This template is for citing sources.

The use of citation templates is not required. See BZFlagWiki:Citing sources for the relevant guideline.

Please consider using specific citation templates before this general template. For a list of citation templates, see Category:Citation templates.

Example:

Code:
{{cite|author=Fred Bloggs|title=A book|publisher=A Publisher|date=2004-07-31}}

Result:

Fred Bloggs, A book, A Publisher, 2004-07-31.

Note: As "the date" is a single parameter in the code, using something like date=July 31, 2004 doesn't work. Hence the ISO date format is used in the example.
