Click on the following URL to see an example SS page:
That opens a "person page" in Second Site that includes narratives for
multiple people. Note the list of citations after the narrative for the
first person. In this case, I configured Second Site to make the list of
citations using the "short footnote" sentence. If you click on a source
number such as [S26], that will open a "Source Page" with a list of sources
built using the "full footnote" sentence. Any particular source will only
appear ONCE on a source page even though it may appear many times in
citation lists beneath narratives.
Back on the narrative page, notice that the first person has TWO citations
to source 26: one with the CD set to "2, 5" (two pages) and one with the CD
set to "5" (one page). That means there are two links to the source page
entry for source 26. (That source is heavily used, so there are many other
links to it.)
Given that there are many citations to source 26, the source page can't (and
shouldn't) show any specific CD: the source page entry applies to ALL the
citations, not just one of them.
So... when building a *person page*, SS uses the CD to create the citation
entry, but when building the *source page*, SS ignores the CD. If your full
footnote sentence refers to the CD, it should do so conditionally (<[CD]>)
so that there is no "MISSING CD" text in the source page entry for SS.
