Automatic method of adding references


Author: stephentfisher

It would be great to have a separate field while editing a page that lets you add a reference
automatically. You could click a button to enter the link text into the article both at the
point needed and at the bottom referencfes section if needed and you would fill in a text
field to describe it and choose what type of reference it is: URL, book, magazine, etc.

Should the ref addition dialog used in advanced toolbar (I think) be included in core?

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
