Q. How do I cite a webpage using Citefast?

Answer

Citefast will try to fill in all the information you need for a webpage, if you give it the URL.  But it's not always sufficient.  Always double-check to see what information you can add, e.g., author and date.

This is how Citefast will "automatically" cite a WebMD page (http://www.webmd.com/diet/features/tea-types-and-their-health-benefits#1):

Types of Teas and Their Health Benefits. (n.d.). Retrieved from http://www.webmd.com/diet/features/tea-types-and-their-health-benefits#1

Yet by double-checking information on the page with the information Citefast tries to automatically "read", the citation can be improved to this:

Edgar, J. (2009, March 20). WebMD: Types of Teas and Their Health Benefits. Retrieved May 25, 2017, from http://www.webmd.com/diet/features/tea-types-and-their-health-benefits#1
