Description of fields[change | edit source]

Syntax[change | edit source]

Nested fields either rely on their parent fields, or replace them:

  • parent
    • child — may be used with parent (and is ignored if parent is not used)
    • alternative — may be used in place of parent

Description[change | edit source]

  • title: The title of the album. This is the only required field. Do not wikilink (and do not italicize, as this has been done for you).
    • albumlink: The name of the Wikipedia article about the album, if one exists. Do not wikilink.
  • artist: The name of the artist or band, or Various artists if applicable. Please wikilink if the citation is being used on a page that is not the artist or band's article. |bandname= is a deprecated synonym for |artist=.
  • year: The copyright year of the album. Do not wikilink.
  • url: The full URL (internet address) of the notes if they are available online.
  • notestitle: The title of the notes, if different from the title of the album.
  • last: The last name of the author of the notes, if different from the artist. Don't wikilink (use authorlink instead).
    • first: The first name of the author of the notes.
    • authorlink: Title of Wikipedia article about author. Article should already exist. Must not be wikilinked itself. Do not use this on its own, but along with "first" and "last".
    • coauthors: Full name of additional author or authors, separated by ", " (e.g. Joe Bloggs, John F. Kennedy, H. R. Dent).
  • page: Page number if a multi-page document and referencing a single page. "page=5" produces p. 5.
    • or pages: Page numbers if a multi-page document and referencing more than one page. "pages=5-7" produces pp. 5-7. This is for listing the pages relevant to the citation, not a total number of pages. Do not include the "p." or "pp." prefix.
    • or at: The name of a page for cases like "back cover", etc. The template will not add a "p." or "pp." prefix.
  • format: How the notes are presented (booklet, book, insert, back cover, cover, liner, etc.) and for what type of medium the album is presented in (CD, DVD, Vinyl). Example: CD liner or Vinyl back cover.
  • publisher: The record label. You may wikilink if the record label has an article.
    • publisherid: The catalog number from the publisher for the album release that corresponds to the notes.
    • location: The location of the publisher to the smallest geographical unit known (city, state, country). You may wikilink.
  • ref: ID for anchor. By default, no anchor is generated. The ordinary nonempty value |ref=ID generates an anchor with the given ID; such a linkable reference can be made the target of wikilinks to full references, especially useful in short citations like shortened notes and parenthetical referencing. The special value |ref=harv generates an anchor suitable for the {{harv}} template; see anchors for Harvard referencing templates. See "Wikilinks to full references" in Examples below for using the ref field in citation templates in conjunction with short <ref>...</ref> citations.
Notes for Harvard references
  1. If you specify |ref=harv, you must also specify an author surname using |last=surname.
  2. This template supports only a single author, and so |ref=harv will only work for a single author: {{harv|Smith|2009}} will work, but {{harv|Smith|Jones|2009}} will not.
