Description Stephen Fisher 2006-08-06 18:26:01 UTC
It would be great to have a separate field while editing a page that lets you add a reference 
automatically.  You could click a button to enter the link text into the article both at the 
point needed and at the bottom referencfes section if needed and you would fill in a text 
field to describe it and choose what type of reference it is: URL, book, magazine, etc.

Should the ref addition dialog used in advanced toolbar (I think) be included in core?
