[Data unknown/missing.]

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


Use this template when you have a list in which items are missing. These aren't necessarily stubs, because it only is applied when a specific item of information is missing.

Pages using this template are included in Category:Data missing.


If you put in a parameter of "?" then it will shorten it all down to "?" which is useful in very tight spaces such as tables and charts.

If you put any other parameter in, then it will force a line break before the helping link, which is mostly helpful in tables, not in regular text.
