[edit] [purge] Template documentation


Please do not use this template to create a new inline template without discussing and justifying the need for it at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Inline Templates, or the new template is likely to end up at Wikipedia:Templates for deletion.

|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 = <Tooltip 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>}}


Most inline notices use virtually identical formats. This template is designed to provide a single standardized format which can accommodate the different text, links, and categories of individual templates.

For example, [not specific enough to  verify], can be produced with:

|pre-text=not specific enough to&nbsp;
|title=The material in the vicinity of this tag may lack enough specific information to be verifiable
|cat=[[Category:Wikipedia articles needing factual verification]]}}

This methodology allows new inline templates to be created by just filling in the parameters above. This also allows consistent formatting, features, and syntax across the range of templates.

Historical note

This template used to be called "fix-inline" and was moved over a previous "fix" which was part of the same scheme. See history.
