# Template:Reflist

Template documentation[view]  [history] [purge]

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.

## Parameters

• 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.

## Example

Lorem.<ref>ipsum</ref><ref>dolor</ref><ref>sit</ref><ref>amet</ref>

gives:

Lorem.[1][2][3][4] Consectetur.[5][6][7]
