Missing or empty |title=

This error occurs for CS1 citations when all of the associated title parameters are omitted or left blank. Depending on the type of citation ({{cite web}}, {{cite book}}, {{cite journal}}, etc.), the possible title parameters may include |title=, |chapter=, |article=, |journal=, |booktitle=, and so forth. At least one such title parameter must be provided for each citation.

Sometimes this error occurs because an editor has used a CS1 citation as a shortened footnote when {{sfn}} or one of the {{harv}} family of templates would have been more appropriate. This error also occurs when an editor used {{citation|date=<some date>}} but intended to use {{citation needed|date=<some date>}}.

To resolve this error, provide a value for |title= or replace the CS1 citation with a more appropriate template.

Pages with this error are automatically placed in Category:Pages with citations lacking titles.[a]
