This documentation page uses Creative Commons Licensed content from Wookieepedia.

All parameters, horizontal format (delete the ones you don't need)

{{Cite web |url= |title= |author= |language= |date= |format= |work= |publisher= |pages= |quote= |archiveurl= |archivedate= |nolive=1 |nobackup=1}}

All parameters, vertical format
{{Cite web
| url = 
| title = 
| author = 
| language = 
| date = 
| format = 
| work = 
| publisher = 
| pages = 
| quote = 
| archiveurl = 
| archivedate =

| nobackup = 1
}}

Required parameters

  • url: URL of online item.
  • title: Title of online item.

Optional parameters

  • author: Author(s), whether individuals or organizations, preferably as Last Name, First name. May be wikilinked.
  • date: Full date of publication in ISO 8601 YYYY-MM-DD format, e.g. 2006-02-17. May be wikilinked. If the complete date isn't known, use partialdate instead.
  • language: Language of publication, if not in the implied default (English).
  • format: Format, if not in the implied default (HTML), e.g. PDF.
  • work: The larger work, such as the website hosting the individual page or the larger work that a single article is part of. If the parameter isn't provided, the template will automatically extract and link the domain name.
  • publisher: Publisher, if any.
  • pages: First page and optional last page of a document, e.g. pp. 5–7, for the pages relevant to the citation (not the total number of pages in the document). This is especially useful for PDF format, where the page can be linked to with the #page=number anchor tagged on the end of the URL, e.g.: pages = [http://www.example.org/file.pdf#page=123 p. 123]
  • quote: Relevant quote from online item. Quotation marks are automatically added.
  • one optional backup parameter:
    • archivedate: This parameter uses the timestamp feature of Internet Archive. The URL supplied earlier in the template, along with archivedate, will provide a link to Internet Archive. The timestamp portion of an Internet Archive URL looks like YYYYMMDD######, e.g. 20201130123456.
    • archiveurl: If Internet Archive does not work for the link in question, you can use archiveurl to provide a full URL to another backup website, such as archive.is.
  • other optional backup parameters:
    • nolive=1: If the original online content is no longer available, this adds the note (content no longer online)
    • nobackup=1: If the original online content is no longer available and no backup link can be found, this adds the note (backup link not available)
