Ok, once you've written something (usually a not-too-long paragraph, otherwise I'd say every time you start a sentence on a new "point") you need to add a reference i.e. say what book says this. A ref looks like this:

<ref name=Abbreviationofauthorortitle>Surname, firstletterofnam ''Title'' Publisher (Year) ISBN x-xxx-xxx-xxx</ref>

Then, when you use the same source again further down, all you have to type after the sentence of paragraph you want to ref is:

<ref name=Abbreviationofauthorortitle/>

For a website, this looks very similar:

<ref name=Abbreviationofauthorortitle>[ "Titleofsite"]. Publisher. Retrieved xx month year.</ref> 

Hope that helps. Akerbeltz (talk) 09:44, 28 May 2010 (UTC)
