This template should be used for press sources which discuss Wikipedia as a project, and links the article's talk page to Wikipedia:Press coverage.

This template automatically adds articles to Category:Wikipedia pages referenced by the press.

Usage

This template takes the following input:

{{Press
 | subject     = article
 | author      = Author
 | title       = Title of press article
 | org         = Media outlet/organization
 | url         = URL to press article
 | date        = Date
 | quote       = Quote
 | archiveurl  = The URL of an archived copy of the page, if (or in case) the url becomes unavailable.
                 Typically used to refer to services like [[WebCite]] and [[Archive.org]].
 | archivedate = Date when the item was archived. Should not be wikilinked.
 | accessdate  = Full date when item was accessed. Should not be wikilinked. 
}}

An optional unnamed parameter allows you to customize the name of the link to Wikipedia:Press coverage. For example, it may be more accurate to read "mentioned unfavorably", in case the original article becomes unavailable.

The |subject= parameter is optional and will display "this article has been mentioned...". Set |subject=template to display "this template has been mentioned..." and so on.

Use |collapsed=yes for a collapsed default display. To include additional sources, affix a number greater than 1 (2, 3, etc.) to additional parameters. Up to 30 sources can be added to the template.
