Tried to add a "Further reading" to the article Linguaphone Conversational Course. As far as I know we have no standards for such a section -any thoughts? Should we make a template? --Morgan 18:39, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

I like it. But there's probably no need for a template. I think we should follow the precedent set here; simply place ==Further reading== after {{References}} and list the reading in bullet points below.-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  13:02, 10 March 2012 (UTC)
+1, but I would rather place it after ==See also== and ==External links==. --Amroth 13:18, 10 March 2012 (UTC)
Isn't this what See also is for? --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 13:43, 10 March 2012 (UTC)
My impression is that "See also" is only used for internal links to TG articles.--Morgan 08:14, 11 March 2012 (UTC)
I agree. There is (or should be) a distinction, indeed.-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  09:40, 11 March 2012 (UTC)
I disagree: this is what "See also" is meant for, its very purpose is further reading! --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 10:29, 11 March 2012 (UTC)
I think internal links, external links and publications would all fall under See Also/Further Reading. But I agree with KA that there should be distinction between these different "See also's"/"Further Readings". Most wiki's seem to use "See also" for internal links and "External links" for external links. The only place where I've seen "Further reading" is at wikipedia, and there it refered to paper publications. I think it would be the easiest for readers and editors to stay consistent with other wiki's. However, we could also create one section ("See also" or "Further reading") with subsections for internal links, external links and paper publications. I prefer my first option, though. --Amroth 19:19, 11 March 2012 (UTC)


Alright, trying to sort out the different suggestions:

Amroth (preferable)?

==See also==
*[[X]]
==External links==
*[http X]
==Further reading==
*Miggins, Mr. J.R.R. Tolkein: A Biography

Amroth (alternative)?

==See also==
===Internal links===
*[[X]]
===External links===
*[http X]
===Further reading===
*Miggins, Mr. J.R.R. Tolkein: A Biography

Mith?

==See also==
*[[X]]
*Miggins, Mr. J.R.R. Tolkein: A Biography
==External links==
*[http X]

Or is the latter suggestion to also include external links under "See also"?

Now it's correct. --Amroth 15:24, 12 March 2012 (UTC)
