Category:CS1 maint: Multiple names: authors list

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a tracking category for CS1 citations that use |author=, or its aliases.

Articles are listed in this category when Module:Citation/CS1 identifies citations that use singular forms of author name-list parameters to list multiple names. Doing so corrupts the citation's metadata.

Replacing a singular |author= or |last= with the plural |authors= removes all author information from the template's COinS metadata. Enumerating the author list with |authorn=, or |lastn= / |firstn=, or, where appropriate, |vauthors=, all preserve the associated metadata.

The citation module code looks for multiple comma or semicolon separator characters. This means that there can be some false positives in this list, so this maintenance message and category are hidden for most editors and readers.

Pages in this category should only be added by Module:Citation/CS1.


While most of the Citation Style 1 and Citation Style 2 error messages are visible to all readers, some remain hidden. Editors who wish to see all of the CS1|2 error messages can do so by updating their common or skin CSS stylesheet to include:

.citation-comment {display: inline !important;} /* show all Citation Style 1 error messages */

Even with this css installed, older pages in Wikipedia's cache may not have been updated to show these error messages even though the page is listed in one of the tracking categories. A WP:NULLEDIT will resolve that issue.

The above code is required if you wish to see maintenance category messages:
