Usage

This template tags an article for copy editing and should be added at the top of the article page.

{{Copy edit|for=|date=August 2014}}

Do not subst: this template.

This template is a self-reference.

Optional parameters

  • This template takes an optional parameter that replaces the word "article" in the displayed message with arbitrary text. For example, {{copy edit|section}} displays "This section needs copy editing."
  • This template takes the optional parameter |for= (a.k.a. |reason=) which can be used to explain what issues need to be addressed, e.g. |for=consistent spelling. The default value is "grammar, style, cohesion, tone, or spelling".
  • This template takes the optional parameter |date=, with the format |date=August 2014. An expedient way to enter it is |subst:{{DATE}} instead of using |date= directly.
  • This template will auto-categorize tagged articles into Category:Wikipedia articles needing copy edit, or a dated subcategory thereof. However, if the optional parameter and value |categories=no is set, the template will not categorize the page.
