I'd like to be able to use the Cite MediaWiki extension:

http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Cite

Is this possible?  Thanks.

Or at the least we should update the help pages on wiki.mozilla.org to not say <ref> is supported. It took me quite a while testing out different syntaxes until I verified that the help pages are wrong.

Please point to the help pages on MozillaWiki that are incorrect.

I note again that the link you posted in your original bug was on the *MediaWiki* site.

> Please point to the help pages on MozillaWiki that are incorrect.

While editing any page on the MozillaWiki wiki, click the Help link in the editor navigation bar.  Then click its References list item.  As shown in the attached screenshot, documentation will then appear that tells you how to use the <ref> and <references> tags to add references to your page.
Also the "book with a line of red" icon in the screenshot is an "add reference" button that adds a <ref>reference</ref> to the text of your page.
My workaround (on https://wiki.mozilla.org/PluotSorbet) is to construct the reference with the combination of a <sup> span and a link to an anchor:

  <sup>[[#JavaScript|[1]]]</sup>

And then, at the bottom of the page, add the anchor with some styling:

  <hr>
  ''<small>{{anchor|JavaScript}}[1] JavaScript is a trademark or registered trademark of Sun Microsystems,
  Inc. in the U.S. and other countries, used under license.</small>''

:myk thanks for adding that link.

:GPHemsley apologies for not getting you that link, I hadn't realized this ticket was waiting on my reply.

:GPHemsley, is there any more info you need? Hit me with a needinfo if so and I'll get it (in much less than 8 months =) )

It's a mistake that any reference to features from the Cite extension appears on MozillaWiki, but that is a content mistake that can be resolved on-wiki.

We do not currently have plans to install the Cite extension (in part because the target content for MozillaWiki is generally not such that it requires references).
