Parameters

The year and title are required parameters; all others are optional. This template should be placed on an article's talk page. The section link should be the title of the appropriate section on the Wikipedia page listing all press releases in the given year. The template supports a small=yes parameter to reduce the size of the template. Either the monthday and year, or date and year parameters should be used; note that these dates should not be wikilinked per the guidelines of the Manual of Style (dates and numbers).

Multiple articles can be referenced by adding a number to the end of the parameter names, e.g., year would become year2, up to a maximum of 30 (year30). Both the year and the title parameters are required for each of these subsequent articles.
