How do I cite the same source with different page numbers?

asked 2016-11-30 11:15:31 -0500

I'm using the same source multiple times in an article, but I want to cite different page numbers at different footnotes. Is there a way to do this without copying the rest of the citation for each different instance?

The easiest way is to use the "rp" template, which inserts a superscript with the page numbers after the reference. Here's how to use it:

  1. Add a citation the normal way — eg, using the 'Re-use' option in the VisualEditor cite tool if you already cited the same source.
  2. Immediately after the citation, add the "rp" template:
    • Click 'Insert'
    • Click 'Template'
    • Type in 'rp' and then click 'Add template'
    • Enter the page number(s) and then click 'Insert'
