Documentation This is a documentation subpage for Template:Reflist.
It contains usage information, categories, and other content that is not part of the original template page.

Use this template to create a reference list in small font for an article. Note that there is no consensus that small font size should always be used for all references; when normal-sized font is more appropriate on an article, use <references /> instead.[1]


Insert {{Reflist|number of columns}} where you would normally type <references/>. If used with no parameters, it will produce a reference list with a single column.

Multiple columns

Using {{Reflist|2}} will create a two-column reference list, and {{Reflist|3}} will create a three-column list. Three-column lists are inaccessible to users with smaller monitors and should be avoided.

Using {{Reflist|colwidth=30em}} will allow the browser to automatically choose the number of columns based on the width of the web browser. Choose a column width that's appropriate for the average width of the references on the page.


{{Reflist}} will give:

  1. I am a reference
