This template indicates that the article, itself a part of Wikipedia, cites sources that take information from Wikipedia. Presumably this would be placed at the top of an article.

Usage[edit]

This template also includes support for using the |date= parameter. Adding this parameter sorts the article into subcategories of Category:Articles needing additional references and out of the parent category, allowing the oldest problems to be identified and dealt with first. A bot will add this parameter if it is omitted. Be careful not to abbreviate the date, because then it will automatically add a redlinked category instead of the correct category. The simplest way to use this parameter manually is {{Refimprove|{{subst:DATE}}}} but it can be done more explicitly as {{Refimprove|date=December 2014}} (both result in the same output). Do not use {{Refimprove|date={{subst:DATE}}}}: {{subst:DATE}} includes the leading date=.

Listed below are four examples of usage:

{{Circular}}

{{Circular|date=December 2014}}

{{Circular|section}}

{{Circular|section|{{subst:DATE}}|talk=y}}
