Template documentation​[​view​] [edit] [history] [purge]
This template is used on approximately 31,000 pages and changes may be widely noticed. Test changes in the template's /sandbox or /testcases subpages, or in your own user subpage. Consider discussing changes on the talk page before implementing them.
Usage
{{Unreferenced section|date=May 2021}}
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}}
.
Sample usage using optional "find" param:
{{Unreferenced section|find=search keyword(s)|date=May 2021}}
Parameters
  • |date= : month and year the section was last checked for references; e.g., |date=May 2021
  • |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.
  • |find= : any search string. This optional parameter adds a set of links produced by the {{find sources}} template to the output. If omitted, no "find sources" links are displayed.
