Notes[change source]

This template is used to cite sources in Wikipedia, specifically, visual media sources. Please use Template:Cite episode to cite episodes of television and radio programs.

Usage[change source]

Copy one of these three blank versions to use. Note that all fields must be lowercase, and remember to use the "|" (pipe) character between each field. Please delete any unused fields to avoid clutter in the edit window.

Horizontal list
{{cite video |people= |year= |date= |title= |url= |format= |medium= |publisher= |location= |accessdate=2018-03-20 |time= |quote= }}
Horizontal list (without current date)
{{cite video |people= |year= |date= |title= |url= |format= |medium= |publisher= |location= |accessdate= |accessmonth= |accessyear= |time= |quote= }}

* The field listed below is a prerequisite for the field to the left. For example year is a prerequisite to date meaning date will NOT be displayed even if it has a value unless year also has a value.
** Wikilinks must link to an existing article, and cannot be used if url is used below.
