Ha Rob,

footnote and ref are in WE not like in wikipedia. I would like to see an example of the use of rev and revlist or footnotes, for the help text is very short.

Hi Jaap,

Try the edit view of the what is a wiki tutorial to see how the references are done.

The syntax is <ref> What you want to ref here </ref> which displays like [1]

Then down where you want the notes you use <references/> only not a pair of tags. This displays the references with the choice of heading or not up to you.


  1. What you want to ref here

I don't remember having a footnotes citing system available.

There is a template called {{UrlRef| url goes here}} that shows nothing on screen but creates a reference to the url when the page is printed to pdf.

There is a Harvard style citation {{Harv|Wiki|2006}} which displays like so:

(Wiki 2006)

Let me know if this helps.

A link to the extension page for the <ref> tag, has some better examples.

Note that WE may not be running the latest version.
