I want to cite several pages from my Wordpress blog to my wiki 2nd g grandfather profile.  What can I use as a citation?  I don't see a "citation"  link on the actual blog page.  I have posted the URL,  Or is there a better link?

Hi, Ellen,

I've changed these a bit. The way you had them you were basically using citations to cite citations. If you want to use inline citations, you should write a biography and then use the reference tags to cite records related to specific items within the biography. Any sources that you used to create the profile that aren't cited within the biography can go in a "See also" section under the <references /> tag in Sources. To see how I created the citations look at them in edit mode. If you don't like them you should definitely change them back. Just wanted to show you an alternative.

For the blog pages, at the end of the citation, add pp. followed by the page numbers with commas separating the numbers (pp. 7. 12, 28) or if it is a span of pages use a hyphen to show the range (pp. 7-12).

Hope that helps.
