You may have noticed convenient footnote type citations to references
in various places and I wanted to let everyone know how to do that.
I'll incorporate it into the image submission pages at some point but
here's a quick guide.
First, note that every image, info page, book, and so on have a unique
identifier, called a node id. It'll be the number that appears in the URL
when you are viewing the page.
For example, the most recent image submission is this page:
The node id for that image is 3530.
I frequently cite Arnett's American Insects:
The node id for that book is 2489.
I've been penciling in those numbers in the front of most of my books.
In most browsers, look in the address or hover over a link to discover the node id.
To cite a book, just do [cite:#] or [cite:#,page] or [cite:#,page,page] where #
is the node number, and page is a single page or a range of pages. The pages
will only show up in the hover text though.
You can include a thumbnail link to an image anywhere by specifying
[thumb:#]. Again, # will be the node number for the image.
Here's some examples:
Arnett describes over 17,000 species of North American insects. [cite:2489](1)
Hope this helps!
