Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

Usage[edit source]

A wrapper for {{Citation}}, which calls available values from Wikidata.

An example of an article using this template for all of its references is South Pole Telescope; an example using Harvard style citations is Suffix automaton.

By default, if there are more than eight author names, the template displays three, followed by "et al". This can be changed using |display-authors=; using that parameter with no value displays them all. The same applies to multiple editors - see the test-case pages.

Future developments[edit source]

  • Once robust the functionality should be merged into {{Citation}}
  • Eventually, each signed-in reader should be able to set, under their "Preferences", the style in which they wish to see citations rendered. No more CiteVar wars!
  • We should have a [[:mediawiki:|Global templates|lobal template repository]], so the code can be used by multiple wikis, without having to manually copy it after every update.g

Parameters[edit source]

  • |1= = Wikidata QID for the article

Additionally, any named parameter used in {{citation}} may be entered and will overwrite the value in Wikidata. Using such parameters, with a value of unset, will suppress display of data from Wikidata.

Blank[edit source]

<ref name="">{{Cite Q| XXQIDXX }}</ref>

Reference naming[edit source]

For ease of use, you may wish to name your references to reflect the cited work, for example:

<ref name="Williams-2010">{{Cite Q|Q15625490}}</ref>

Module:Wd[edit source]

Module:Wd can automatically cause this template to be invoked, e.g.,

{{Wikidata|references|raw|Q2978|P2046}}
https://www.destatis.de/DE/ZahlenFakten/LaenderRegionen/Regionales/Gemeindeverzeichnis/Administrativ/Aktuell/05Staedte.html. "Alle politisch selbständigen Gemeinden mit ausgewählten Merkmalen am 31.12.2018 (4. Quartal)". DESTATIS. Archived from the original on 10 March 2019. Retrieved 10 March 2019.

currently causes the following to be invoked:

{{Cite Q|Q15707237|pages=242}}
Bavarian State Office for Statistics and Data, ed. (1991), Amtliches Ortsverzeichnis für Bayern (in German), Munich: Bavarian State Office for Statistics and Data, p. 242, Wikidata Q15707237

because an area (P2046) statement on Regensburg (Q2978) is referenced to be stated in (P248) Amtliches Ortsverzeichnis für Bayern (1991) (Q15707237) with page(s) (P304) = 242.

Issues[edit source]

  • Render subtitle (P1680), following the title with a :
  • More properties/ parameters to add
  • Parameters with no equivalent property?
  • Move Wikidata link before |quote= (and after other IDs like |pmid=)
    • Can be achieved by passing to {{Citation}}'s |id parameter
  • Check/ resolve handling of redirected QID
  • Resolve special case of newspaper articles
  • Improve date formatting options
  • Handle volume in a serial
  • Order of precedence for rendering author names:
    1. stated as (P1932) qualifier on author (P50)
    2. author name string (P2093)
    3. author (P50) label in English
    4. author (P50) label in any other language
  • Author names (Western-style, at least) should display as "Last, First Middle" to match Wikipedia house style
  • Are there values of |others which are not illustrators? Possibly:
    • signatories
    • presenter
    • performer
  • Add a tracking category for references with a Template:WDP statement
  • Add a tracking category for references with a Template:WDP statement
  • Links to sister projects: Wikisource, if a transcription project exists; Wikibooks; Wikiversity (esp. the Wikijournals there); perhaps more

  • Consider case where author is given as et al. (Q311624)
  • Where there is a Wikipedia article about the work cited, link the title to that, overriding the URL if necessary (example: d:Q25766745)
    • Ditto for editions of works
  • Multiple author names treated as one blob
  • Linking author name(s)
  • Title for a book uses {{ #invoke:WikidataIB |getLink |{{{1}}} }} and may be expensive
  • Fix |ol= values
  • Need to add manual date for newspaper articles/ website articles.
  • Make publisher a link, where appropriate
  • Improve handing of unexpected multiple values
    • e.g. Handle multiple DOIs
  • Handle author name string (author name string (P2093)) values (e.g. on Q38000000)
  • Handle pseudonymous author personas such as P. D. Q. Bach or Mark Twain
  • What to do if title not in English
  • Need to handle volume, issue and page(s) as qualifiers of published in (P1433)
  • Need wider variety of examples/ test cases
  • If language of work or name is set (and not the local language); pass that; if not but language of title is set (and not the local language), use that
  • The url parameter should also pick up data from the properties full work available at URL (P953) and URL (P2699)
  • Linking title to Wikipedia article, if any
  • Need to fetch ISSN etc. from item about journal
