  1. The reference for the collection optional
    • If omitted the URL for the site will be displayed
  2. The text to be displayed in the link. optional
    • If omitted the reference number will be displayed instead.
  3. access= optional named parameter. If the parameter is omitted it will default to the correct output for searchable collections
