Help:Cite errors/Cite error group refs without references[edit]

The page Help:Cite errors/Cite error group refs without references does not explain where the {{reflist|group=$1}} goes to fix the problem.

The page says There are <ref group=$1> tags on this page, but the references will not show without a {{reflist|group=$1}} template (see the help page).

My concern arose from the Multivitamin article, but there are at least 30 articles with this cite error today. Updating the article would be the best way to answer my concern.--Dthomsen8 (talk) 21:25, 14 March 2019 (UTC)

@Dthomsen8: It goes wherever you like, provided that it's no earlier than the last note - that is, the <ref group=...>...</ref> for the named group. If there's only one note, the reflist might go at the bottom of the same section. If there are several notes, the reflist is often put just before or just after the main list of references; and in the case of the article that you mention, I see no reason not to do this. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 23:29, 14 March 2019 (UTC)
