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:
For a website, this looks very similar:
<ref name=Abbreviationofauthorortitle>[http://xxxxxxxx.xxx "Titleofsite"]. Publisher. Retrieved xx month year.</ref>
