Template-info.png Documentation

This template allows nested references where a reference is included inside a reference. This is mainly useful where content that would normally be in <ref>...</ref> tags is used as an explanatory note and requires a cite using <ref>...</ref>.

This template uses the magic word {{#tag:ref}} to allow the Cite parser to pass wiki markup.


{{refn|name=name|group=groupname|Reference or note including <ref></ref>}}

  • name: Reference name per reference name
  • groupname: Groupname per reference group; if not specified, then the main and nested references will be rendered into the same reference list


Markup Renders as
An example.{{refn|group=note|name=first|A note.<ref>An included reference.</ref>}}
Another example.{{refn|group=note|Another note.<ref>Another included reference.</ref>}}
A third example.{{refn|group=note|The third note.<ref>The reference in the third note.</ref>}}
Repeating the first example.{{refn|group=note|name=first}}
