ଶ୍ରେଣୀ:CS1 errors: explicit use of et al.


This is a tracking category for CS1 citations that have name-holding parameters containing some form of 'et al.'

Explicit use of et al. in: |<param>=

This error occurs where a Citation Style 1 or Citation Style 2 template detects that one of the names parameters contains some form of "et al." either as a separate name parameter (|author6=et al.) or as a suffix added to a name list (|author=Smith, A.B. et al.) or first name (|first=John, et al.).

This error can occur in any of the author, editor, interviewer, translator, or contributor parameters.

Use the |display-authors= parameter instead (or other applicable |display-<names>= parameter), as documented at Help:Citation Style 1#Display options.

Pages with this error are automatically placed in Category:CS1 errors: explicit use of et al. (୦ pages).[a]
