Documentation[edit source]

This template creates a citation for an online source. You should usually put this template within a <ref /> tag.

<ref>{{cite web|url=|title=|author=|username=|date=|website=|publisher=|access-date=|quote=}}</ref>

If the page is not in English, translate the title and enter the language's ISO 639 code (for example, fr for French, tok for Toki Pona) into these parameters: |trans-title=|language=

In case the page changes or becomes unavailable later, it is recommended to save an archive of it with the Wayback Machine or archive.is, then add the parameters: |archive-url=|archive-date=

Discord messages require other information; use Template:cite Discord instead.
