Usage

This template produces an error message to be displayed in citation templates, and categorizes the citation as broken.

This template uses two un-named parameters:

  • The first is the message
  • The second is optional and is the template name; it will automatically be wikilinked

The {{para}} template can be used to show parameters.

All pages will show the error message. Main, help and template pages will be placed into Category:Articles with incorrect citation syntax unless |nocat=true.

Example

Markup Renders as
{{Citation error|no {{para|title}} specified|Cite web}}
Error: no |title= specified when using {{Cite web}}
