[edit] [purge] Template documentation

This meta-template can be used to create in-line clean up messages which can be used to tag article issues on a line-by-line basis. Many templates are based upon it, like {{Citation needed}}.

It should not be used directly on articles by itself - instead, use one of the pre-existing derivatives if at all possible. Should there be no suitable derivative already, new ones can be created using the syntax below.


{{ Fix
| substcheck= <includeonly>{{subst:</includeonly><includeonly>substcheck}}</includeonly>
| link      = <Page which text should link to, without brackets> (default = Wikipedia:Cleanup)
| text      = <Text to be displayed for the link>
| pre-text  = <Optional text to print before the linked text>
| post-text = <Optional text to print after the linked text>
| class     = <Class to set text to> (default = "noprint Inline-Template"; neither should be removed, but additional classes can be added, e.g. "noprint Inline-Template FooBarBazQuux")
| title     = <Tool--tip text to display when mouse is hovered over link>
| special   = <Optional replacement for text, link, title, pre-text, and post-text - allowing user to define a non-standard format>
| date      = <Optional date parameter to be displayed at end of 'title' and/or in cat-date>
| cat       = <Category to include page in>
| cat-date  = <Category to include page in - with optional date parameter in the category name>

Categories are ignored if the template is used on a talk page or on any other non-article page.

The value specified via |cat= must be in wikicode, including square brackets.

The value specified via |cat-date= is used as part of a category name. It must be specified without square brackets, but with a "Category:" prefix. The full category name is obtained from the cat-date value, the word "from", and the date value. For example, given
|cat-date=Category:Articles with dead external links
|date=November 2020

...the article will be placed in Category:Articles with dead external links from November 2020.
