  • Purpose: This template is used to cite sources in Wikipedia, specifically, audio and visual media sources.
  • Please consider using {{cite episode}} as an alternative, to cite episodes of television and radio programs. (Has some different alternative choices of data. Includes an example of use as non-episodic application which can be used instead of this template.)
  • A production can differ among versions released; it is important to use publication information for the exact version that was consulted. For example:
    • A second DVD release may differ from the first.
    • A subtitled edition is substantially different from an original version without subtitles.

Nested parameters rely on their parent parameters:

  • parent
  • OR: parent2—may be used instead of parent
    • child—may be used with parent (and is ignored if parent is not used)
    • OR: child2—may be used instead of child (and is ignored if parent2 is not used)
Where aliases are listed, only one of the parameters may be defined; if multiple aliased parameters are defined, then only one will show.

This template embeds COinS metadata in the HTML output, allowing reference management software to retrieve bibliographic metadata.
