    I want to make a wiki edit but it's a bit overwhelming!
    I want to add a bit to a paragraph and add a citation from one of my websites.
    How do you properly add citation?

    Yeah I read that. It says they don't like website citations now because of deadlinks?
    How can I drop a link in there then?

    You are talking wikipedia?

    Sorry I missed that; I'll post my method at a future date so people can see what I do for that.

    Wikipedia has a tool to generate citations for particular articles. For the cite tool, see Special:Cite, or follow the "Cite this page" link on the left of the page with the article you wish to cite.

    Wot? That's to cite their site on yours, not insert your link.
