{{Unreferenced section|date=March 2019}}

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}}.


  • date= Month and year the section was last checked for referenced: |date=March 2019
  • small=y 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.


This is the TemplateData documentation for this template used by VisualEditor and other tools; see the monthly error report for this template.
