The template uses a HTML anchor of #Reference-Mathworld-(article name). Thus, to reference a MathWorld article entitled "Gigantic Prime" using Harvard style references, use ([[#Reference-Mathworld-Gigantic Prime|Weisstein]]) which will display as: (Weisstein). When clicked, the link is to the reference in the following example.

Example

  • Code: {{MathWorld |title=Gigantic Prime |id=GiganticPrime}}
Output: Weisstein, Eric W., "Gigantic Prime", MathWorld.
  • Code: {{MathWorld |title=Gigantic Prime |id=GiganticPrime|title2=Prime Number|id2=PrimeNumber}}
Output: Weisstein, Eric W., "Gigantic Prime", and "Prime Number", MathWorld.
