Required parameters[edit]

  • title: Title of the press release

Optional parameters[edit]

  • publisher: Issuer of press release
  • url: Link to the press release if available online. Start the url with the communications protocol e.g. http://.
    • format: Format, i.e. PDF. Don't specify for HTML (implied as default).
  • accessdate: Full date when item was accessed, in ISO 8601 YYYY-MM-DD format, for example "accessdate=2014-12-28". Must not be wikilinked; it will be linked automatically.
  • date: Full date of publication, preferably in ISO format, for example, "date=2006-02-17".
  • language: language of press release. Don't specify "English" as this is the default.
    • trans_title: Translated title of press release if it is in a foreign language.
  • archive parameters (if used, must be used both of them together)
    • archiveurl: The URL of an archived copy of a web page, if (or in case) the url becomes unavailable. Typically used to refer to services like WebCite and Archive.org.
    • archivedate: Date when the item was archived. Should not be wikilinked.
  • quote: Relevant quote from the press release.
  • ref: ID for anchor. By default, no anchor is generated. The ordinary nonempty value |ref=ID generates an anchor with the given ID; such a linkable reference can be made the target of wikilinks to full references, especially useful in short citations like shortened notes and parenthetical referencing. The special value |ref=harv generates an anchor suitable for the {{harv}} template; see anchors for Harvard referencing templates.
