Wikisource and wstitle=[edit]

If you use a template like {{cite Americana}} as you did with this edit (16 July 2013), which links to an article on Wiksource instead of placing the wikisource article title as an unamed parameter as you did with:

  • {{Cite Americana|Botanical Gardens|author=MacDougal, D. T.}}

please use the named parameter "wstitle=" like this:

  • {{Cite Americana|wstitle=Botanical Gardens|author=MacDougal, D. T.}}

Almost all the templates for linking to multi-article volumes on Wikisource use this parameter. If you come across any that do not then please leave a message on my talk page and I will fix them so that they do. -- PBS (talk) 23:21, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

Information icon Hello, I'm Excirial. I wanted to let you know that I reverted one of your recent contributions —the one you made with this edit to Jake (given name)— because it did not appear constructive. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks.
