How do I publish a bibliography? I want to create a sorted list of references and cite these from other pages.
Solution
We define a bibliography by wrapping an itemised list (* markup) of references in a (:bib:) ... (:bibend:) block. Each item in the bibliography list consists of a key name (the unique identifier of the item) followed by the text value of the reference — the place (physical or online) where the item may be found. Wikipublisher sorts the list into key name order.

An entry typically consists of author, year, title, publisher, and perhaps a url. If an item ends with an ISO date enclosed in double quotes, this gets translated into an “accessed on” note. Individual items may be edited by clicking the edit link against that item. The very long url addresses in the example are typeset to split on suitable characters and wrap onto multiple lines.

A future release may provide a way to define each reference item as a set of field/value pairs. This will give us more control over how references are formatted.

For more information, see the Bibliographies User Guide. A future tip will cover how to cite the items listed in a bibliography.
