Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]


This template creates a full citation, including the ref tags for certification data from different regions. In essence it wraps <ref></ref> tags around a {{Cite certification}} in a specific manner that allows the reuse of these references. See {{Cite certification}} for the regions supported and parameters required of that template.

The template can also be used for reusing previous references or for reusing references from {{Certification Table Entry}}. If the region/artist/title/type fields are identical, the reference will be reused. If this behaviour is undesirable, use {{Cite certification}} instead.

Usage example

  • Reusing a ref:
The [[Linkin' Park]] album ''[[Meteora]]'' was certified triple Platinum in 2008.{{Certification Cite Ref|region=Germany|artist=Linkin' Park}} 
In the same year, the album ''[[Live in Texas (Linkin Park album)|Live in Texas]]'' was certified triple Gold.{{Certification Cite Ref|region=Germany|artist=Linkin' Park}}

Results in:

The Linkin Park album Meteora was certified triple Platinum in 2008.[1] In the same year, the album Live in Texas was certified triple Gold.[1]

''[[Achtung Baby]]'' has been certified 5× Platinum in Australia.{{Certification Cite Ref|region=Australia|title=Achtung Baby|artist=U2|type=album|certyear=1998}}

{{Certification Table Top}}
{{Certification Table Entry|region=Australia|title=Achtung Baby|artist=U2|type=album|award=Platinum|number=5|certyear=1998}}
{{Certification Table Bottom}}
