Category:CS1 errors: contributor

This is a tracking category for CS1 and CS2 templates that cite a secondary author's contribution to a book.

|contributor= ignored

Only used in book citations, |contributor= identifies the author of a contribution, typically an afterword, forward, introduction, preface, etc., to another (primary) author's work. This error occurs when |contributor= is used in a template that is not {{cite book}} or {{citation}} or is one of these two templates and one of the |work= parameter aliases is set.

To resolve this error, choose a more appropriate CS1 or CS2 template or remove |contributor=.

Pages with this error are automatically placed in Category:CS1 errors: contributor.[a]

  • |contributor= requires |author=
  • |contributor= requires |contribution=

Only used in book citations, |contributor= identifies the author of a contribution, typically an afterword, forward, introduction, preface, etc., to another (primary) author's work. As such, the primary author is required (|author= or appropriate alias) as is the title of the contribution (|contribution=).

To resolve this error, include the book's primary author in |author1=, or |last1=, |first1=, or |vauthors= and include the contribution title in |contribution=; or remove |contributor=.

Pages with this error are automatically placed in Category:CS1 errors: contributor.[a]
