When to use

Use this template to indicate that there are currently zero inline citations in the article. For articles with both inline citations and a list of general references, use {{more footnotes}} instead. For articles that do not contain general references, but which need a greater number of citations, use {{refimprove}}.

An inline citation is any system that associates a given piece of an article with a specific citation. The two most popular forms are clickable footnotes (<ref> tags, which produce numbered footnotes like this: [1]) and parenthetical references (e.g., (Smith 2010)). Other articles use manually formatted footnotes or embedded citations. Do not add this tag to articles that use the "wrong" style of inline citation.

How to use

To add this template to an article, copy and paste {{No footnotes|{{subst:DATE}}}}.

  • You can change the word article in "This article" with {{No footnotes|section}}, or customize it, e.g. {{No footnotes|list}} or {{No footnotes|table}}
  • This template will add the article to Category:Articles lacking in-text citations.

This template has a |date= parameter. One way to use this parameter is {{No footnotes|{{subst:DATE}}}} but it can be done more explicitly as {{No footnotes|date=December 2014}} (both result in the same output). If the parameter is left off a bot will add it within a day or so.

The template also has an optional |BLP= parameter. If its value is yes, this will indicate that the article is a biography of a living person, which have higher standards for further reading and external links.

Examples

  • {{No footnotes|section|date=December 2014}}


  • {{No footnotes|BLP=yes|date=December 2014}}
