Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

The {{crossreference}} (a.k.a. {{crossref}} or {{xref}}) template formats text into a standardized style for an inline (not block-level) "(See also ...)"-type parenthetical Wikipedia crossreference to other Wikipedia material. When on different pages, these are unprintworthy Wikipedia self-references. When crossreferencing material on the same page, they are not. For block-level crossreferences, see the {{Hatnote}} meta-template and its many progeny ({{See also}}, etc.). The output is ultimately produced by Module:Hatnote inline.

See Category:Cross-reference templates for other templates derived from or similar to this template.

Usage

Basic crossreference to another page:

Markup Renders as
{{Crossreference|(See also [[Radical Whigs]].)}}

(See also Radical Whigs.)

Basic crossreference on same page:

Markup Renders as
{{Crossreference|selfref=no|(see [[#Parameters]])}}

(see #Parameters)

All parameters:

Markup Renders as
{{Crossreference|text|class=class1 class2|selfref=no}}}}

text

The meta-template does not automatically create links of any kind. Links and other desired formatting (round brackets, terminal punctuation) must be explicitly added, using normal Wikipedia markup.


Parameters

This template accepts the following parameters:

  • |1= or |text= or |content= – The cross-reference text (required). While the explicit naming of this parameter with 1=, text=, or content= is not required, it is always safest to use it this way, since any = character in the text will break the template if the parameter is unnamed.
  • |class= or |extraclasses= – Any extra CSS classes to be added. This should not normally be used.
  • |selfref=no – If set to no (or n, false, 0, etc.) removes the default CSS class selfref, used to denote unprintworthy self-references to Wikipedia (see Template:Selfref for more information). This option should not be used on cross-article links, only links within the same article (and the shorthand templates {{See above}} and {{See below}} can be used for this purpose). The parameter aliases |printworthy=yes (or with any other value, like y, true, 1, etc.) and |unprintworthy=no (or n, false, 0) have the same effect as |selfref=no.
