Description Michael Frey 2007-01-18 18:16:36 UTC
On Wikibooks we use {{:Name}} for making dynanic printable versions.

It works good, but we have a problem with the references.


It seems that included refernces don't work.
Comment 1 Paul Robinson 2007-02-15 20:17:07 UTC
A demonstration of this behavior can be seen on which uses the template
Test:References.  The <ref> and </ref> tags around a reference in a transcluded
page will show as subscripted bracketed numeric links on the rendered page, but
the references and text are not generated in the <references/> section of that
page.  Also see the macro it calls, for the examples.
Comment 2 Paul Robinson 2007-03-28 19:32:19 UTC
There is a workaround for this.  If a parameter passed to the transcluded page
has a <ref> and </ref> on it, that will show up in the calling page.  It is only
when <ref> and </ref> are on the transcluded page that it doesn't work.
Comment 3 Jamie Hari 2007-05-27 23:55:49 UTC
Not surprisingly, if you transclude a <ref> and also include a <ref> directly, the transcluded tag shows second.

{{TranscludedRef}} <ref>Normally Cited</ref>

Would display as:
[2] [1]

Also, would this bug be dependant on Bug 4529 ?
Comment 4 Jamie Hari 2007-05-27 23:57:15 UTC
Sorry, I meant similar to Bug 4529 ...
Comment 5 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2007-05-28 17:47:30 UTC
Yeah, in large part it's the same issue: parser hook stuff isn't done in the same pass as curly-brace stuff.

*** Bug 10343 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

Bug 4529 was closed as a duplicate of Bug 2257.

Bug 2257 has a patch which is awaiting review. 
That patch might help this bug as well.
