Category:CS1 errors: periodical ignored

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a tracking category for CS1 citations that have unsupported |periodical= (or alias) errors.

|periodical= ignored

Citation Style 1 templates {{cite book}} and {{cite encyclopedia}} do not support |periodical= (and aliases |journal=, |magazine=, |newspaper=, |website=, |work=) and associated |script-periodical= and |trans-periodical= (and their aliases).

To resolve this error:

  • use a more appropriate citation template, or
  • most common: change |title= to |chapter= (or appropriate alias) and then change |periodical= to |title=, or
  • change |work= to |series= if |title= is the actual title of the book and |work= contains the name of a book series, or
  • change |work= to another appropriate parameter (it has been used to hold values for |publisher=, |editor=, |via=, and more), or
  • move the content of the |periodical= parameter out of the template, before the closing </ref>, or
  • delete the |periodical= parameter
