You can use easy citations to cite references in a simple kind of bibliography that is automatically generated at the end of the page. The result of a citation can look like this: cite(reference-id). A typical use of easy citations is to refer to various external web pages from a wiki page cite(thispage). The wiki engine used here is called PmWiki cite(pmwiki) and the easy citations is a so called cookbook recipe cite(easycitations). Note that references do not get a new number just because you cite them again, so citing PmWiki cite(pmwiki) results in the same reference number.
The citation style here used enumerated citations. It is also possible to use a textual citation style, see ??? for an example how to do that.

By default, not all entries in the bibliography database are shown. If you
wish to show an entry with actually referring to it, use the command
