Template:Reflist

Usage

Use this template to create a reference list in an article with a small font, or to organize a large list of references into two or three columns. Note that there is no consensus that small font size should always for all references; when normal-sized font is more appropriate on an article, use <references /> instead.

If used with no parameters, it will produce a reference list with a single column.

Multiple columns

Using {{reflist|2}} will create a two-column reference list, and {{reflist|3}} will create a three-column list.

Using {{reflist|colwidth=30em}} will allow the browser to automatically choose the number of columns based on the width of the web browser. Choose a column width that's appropriate for the average width of the references on the page.

Note: multiple columns currently render properly only in Mozilla Firefox and other Gecko-based browsers,[1] though the feature is included in CSS3, so it should work for a larger number of browsers in the future.[2]

Three options for usage

Option 1 (only specific references)

see Wikipedia:The Rule for example

== Content ==

Lorem ipsum.<ref>Source name, access date, etc.</ref>

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet.<ref>Source name, access date, etc.</ref>

== References ==

{{reflist}}

Option 2 (only general references)

see Wikipedia:National Publications for example

== Content ==

Lorem ipsum.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet.

== References ==

{{refbegin}}
* general reference 1
* general reference 2
{{refend}}

Option 3 (both specific and general references)

see Wikipedia:Elephant for example

== Content ==

Lorem ipsum.<ref>Source name, access date, etc.</ref>

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet.<ref>Source name, access date, etc.</ref>

Lorem ipsum.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet.

== References ==

{{reflist}}

{{refbegin}}
* general reference 1
