This is a documentation subpage for Template:Cite.
Don't forget to purge the contents of the base page upon creating or editing this subpage.  

Usage

This is a replacement for {{ref}}, which is very basic and does not include a lot of features. Only parameter is {{{1}}}, which defines the id to link to. This template is used in tandem with {{ref2}} and {{references}} to mimic citing, as the MediaWiki version we are provided with does not have citing extensions enabled like Wikipedia and other wikis.

Example

Icon-Bug.pngBug:Links with "=" on it will break the template. Please use the {{=}} template as a workaround.
{{highlight|color=white|text color=black|1=This is really cool text from an external source.}}{{cite|1}}{{cite|2}}{{cite|4}}

{{highlight|color=white|text color=black|1=This is really cool text from an external source which has since become dead.}}{{cite|3}}
{{lorem ipsum|5}}
<!-- Copy this area below -->
{{references|1=
{{ref2|cite id=1|This is the external source that the text was cited from}}
{{ref2|cite id=2|access-date=November 18, 2024|Doe, John (November 17, 2024). "Articles about {{hl2|1}} 20th Anniversary". ''Website name''.}}
{{ref2|cite id=3|access-date={{#time: F d, Y }}|Doe, John ({{#time: F d, Y }}). "Lorem ipsum". ''Website name''. [https://web.archive.org Archived] from the original in {{#time: F d, Y }}.}}
