Template:Unreferenced section

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

Usage

{{Unreferenced section|date=June 2020}}

Only use this template when the section completely lacks references. For sections with some but too few references, use {{Refimprove section}} instead.

This template puts articles in Category:Articles needing additional references or a dated subcategory thereof. If you leave the date off, a bot will add it later. To fill the date automatically, you can use {{subst:unreferenced section}}.

Parameters

  • |date=: month and year the section was last checked for referenced; e.g., |date=June 2020
  • |small=: Any value (typically "y", "yes", etc.) will make the template smaller. The template should normally be full-width when it applies to an entire section.
