This documentation is transcluded from Template:PlainCiteForum/doc.
Template:PlainCiteForum invokes Module:References using Lua.

Usage

This template is exactly like Template:CiteForum, with two exceptions. First, it is not a reference template in the sense that it does not create footnote-styled references. Instead, it creates the same text that {{CiteForum}} would as a non-reference. This is desirable if a certain forum page is the source of the majority of an article, as having the same reference at the end of every sentence. Second, it does not have the "name" parameter, as this only applies to footnote-style references.

{{PlainCiteForum |author= |url= |title= |forum= |postdate= |notes= |date=~~~~~}}

author

The author of the post. Include "Mod" prefixes, such as "Mod Mark" instead of simply "Mark".

url

Archive the thread at WebCite first, then be sure to include the full URL, including the http://.

title

The title of the thread.

forum

Optional. The forum where the thread is/was located. Defaults to RuneScape.

postdate

The date the post was added. If the post was edited, use the most recent edit date.

Standard parameters

The following parameters are standard across all citation templates.

notes

Optional. This parameter allows you to add text beginning one space after the end of the citation. Having no formatting (meaning you will have to format it yourself), this area can be used for anything you require.
