Examples

Using wstitle

{{cite DNB|wstitle=Sheldon, Gilbert|last=Hutton|first=William Holden|authorlink=William Holden Hutton|volume=52}}

displays as:

Hutton, William Holden (1897). "Sheldon, Gilbert" . In Lee, Sidney (ed.). Dictionary of National Biography. 52. London: Smith, Elder & Co.

Using section

Sometimes a biography article includes other members of a family who are notable but are not considered notable enough to have their own entry. For example the DNB article on Sir Richard Wynn, 2nd Baronet appears in the DNB article "Wynn, John" (1553–1626) under the section name of "Sir Richard Wynn" (d. 1649). A section name can be given to access this sub-article:

{{cite DNB|wstitle=Wynn, John |section=Wynn, Richard |volume=63}}

displays as:

Lee, Sidney, ed. (1900). "Wynn, John § Wynn, Richard" . Dictionary of National Biography. 63. London: Smith, Elder & Co.

Using title and url

The title, url, and accessdate are deprecated. They were used to reference non-Wikisource locations before the entire DNB became available on Wikisource. They should not be used unless there is some compelling reason to do so: please leave an inline comment to justify this and leave a comment in the talk page of this template doc. Please convert any existing title/url to wstitle if you find one.
