Cite uses deprecated parameter |<param>

Over time, some parameters have become obsolete or unnecessary. When this happens, the parameters are identified as deprecated. Editors are encouraged to use other parameters that accomplish the same purpose as those that have been deprecated. The CS1|2 deprecated parameters are listed in the following table, along with recommended replacement parameters. Parameter names are case-sensitive. Editors should expect that support for deprecated parameters will be withdrawn.

Deprecated CS1/CS2 parameters
Deprecated parameter Replace with
|class= Supported only by {{cite arXiv}} – remove, or use {{cite arXiv}} if appropriate.
|deadurl= |url-status= to one of the following values as appropriate: dead, live, unfit, usurped
|laysummary= |lay-url=
|registration= Set one of the following to subscription or registration as appropriate: |url-access=, |chapter-url-access=, |entry-url-access=, |article-url-access=, |section-url-access= (detailed documentation here).

To resolve this error, use a supported parameter.

Pages with this error are automatically placed in Category:CS1 errors: deprecated parameters.[a]

By default, Citation Style 1 and Citation Style 2 error messages are visible to all readers and maintenance category messages are hidden from all readers.

To display maintenance messages, include the following text in your common CSS page or your specific skin's CSS page (common.css and skin.css respectively):

.mw-parser-output span.cs1-maint {display: inline;} /* display Citation Style 1 maintenance messages */

Even with this css installed, older pages in Gpedia'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 null edit will resolve that issue.

To hide error messages:

.mw-parser-output span.cs1-visible-error {display: none;} /* hide Citation Style 1 error messages */

You can personalize the display of these messages (such as changing the color), but you will need to ask someone who knows CSS or at the technical village pump if you do not understand how.
