Cite on the OpenstreetMap wiki

Posted by Guttorm Flatabø on 16 October 2011 in English (English)

I wanted to cite a page on the Openstreetmap wiki, and looked for "Cite" in the toolbox, but it looks like the Cite plugin isn't installed.

Where can I ask for it to be installed?

As OSM data is being used more and more there will be a need for citing the features pages especially, and the Cite plugin hadles it very well, and integrates with the Zotero citation software.

Update: The Cite plugin is installed, but the "Cite this page" feature that is available from the Toolbox menu on Wikipedia articles is not available on the OpenStreetMap wiki.

After some research it looks like the SpecialCite.php extension is needed in addition.

Cite extension is installed... May need configuration.

Hm, ok, the extension description (on Wikipedia at least, didn't check if you have very differing version) mentions link to toolbox, but the page about the extension doesn't mention the toolbox link....

Some of us may have never heard of "cite". It would be nice to provide a link so the ignorant can get themselves informed.
Thank-you

I've updated the post. After some research it looks like the SpecialCite.php extension is needed in addition.
