Template:Improve caption

[improve caption]

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

This template can be used to tag image captions that need improvement, or images which need a caption.

UsageEdit

Place this template within the caption of the image. If tagging a caption that needs improvement, place the template directly after the end of the caption's text without a space. If there is a full stop at the end of the caption, place the template directly after the full stop.

For images without any text in the caption, simply place the template in the caption.

See the Template data section for parameters.
