This is a tracking category for "CS1 and "CS2 citations where any of the author or editor parameters contain some form of 'et al.' either as a separate author/editor (|author6=et al.) or as a suffix added to a name list (|authors=Smith, Jones, et al.) or first name (|first=John, et al.). Pages in this category should only be added by "Module:Citation/CS1.

Use of the |display-authors= parameter, as documented at "Template:Cite journal#Display options, is recommended instead of writing "et al." in an author parameter.


While most of the "Citation Style 1 and "Citation Style 2 error messages are visible to all readers, some remain hidden. Editors who wish to see all of the CS1|2 error messages can do so by updating either their common CSS page or their specific skin's CSS page ("common.css and "skin.css respectively) to include the following:

.citation-comment {display: inline !important;} /* show all Citation Style 1 error messages */

Even with this css installed, older pages in Wikipedia's cache may not have been updated to show these error messages even though the page is listed in one of the tracking categories. A "WP:NULLEDIT will resolve that issue.

The above code is required if you wish to see maintenance category messages:
