This page is a guide to adding footnotes (also called "citations", "inline citations" or "references") when local citation templates have been configured for your wiki, but the citoid service has not been set up for your wiki.

Y bar offer

The VisualEditor toolbar appears at the top of the screen when you begin editing.
VisualEditor - Cite Pulldown.png
Cyfeirio menu: The "Cyfeirio" menu or button is used to add footnotes. All projects have access to "Cyfeiriad at ffynhonnell" reference formatting and the ability to "Ail-ddefnyddio" citations here. This menu also gives you quick access to local citation templates.

(Instructions for adding more local citation templates to the Cyfeirio menu at your wiki are available at VisualEditor/Citation tool.)

VisualEditor Insert Menu-cy.png
Mewnosod: The "Mewnosod" menu may be different on some projects. Two options are useful for citations:
  • The "Templed" icon (a puzzle piece) allows you to insert and edit templates. You can use this to create a citation, using a standard template, when you want a citation that is not going to be a footnote.
  • The "Rhestr cyfeiriadau" icon (three books) is to specify where the reader will see the list of footnotes for the page. Usually this only needs to be done once on every page. (If the page already shows footnotes, then you don't want to click on this icon.) You can also set references group to display using dialog window.

Editing an existing footnote

VisualEditor - Editing references 1.png
To edit an existing footnote, click on it where it appears in the text (usually as a bracketed number). You will then see either a "Cyfeiriad at ffynhonnell" icon (bookmark) or, an another icon with the name of the template that was used to create this footnote. Clicking on the "Edit" button will open a dialog where you can edit the footnote.

VisualEditor - Editing references 6.png
If you are editing a "Cyfeiriad at ffynhonnell" footnote, clicking on "Edit" will open the Reference dialog, where you can edit the text which is in the footnote. Editing this text is similar to editing in the main window - you can format text, add a link, or use special characters.

Unless you are sure you know what you are doing, do not use the Cite or Insert menus within the Reference dialog.


VisualEditor - Editing References - Cite Web.png
If, instead of the "Cyfeiriad at ffynhonnell" icon (bookmark), what appears when you click on a footnote is an icon for a standard template for citations, then clicking on "Edit" will take you directly to the template mini-editor dialog.

VisualEditor - Editing references 5.png
In the template mini-editor, only fields (template parameters) that have content will be shown initially. You can change the content of these fields, and you can delete these fields if you want.

To add fields, click on "Ychwanegu gwybodaeth ychwanegol" at the bottom of the mini-editor.


Click on "Gweithredu'r newidiadau" when you're done.

Re-using an existing footnote

VisualEditor Cite menu re-use.png
Ideally, every sentence or paragraph in an article should be supported by a citation, in a footnote. If you have some text that needs a citation (source) to support it, and the page already has a footnote that applies to (supports) that text, then you can re-use the existing citation, because one footnote can support multiple, different sentences or paragraphs.

To re-use an existing reference, place your cursor in the body of the text where you want to add a footnote. Then from the "Cyfeirio" menu, click on the "Ail-ddefnyddio" item.


VisualEditor - Editing references 18.png
In the Cyfeirnod dialog, look at the list for the reference you want to reuse, and select it. If there are many references, you can use the search box (labeled "At ba ffynhonnell yr hoffech gyfeirio?") to find only those references that include certain text.

Adding a new footnote

Using a standard citation template for a new footnote

VisualEditor - Editing References - Cite Pulldown.png
The "Cyfeirio" menu is used to add a new footnote. First, place your cursor where you want to add a footnote, in the text. Then, from this menu, select a standard citation type in the menu. If the citation type you want is not on the menu, select the "Cyfeiriad at ffynhonnell" item. (Instructions for adding more citation templates to this menu, on your local wiki, are available at VisualEditor/Citation tool.)

VisualEditor - Editing references - Cite book required fields.png
Clicking on a standard cite template icon such as "Book" will take you into the template mini-editor for that template. While the most common fields (template parameters) will be shown, not all of them are required. Important fields may be marked with an asterisk.

VisualEditor - Editing references - Add parameter.png
To add more parameters, scroll down in the template mini-editor and click on the "Ychwanegu gwybodaeth ychwanegol" option.

Click on "Mewnosod" when you're done.

Using the "Basic" citation for a new footnote

VisualEditor references more.png
You can also choose the "Cyfeiriad at ffynhonnell" item from the "Cyfeirio" menu.

The "Cyfeiriad at ffynhonnell" item is used for two purposes. You can create a footnote that doesn't use any citation template. Or you can create a footnote using a citation template that is not on the "Cyfeirio" menu.


VisualEditor - Editing references 20.png
Shown here is an example of selecting the "Cyfeiriad at ffynhonnell" item, and then, in the Reference editor, adding text, including formatting, but not using a citation template.

You can make the new footnote belong to a group other than general references, although this is normally not done. (If you do have two or more groups of footnotes, the "Rhestr cyfeiriadau" tool must specify the group of footnotes to be displayed).


In the Reference dialog, you can get to a citation template that is not (yet) on the "Cyfeirio" menu. From the "Mewnosod" toolbar menu, click on the Templed icon (puzzle piece).

VisualEditor - Editing references 9.png
Then, type the name (or part of the name) of the citation template you want to use, select it, click on "Add template", and edit it as you would any other template. (See the Editing templates section, below, if you need more information about templates.)

After you're done editing the template, click on "Mewnosod" to return to the Reference editor, and "Mewnosod" again to return to the page you're editing.

Adding a citation outside of a footnote

How to create a ==Further reading== list using Insert > Template > Cite book (etc.)

VisualEditor Template Insert Menu-cy.png
You can add citation templates directly into the article, without putting them in footnotes or by using Basic references editor. From the Insert menu, click on the "Templed" icon (a puzzle piece)

VisualEditor - Editing references 9.png
Then, type the name (or part of the name) of the citation template you want to use, select it, click on "Add template", and edit it as you would any other template. (See the Editing templates section in the user guide if you need more information about templates.)

After you're done editing the template, click on "Mewnosod" to return to the Reference editor, and "Mewnosod" again to return to the page you're editing.
