Merge and Redirect to WP:INTREF[edit]

It looks as though this page is beginning to get out of date. The pages Help:Introduction to referencing with VisualEditor and Help:Introduction to referencing with Wiki Markup contain more up to date info on the current editing interface. I suggest merging in any information from this page that is missing from those pages and redirecting to reduce the number of pages in need of maintenance.

citing sources should be easier, by a dedicated text input field[edit]

When I click on the edit tab at the top of the page to add to an article and then click on "publish changes" to update the page a "summarise your edit" box pops up. I think there should be an extra text input field for me to cite the source of my content. The current system of tags [1] doesn't encourage me as it's too fiddly, do those tags go in the article?

@Adrian816: this is the talk page for discussing improvements to the page Help:Referencing for beginners. I think that you are looking for the Help desk. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 21:18, 10 March 2018 (UTC)
