  • This template should be added to articles which have no internal links. Articles which have some internal links, but are in need of more, should be tagged with {{underlinked}} instead.
  • An optional parameter can be specified to give other Wikipedians an idea of what general topic this article covers so that they may add links relevant to it.
  • This template will add pages to Category:Dead-end pages or one of its dated subcatgories.
  • If a parameter is provided such as {{Dead end|date=August 2014}} then the page is put into a by-date category instead. Another way to do this is to paste the following to the page: {{subst:dated|Dead end}} If the date is left out, a bot will add it.
  • The simplest way to add this template to an article is to copy and paste
    {{Dead end}}
    
    to the top of an article. You may also drop it into the top of a section, but please specify the "|section" option to generate the proper template text.
  • Please do not subst: this template. Use of the {{dated}} template does require a subst:, which is used to save the current date.
  • Please do not include Category pages.
  • Date tagging syntax: {{Dead end|date=August 2014}} or {{Dead end|section|date=August 2014}}
