The reference is displayed as a number on the page and on click, displays a pop-up with the full reference name and a link to details.

  • Click should take you to URL of reference
  • Make sure mouse-over is nice
  • rename to Reference_Management
  • fix so it becomes ok when not a clean install, but with other trackers
  • There should be two optional fields (one private and public) which are notes about the link to the reference. This could be used to indicate who checked the reference, the page number, etc.
