This template may be used to attribute content:

  1. Imported into Wikipedia from FOLDOC before November 2008. Such material is covered by Wikipedia's licensing change to GFDL 1.3, which contained wording permitting for dual licensing to CC-BY-SA.
  2. Currently hosted at FOLDOC as a normal attribution template, optionally including an article name.

Usage[edit]

This template should be placed in the "References" or "External links" section.

Optionally, a parameter can be passed with the name of the current article at the FOLDOC site. For example:
