Category:CS1 maint: Date and year

This is a tracking category for CS1 citations that use |date= and |year=. With the implementation of date checking in Module:Citation/CS1, separate |date= and |year= parameters for CITEREF disambiguation became unnecessary except in the case where |date= holds a year-initial numeric date (YYYY-MM-DD) which style does not support CITEREF disambiguation. Citations that use both parameters should be inspected and where possible the redundant |year= parameter removed and if appropriate, the |date= parameter modified to include the CITEREF disambiguator. Pages in this category should only be added by Module:Citation/CS1.

Editors who use AWB may wish to use this AWB script as an aid to clearing this category.


While most of the Citation Style 1 and Citation Style 2 error messages are visible to all readers, some remain hidden. Editors who wish to see all of the CS1|2 error messages can do so by updating their common or skin CSS stylesheet to include:

.citation-comment {display: inline !important;} /* show all Citation Style 1 error messages */

Even with this css installed, older pages in Wikipedia'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 WP:NULLEDIT will resolve that issue.

The above code is required if you wish to see maintenance category messages:
