Using display

The mechanics of Wikisource will sometimes require that a link have disambiguation information which is not part of the original title. The display parameter allows this information to be hidden for the purpose of the citation. For example:

{{Americana|wstitle=Monroe (Louisiana) |display=Monroe, La.}}

displays as:

Wikisource-logo.svg This article incorporates text from a publication now in the public domainRines, George Edwin, ed. (1920). "Monroe, La." . Encyclopedia Americana.

Using noicon

{{Americana|wstitle=Cogniet, Leon|noicon=x}}

{{Americana |title=Sterne, Simon}}

displays as:

PD-icon.svg This article incorporates text from a publication now in the public domainRines, George Edwin, ed. (1920). "Sterne, Simon". Encyclopedia Americana.

When title is being used, url can be used to specify an external link. For example:

{{Americana
 |title=Sterne, Simon
 |url=https://books.google.com/books?id=cr9PAAAAMAAJ&pg=PA632
}} At [[Google Books]].

displays as:

Using short

If a shorter citation is desired, containing the editor of the 1920 edition, the long option can be used. For example:

{{Americana|wstitle=Schlatter, Michael|short=x}}

displays as:

Wikisource-logo.svg This article incorporates text from a publication now in the public domain"Schlatter, Michael" . Encyclopedia Americana. 1920.

If another edition besides 1920 is being used, the editor name can be customized using editor-first and editor-last. If used, these two items will be displayed whether or not the long option is specified.
