Installable with the Extension Manager


This macro allows you to create Citation-Objects. These citations can be referred to in every page multiple times.




This macro uses References. You have to use it with the parameter footnote="true" or should ensure that you have references installed. If you not want to use references-macro, than you have to use putFootnotes to show the citations.

  • Create a new Object of class-type XWiki.CitationClass
  • Don't leave the mandatory field key unfilled
  • Place is any document the citation macro and watch it emoticon_wink

Prerequisites & Installation Instructions

We recommend using the Extension Manager to install this extension (Make sure that the text "Installable with the Extension Manager" is displayed at the top right location on this page to know if this extension can be installed with the Extension Manager).

You can also use the manual method which involves dropping the JAR file and all its dependencies into the WEB-INF/lib folder and restarting XWiki.
