Template:Cite book

From Zelda Wiki, the Zelda encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search


Purpose

This is a variant of the {{Cite}} template that is to be used when you're pulling a quote or information from a book that is NOT A MANUAL, such as a strategy guide or any of the manga. This is to be used to cite sources, and should be used within <ref></ref> tags.

This template can also be used in FileInfo to source an image, in which case <ref></ref> tags should not be used. (Leave the "quote" field blank.)

Usage

To use, enter this code:

{{Cite book| quote= [the quote]| book= [book title]| publisher= [the book's publisher]| page= [the page(s) the quote appears on]}}

Replace the parts in [ brackets ] like so:

  • quote
    • The direct quote.
  • book
    • The FULL TITLE of the book that the quote is from.
  • publisher
    • The publisher of the book (Nintendo, Prima Games, etc.).
  • page
    • The number of the page(s) the quote appears on.

Example:

{{Cite book|quote= ...Telma is actually the leader of a resistance force...|book= The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Premium Edition strategy guide|publisher= Prima Games|page= 16}}

Will generate:

"...Telma is actually the leader of a resistance force..." (The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Premium Edition strategy guide (Prima Games), pg. 16)
