Make the form of cite link customizable via message
Closed, DeclinedPublic

I read somewhere that the only reason the citation numbers have brackets around them is to make a larger click target. I think it looks much better to have superscripted numbers without brackets, like any normal publication. If you need a bigger click target for the number, use CSS to increase the size of the clickable whitespace around it.

Event Timeline

bzimport raised the priority of this task from to Medium.Nov 21 2014, 9:49 PM
bzimport added a project: Cite.
bzimport set Reference to bz11075.
bzimport added a subscriber: Unknown Object (MLST).

Fully customizable solution such as using MediaWiki:Citelinkformat or so would be better, since different norms for different languages could have different forms of writing of reference numbers.

Changed topic to reflect on this.
