Hey, can there be a space in a ref where one can, if they so choose, to have a pg. #? The BWB is really big, and sometimes the info is scattered weird places. Perhaps at least, there can be an article name part? citing the article is the MLA way to cite a reference book.

ENCYCLOPEDIAS and REFERENCE BOOKS [5.6.8]

Author of Article (if given). "Article Title." Title of Book. City of Publication: 
     Publisher, Year.
  • When citing familiar reference books, especially those that often appear in new editions, full publication information is not necessary.
  • Give the edition (if available) and the year of publication.
  • If articles are arranged alphabetically, volume and page numbers are not necessary.

(note that it implies that if articles are not arranged alphabetically, then page numbers are necessary.)


I know, I know...do i really need to get crazy will all the MLA documentation?...but really, I like putting the numbers down. and its not hurting anyone, it only shows up in the coding for the most part. Can putting in pg. numbers really be a bad thing?

You can use the following coding: {{ref|{{bwb}} pg. ##}}. Note that this one does not use the book qualifier, uses the {{bwb}} template and has no pipe between the bwb and the page. These are the results:[1] [2]

  1. TWORJTWOT pg. 2

Let me know if you have any other questions. ---- Willie - HtS 20:30, January 3, 2011 (UTC)
