Template:BLP unsourced section

Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

Usage

This template is intended to be placed at the top of sections of articles about living persons that don't have any sources, and are therefore in need of immediate attention. It is a wrapper of the {{BLP unsourced}} template with wording changed to be appropriate for an individual section.

This template also includes support for using the date parameter. Adding this parameter sorts the article into subcategories of Category:Unreferenced BLPs and out of the parent category, allowing the oldest problems to be identified and dealt with first.

This template additionally adds the article to Category:BLP articles lacking sources. This allows editors who keep an eye on biographies and BLP concerns to quickly find articles in need of attention.

Articles with this template are not automatically added to Category:Living people or Category:Possibly living people.

To use this template, add {{BLP unsourced section|date=October 2021}} at the top of biographical sections with no references.
