Cite makes it possible to add footnotes to a page.

Usage[edit source]

The basic concept of the ‎<ref> tag is that it inserts the text enclosed by the ref tags as a footnote in a designated section, which you indicate with the placeholder tag ‎<references />‎.

Additional placeholder tags ‎<references />‎ can be inserted in the text, and all ‎<ref> tags up to that point, in that group, will be inserted there.

If you forget to include ‎<references />‎ in the article, the footnotes will not disappear, but the references will be displayed at the end of the page.

This page itself uses footnotes, such as the one at the end of this sentence.[note 1] If you view the source of this page by clicking "Edit this page", you can see a working example of footnotes.
