Usage[edit]

{{Disputed-inline|Talk page section|date=July 2014}}

To identify the exact statement being disputed, use the |text= parameter (it does not display anything, and is only visible in the wikicode):

{{Disputed-inline|text=disputed content|Talk page section|date=July 2014}}

To link to a centralized discussion on some other page, use the |talk= parameter to give the location:

{{Disputed-inline|talk=Talk:Topic#Talk page section|date=July 2014}}

The parameter |for= can be used to give a short reason that displays in the tag (do not use this for editorializing or any other editor may refactor such a comment out); the comment added here will be preceded by "for:" and the entire comment put in a round-bracketed parenthetical:

{{Disputed-inline|Talk page section|for=conflict with sources cited above|date=July 2014}}

As with most templates, the parameter |reason= can be used to give a somewhat more extended rationale that is only visible in the wikicode:

{{Disputed-inline|Talk page section|date=July 2014|reason=This comes from a self-published source and conflicts with the reliable sources already cited.}}

Articles with disputed statements[edit]

This inline template helps highlight a disputed particular statement or alleged fact, in contrast to the {{Disputed}} and {{Disputed-section}} templates which mark a whole article or section as disputed. This is particularly helpful when there are reliable sources supporting two or more different claims. {{Disputed-inline}} should not be used without also raising the issue on the talk page. When used on an article page, the word "disputed" links to Wikipedia:Disputed statement, and the article is placed in Category:Accuracy disputes or one of its dated sub-categories. This template is a more strongly worded version of {{Dubious}}, which indicates a potential dispute, most often a question about reliable sourcing for the statement/fact at issue; {{Disputed-inline}} indicates that at least one editor believes there is no question that the statement has a verifiability problem.

Other pages[edit]

If this tag is used outside the article namespace, it will not be categorized in an article cleanup category, and the word "disputed" links to Wikipedia:Consensus. It can be used to indicate an unresolved dispute and a talk page topic about the dispute, e.g. an issue at a guideline or WikiProject page. {{Disputed-inline}} should not be used without also raising the issue on the talk page.
