
{{Reflist}}
==References==
to the end of the article under the section title "References", usually between "See also" and "External links"."

Good idea, though the sequence should be:
==References==
{{reflist}}

Because the section name may not always be References, see WP:FNNR. I expanded Help:Cite errors/Cite error refs without references a bit. ---— Gadget850 (Ed) talk 06:48, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

Same as= How to these articles in this category to show? or The article appeared in this category in any way? (have used templates or magic words?). Sorry because my English is bad --minhhuy*= (talk) 09:22, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
If you have a n article appearing in this category, it is because is is generating an error as describe by Help:Cite errors/Cite error references no key or Help:Cite errors/Cite error references no text. ---— Gadget850 (Ed) talk 12:58, 1 February 2011 (UTC)

Leser v. Garnett

  • The previous bullet outline is incorporated into a narrative taken from the previous editor’s citation. The introduction and conclusion are the same.
  • The arguments of both sides are included in the revision, so that the federal courts do not appear arbitrary in dismissing the petitioners’ plea.
  • The Republican-appointed Chief Justice Taft and the Democrat-appointed Justice Brandeis who wrote the opinion in the unanimous decision are pictured.
  • Inline citations to the Constitution are incorporated to allow for ready reference while reading the article without leaving the section.

Not sure wht you wanted here, but I added the markup to your user page to make the reference list show. See Wikipedia:Referencing for beginners for more help. ---— Gadget850 (Ed) talk 03:27, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
