Template:Unreferenced

From Wikiquote
Jump to: navigation, search

  • Using this template on a page automatically adds the page to Category:Articles lacking sources. To display a sample of the template without adding the page to the category, use {{Unreferenced|categories=no}} .
  • This template is a self-reference.
  • This template is not useful for w:Wikipedia:Subst.
  • There is currently no policy about where to place this template; most on Wikipedia suggest either the bottom of the article page (in an empty "References" section), or on the article's talk page.
  • If the external links section includes a references section, this template should not be used. Use {{fact}} instead for specific quotes that need sources.

Usage[edit]

This template has one optional definable field, which permits the user to be specific in what needs to be cited. For instance, if the entire article needs to be sourced, a user would enter:

{{unreferenced|article}}

Should a user wish to be more specific on which section of the article needs to be sourced, then the user would enter in:

{{unreferenced|article's section called "Childhood"}}

Leaving the template undefined is acceptable, as it will print out the default text listed on this template page.
