This page contains usage information, categories, interwiki links and other content describing the template.

Usage[edit]

This template may be used on Wikipedia entry pages to quote Daniel Defoe's book Robinson Crusoe (1st edition, 1719). As no online version of that edition of the book is currently available, the template creates a link to an online version of the 3rd edition of the book (which was published in the same year) at Google Books.

Parameters[edit]

The template takes the following parameters:

  • |1= or |page=; or |pages=mandatory in some cases: the page number(s) quoted from. When quoting a range of pages, note the following:
    • Separate the first and last pages of the range with an en dash, like this: |pages=110–111.
    • You must also use |pageref= to specify the page number that the template should link to (usually the page on which the Wiktionary entry appears).
If this parameter is omitted, the template will not link to the online version of the work.
  • |2= or |passage= – a passage quoted from the work.
  • |brackets= – use |brackets=on to surround a quotation with brackets. This indicates that the quotation either contains a mere mention of a term (for example, "some people find the word manoeuvre hard to spell") rather than an actual use of it (for example, "we need to manoeuvre carefully to avoid causing upset"), or does not provide an actual instance of a term but provides information about related terms.
