This template is used to indicate that an article with "In popular culture" lists that may contain a long list of minor or unimportant references. See Wikipedia:Trivia sections and Wikipedia:Handling trivia for further guidance. It may be placed at the top of a section, or at the top of the article if the issue affects the whole article.


This template should not be substituted.

Place {{In popular culture|date=February 2015}} at the top of an article containing too many non-notable "in popular culture" entries.

If the issue pertains only to a particular section, add {{In popular culture|section|date=February 2015}} to the top of it. The word "section" can also be changed to other words as necessary, such as "list" or "template."

A |talk= parameter is allowed; setting this to the name of the subsection on the talk page will cause a link to appear to it.

The |small= parameter can be used. Setting this to "left" will cause the template to reduce in size and appear on the left of the page.

This template also includes support for using the |date= parameter. Adding this parameter sorts the article into subcategories of Category:Articles with trivia sections and out of the parent category, allowing the oldest problems to be identified and dealt with first. A bot will add this parameter if it is omitted. Be careful not to abbreviate the date, because then it will automatically add a redlinked category instead of the correct category.

This template sorts articles into Category:Articles with trivia sections from February 2015, a hidden category.
