Template documentation (for the template shown above, sometimes hidden or invisible)

This template is used to create reference-style footnotes. Its versatility allows for multiple note groups and calling previously-created notes in the same page.

Any pages that use this template must use Template:Notelist as well.


Creating a new note for only one use:[note 1]

{{Note|This is a single footnote.}}

Creating a new note that can be used again in the same page:[note 2]

{{Note|name=Note1|This is a reusable footnote.}}

Calling a previously-created note:[note 2]


Creating a new note with a group specification that can be used again:[a]

{{Note|group=a|name=Note2|This is a reusable lower-alpha footnote.}}

Calling a previously-created note with a group specification:[a]



Parameter Required? Usage
name No An identifier to call this note in the same page.
group No Set this to use a different display than "note #" when the note is shown on the page. If using name, this parameter must be equal to all other name-equivalent notes. If using this, a supported value must be used:
group=a renders notes as "a", "b", "c", etc.
<unnamed> No The text displayed in the footnote itself. Omit this if the template is being used to reuse a note already made elsewhere on the page with the same name.
