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

This template indicates that the article, itself a part of Wikipedia, cites sources that take information from Wikipedia. Presumably this would be placed at the top of an article.


This template also includes support for using the |date= parameter. Adding this parameter sorts the article into subcategories of Category:Articles lacking reliable references and out of the parent category, allowing the oldest problems to be identified and dealt with first. A bot will add this parameter if it is omitted. Be careful not to abbreviate the date, because then it will automatically add a redlinked category instead of the correct category. The simplest way to use this parameter manually is {{Circular|{{subst:DATE}}}} but it can be done more explicitly as {{Circular|date=October 2021}} (both result in the same output). Do not use {{Circular|date={{subst:DATE}}}} as {{DATE}} includes the leading date=.

Listed below are four examples of usage:


{{Circular|date=October 2021}}
