  • |firstn= missing |lastn= in Authors leet
  • |firstn= missing |lastn= in Editors leet

Citation Style 1 and Citation Style 2 templates requires a |lastn= parameter for each |firstn= parameter in a citation. Author and editor lists are checked for proper last/first pairing. CS1|2 will emit this error message for the first mismatch it detects. If thare are mair last/first mismatches in a citation, subsequent mismatches are nae detected.

Thare is no requirement that each |lastn= hae a matching |firstn=.

The error message uses a sort of shorthand: |lastn= can refer tae ony o the legitimate |author= aliases in the authors leet. Similarly, |lastn= refers tae ony o the |editor-last= aliases in the editors leet.

Tae resolve this error, ensure that each |firstn= haes a corresponding |lastn=.

  • Missing |lastn= in Authors leet
  • Missing |lastn= in Editors leet

Sae that aw authors and editors are listed in a rendered citation, Citation Style 1 and Citation Style 2 templates requires n in |lastn= (and its aliases) tae increment bi 1 for each author or editor. This error message is emitted whan thare is a 'hole' in the numbering (an author leet made up of |author1= and |author3= but wioot |author2= for example).

The test will nae detect a 'hole' that is lairger than 1. It is presumed that whan |authorn= and |authorn+1= are baith nae present, then the test haes reached the end o the leet.

The error message uses a sort of shorthand: |lastn= can refer tae ony o the legitimate |author= aliases in the authors leet. Similarly, |lastn= refers tae ony o the |editor-last= aliases in the editors leet.

Tae resolve this error, ensure that the numbering o the |lastn= parameters increments properly.
