Hi,

just to let you know, WYSIFTW [1] has been augmented to offer
"one-click references". Only because someone recently said that
Wikipedia is too hard to edit... ;-)

To insert a reference at the cursor position in edit mode, click a
button in the sidebar, enter an ID (PubMed, ISBN, etc.), and the
appropriate "populated" template inside <ref> tags will be inserted.
This uses [[User:Diberri]]s template filling tool [2] via toolserver
(because Dave's tool does not generate JSON/callback directly).

No screenshot, as there is not much to see. Click button, select type,
enter ID, press return or OK, done.

The function also supports URLs and "free text".

Cheers,
Magnus
