It's always good practice where possible to add references to the source of any information, to CITE sources.

Citation Templates / Macros

For sources which will be references or CITED multiple times it's quicker in the long run to create CITATION templates and some are in use already so these same sources can be CITED multiple times instead of creating the same reference multiple times. See the below category here or follow the CATEGORY breadcrumbs in the footer of the page.


Quick reference

Use the contents of the below Citation Template as an example for a one off reference/citation.

Citation Template

Heres an example from the page "Template:Cite/PaulDraperGigslutzDec2014"
{{cite |url= |title=UNDER THE INFLUENCE: Paul Draper (Mansun) |pub=Gigslutz | |desc=Paul lists his top 10 track playlist |med=website |date=2014-12-10 |type=ext |fetch=2016-02-05}} <noinclude> [[Category:Citation Macros]] </noinclude>

To use that reference/citation template on a page that want to quote it - simply link to it in the page using '''{{Template:Cite/PaulDraperGigslutzDec2014}}'''
