I am having trouble with citing things from the web. I use the template for web citing and fill everything in, but once I preview my work all of the references show up red stating that I am missing stuff that I have filled in. Any tips on how to fix this problem? --Brebre143 (talk) 23:36, 30 August 2019 (EDT)
- @Brebre143: First, always link to where your problem is, so I can look and don't have to ask. On your journal, your LeGuin reference capitalized "Location" and it should be "location." This is the issue with your other refs, too. No capital letters in the citation elements. (I also tweaked your formatting. Please use paragraphs.) —Grlucas (talk) 08:02, 31 August 2019 (EDT)
If you go down to my resources page (Daisja30 journal) you can see that there's an error with my citations. I have been trying to use previous references for new journal but when I use the code, for example, <ref name=":0" /> , it is not working. Is this the wrong code?--Daisja30 (talk) 14:10, 8 September 2019 (EDT)
- @Daisja30: If you defined that code previously, it will work. I'll check out your journal. —Grlucas (talk) 10:53, 9 September 2019 (EDT)
Replying and Commenting
I was wondering, how do we respond or comment on our classmates’ journals? Should we do this through the discussion page? I just wanted to be clear before I started commenting.--Daisja30 (talk) 13:06, 31 August 2019 (EDT)
- @Daisja30: Good question. Reply directly on the journal as if you were posting to a talk page. —Grlucas (talk) 16:56, 31 August 2019 (EDT)
--Ambersmith5 (talk) 09:26, 9 September 2019 (EDT)- I am trying to figure out how to edit the font of my journal. I have looked through every editing tool and still have not found the font editing tool. Grlucas
- @Ambersmith5: It is unnecessary to change fonts. Please don't. Thanks. —Grlucas (talk) 10:50, 9 September 2019 (EDT)
References and Citing
I have found the resource listed where our journals are and have started going back to previous journals to make corrections. I have been correcting my references but I can not get the retrieved date to tack on to the links.For example in my journal  in the reference section I used the # sign and the other was created when I used the ref tag correctly but the retrieved date did not follow.
