This procedure is for placing the entire list of all references or footnotes on a page. Standard Wiki policy is to place a Reference header as the last header on the page, then place the reference list under that header:

  1. Click on "Edit" in the tool bar at the top of page. The Visual Editor tool bar will appear.
  2. Make sure the last header on the page is named "Reference". If not found, create the header.
  3. Place the cursor below the "Reference" header where you want the list of references or footnotes to appear in the article.
  4. Then click "Insert" on the Visual Editor tool bar.
  5. Select "More" from the drop down menu to see the rest of the menu.
  6. Click on "References list" and they will appear where you clicked the cursor in a blue box.
  7. Click "Save page" in Visual Editor" tool bar.
  8. Enter description in "Summary" box.
  9. Click "Save page" in panel.
