External link in |<param>=

This error occurs when any of the CS1 or CS2 citation title-holding parameters – |title=, |chapter=, |publisher=, |work= or any of its aliases: |journal=, |magazine=, |newspaper=, |periodical= and |website= – hold an external link (URL). External links in these parameters corrupt the citation's metadata and can be the source of a variety of other error messages.

To resolve this error, remove the external link from the identified parameter. Consider placing the external link in a more appropriate parameter:

  • for |chapter=, the URL may belong in |chapter-url=.
  • for other parameters, it may belong in |url=.

Pages with this error are automatically placed in Category:CS1 errors: external links (263 pages).[a]
