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

Use this template to create a reference list in an article with a small font. For details on how to use references, see the reference guide.

Usage

The basic usage requires no parameters:

{{reflist}}

Quotes

If the references contain a large number of quotes, to hide the quotes (and only the quotes) add quotes=no:

{{reflist|quotes=no}}

Column controls

There are two ways of controlling columns: setting the number of columns and setting the width of the columns. By default there is one column.

Note: multiple columns currently render properly only in Gecko-based browsers (such as Mozilla Firefox) and WebKit-based browsers (such as Safari and Chrome), though the feature is included in CSS3, so it should work for a larger number of browsers in the future.

Number

The number of columns is controlled using the first unnamed parameter. Using {{reflist|2}} will create a two-column reference list, and {{reflist|3}} will create a three-column list.

Width

The width of columns is controlled using the colwidth Using {{reflist|colwidth=30em}} will allow the browser to automatically choose the number of columns based on the width of the web browser. The width supports and of the standard CSS length units: px, pt, em, %. Choose a column width that's appropriate for the average width of the references on the page.

Groups

To list references in a group, add group=groupname:

{{reflist|group=groupname}}
