Finding this page and CN template Edit

First, I had a lot of trouble finding this page. Please add some redirect for 'reference' and 'citation'. Second, this page still does not answer my question. I need to know how to place a 'citation needed' instead of a real citation. I've seen it somewhere and it's like 'cn' with some kind of brackets. It seems a nice addition to this page. --Vittek 16:10, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

I've added the redirects - good spot. As for the citation needed template, that comes from {{fact}}, as used on Wikipedia - see wikipedia:Template:Fact (though this specific version is much more advanced than almost any other wiki needs).
Not all Wikia wikis have a fact template, but the code for the Template:Fact page if you need to create it is basically just:
<sup><span title="This claim needs references to reliable sources" style="white-space: nowrap;">[''citation needed'']</span></sup>
...which creates [citation needed].
Hope that helps! Kirkburn (talk) @fandom 16:21, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
Thank you very much. Anyway I've found out that the wiki I'm working on uses {{cn}} since that's the name of the template. --Vittek 20:10, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

Help with Cites Edit

Hello, I'm Sweet Fur. I'm the admin on Julie's Wolves Wiki, and I'm having some trouble. I put this code to get a citation (it's connected to a template page). You'll have to go to source mode to see it. But it won't work, either way. Can you help me? Thanks. --Sweet Fur AmySweet Fur and Storm Call 02:31, February 3, 2011 (UTC) </references>Revealed in Julie of the Wolves; page 153</references>

Oh, I just saw this does not belong here. Where should I move it for help? --Sweet Fur AmySweet Fur and Storm Call 02:32, February 3, 2011 (UTC)

Double References Edit

Is there a way to have one reference link (the [1] thing) be placed in multiple parts of an article and still direct to one link on a reference list.

For example, if I use
<ref>google.com</ref>
twice in an article, it will link to references number one and two. Is there any way for them to both link to number one? Thanks, WarriorLoverInc 16:51, June 28, 2011 (UTC)

CustomizationEdit

Is there a way to customize the reference box so that it can look different?
