Description Francis Tyers 2006-06-14 21:28:54 UTC
5. Ability to use notes/refs within templates, and the actual note/ref to appear
in the article that includes the said template. (eg. see Template:Geographical
Macedonia within article Macedonia (terminology) -where "Note a" is forced
within the template, rather than in the ref section in the article. Relevant
test failed (see history of both articles).) Useful diffs: 

template
http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Template:Geographical_Macedonia&diff=prev&oldid=55053861

article
http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Macedonia_%28terminology%29&diff=55053824&oldid=55053743

See current behavior at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Simetrical/Ref_test_2.
 Transcluded refs appear to behave correctly except that 1) new numbers from
transcluded refs (due to an unnamed ref or a new name) are numbered after all
numbers from local refs, and 2) transcluded refs are not reflected in
<references />.
Comment 2 NikoSilver 2006-06-14 23:05:34 UTC
Also

3) the ref text does not appear in the template: article
4) there is no notification in the template: article for editors who wish to place it in 
another article to also include a <references/> section (for the ref-text to appear).
Comment 3 Chris Pickett 2006-12-05 21:53:54 UTC
I think solving this issue will enable people to have unique IDs for references
in the template namespace in Wikimedia projects.  I think it's pretty clear that
this would be a fantastic thing to have, so I'm changing the priority from low
to normal.

Is fixed.

Is fixed.

You can use <noinclude><references /></noinclude> in the template.

You can type a notification between <noinclude> and </noinclude>.

Marked as FIXED.
