Category:CS1 errors: display-names

From MEpedia, a crowd-sourced encyclopedia of ME and CFS science and history

This is a tracking category for CS1 citations that have malformed |display-<names>= parameters, for example |display-authors=6 where there are only 5 or 6 authors.

These error messages are emitted when Module:Citation/CS1 identifies citations that use one or more of the |display-<names>= parameters with an invalid assigned <value>. An invalid assigned <value> is a number that is greater than or equal to the number of <names> in the associated name-list or it is non-numeric text that Module:Citation/CS1 cannot recognize as a form of the keyword etal.
To resolve this error, do one of the following:

  • Remove the |display-<names>= parameter from the citation (because "et al." is not appropriate in the citation)
  • Change the <value> of the |display-<names>= parameter such that it is less than the number of <names> in the name-list (thereby truncating the displayed list to the number)
  • Change the <value> of the |display-<names>= parameter to etal, which will cause "et al" to display after the last <name>.
