Neutrality of statements, see Template:POV[edit]

I question the neutrality of the recently added statements:

  • "Making matters worse, WWJ-TV has had to compete with longtime VHF CBS affiliates WTOL channel 11 in Toledo, Ohio and WLNS channel 6 in Lansing, Michigan. Both stations signals cover the Detroit/Windsor area decently."

I have placed a notice on the editor's talk page here. Thomprod (talk) 16:33, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

Using a ref more than once, see WP:REFNAME[edit]

It's pretty simple. For the first ref, make the ref just like you normally would, only instead of using <ref>...</ref>, use <ref name="NAME">...</ref>, where "NAME" is any name you want to use for the ref (the only rule is the name can't be a can be letters and numbers but not just a number). For every other time you want to use that ref, just type <ref name="NAME"/>, with nothing inside it, and using the same name as before. That will make the exact same ref appear. —Politizer talk/contribs 23:17, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

Notice that there is not a slash in the first ref, and there is a slash in the other refs. Here is an example:

This is the first use of the ref.[1]
This is the second use of the ref.[1]
  1. ^ a b Reference 1.

Citing references as footnotes[edit]

Note: put footnote after punctuation, per standard procedure at WP:REFPUNCT. Note: use the "cite" tollbar button when editing for faster citations.

Adding inline citations[edit]

Over the past week, I have added more detail to the section on Television Productions and tried to use inline footnotes to cite my references. In most cases, the references were web pages. Is there a better way to do this? I have read WP:Citeweb, but I think the footnote numbers that are produced by using (ref) and (/ref) keep the article text cleaner. Please correct me if I am wrong. Thomprod (talk) 18:55, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

Use <ref>{{Cite web|...}}</ref>. Dendodge TalkContribs 19:10, 19 December 2008 (UTC)
(e/c)If you wrap the citeweb template in <ref></ref>, the cite web stuff will be incorporated in the footnoted reference. Hope this helps. – ukexpat (talk) 19:13, 19 December 2008 (UTC)
Thanks, Dendodge and Ukexpat. I'll change them next time I have have a chance. Thomprod (talk) 18:11, 20 December 2008 (UTC)

Page links[edit]

Stale: ukexpat (talk) 21:14, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

I would like to link to a section with in a page and I don't know how could someone give me an example? Shadowmaster13 (talk) 10:31, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

Put a # between the article name and section title. For example, [[Canada#History]] would link to the Canada article's history section. Be sure to do some sort of piped link, as I did with my internal link to Canada, as the '#' looks bad when it shows up in the text of an article. WP:Manual of Style (links)#Linking to sections of articles has some more information and tips on how to do this. AlexiusHoratius 10:46, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

Actually what I meant was can you link from the top of a page to a section of that same page?Shadowmaster13 (talk) 08:08, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

Isn't that what the Table of Contents is for? --Thomprod (talk) 00:29, 16 March 2009 (UTC)
Just omit the page name before # in the above example by AlexiusHoratius. [[#Internal Links|this]] creates this piped link to the heading of this section. PrimeHunter (talk) 02:46, 16 March 2009 (UTC)
