External link in
This error occurs when any of the CS1 or CS2 citation title-holding parameters –
|work= or any of its aliases:
|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:
|chapter=, the URL may belong in
- for other parameters, it may belong in
Pages with this error are automatically placed in Category:CS1 errors: external links (400 pages).[a]
