Template:Bare URL inline

[bare URL]

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

This template is an inline alternative to {{Cleanup bare URLs}}.

Usage

Paste this after a bare-URL reference/link:

{{Bare URL inline|date=December 2021}}

Examples:

With a <ref> tag:

  • <ref>https://www.salon.com/2020/01/31/the-disaster-of-utopian-engineering_partner/</ref>{{bare URL inline|date=December 2021}}

References

It can also be done inside a citation, just before the closing </ref> tag:

  • <ref>https://www.salon.com/2020/01/31/the-disaster-of-utopian-engineering_partner/ {{bare URL inline|date=December 2021}}</ref>

This will still categorize the page for cleanup without cluttering the present paragraph with "[bare URL]", and it will also help track down the citation to improve by keeping the cleanup tag in the citation. When doing it this way, the date must be manually entered; it cannot be done with the {{Bare URL inline|{{subst:DATE}}}} shortcut method, because template substitution does not work inside <ref>...</ref> tags.
