This citation template provides formatting and organizational features for footnotes. It encapsulates the <references /> tag used by the cite.php MediaWiki extension to show the list of references as defined by <ref> tags. It adds support for a reduced font size, columns, groups.

If you don't use any of the additional features, then it produces the same output as the simpler and slightly faster <references /> tag.


  • First unnamed parameter:
column-count: a natural number specifying fixed columns into which the reference list is to be rendered. Example: |2|.
column-width: a typographic unit of measurement such as em, specifying the width for the reference list columns. Example: |30em|.
  • refs: used with named references (e.g., <ref name=name />); it specifies a list of some or all named references used in the article.
  • group: identifies by name the subset of references to be rendered; the value should correspond to that used inline, e.g., {{Reflist|group=groupname}} renders all references with groupname as the group name (<ref>).
  • liststyle: specifies the style used when the reference list is enumerated; if none is specified, the default is to render a numbered list.
  • close=1: forces the reference list to close and render all references defined to that point; see the section on multiple uses for details.
