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

{{notelist}} creates a section of explanatory notes that were individually specified by {{efn}} tags in the article. This is analogous to the <references /> and <ref>...</ref> tags for normal citations.

The {{notelist}} section should generally occur before the references. This is required when the explanatory notes are referenced, otherwise there will be citations errors. Even if the explanatory notes are not referenced, they are probably more likely to be read than the references, and should be nearer to the top of the MOS:APPENDIX sections than the "References" section for this reason.

Usage[edit source]


  • colwidth: establishes column width for the reference list based on a typographic unit of measurement such as em.
  • refs: used with named references (e.g. <ref name=name />); it specifies a list of some or all named references used in the article
  • close: forces the reference list to close and render all references defined to that point; see the Template:Reflist#Multiple uses for details.
