This template and the similar {{Subscription}} should probably have the same style. See the comment on that template's talk page. —Mrwojo (talk) 01:24, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

Instructions and examples[edit]

If anyone is having trouble understanding the instructions and examples I've tried to clarify a bit more here: Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Inline Templates#Template:Registration required/doc. -- œ 09:36, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

Uses within a paragraph or a bulleted list entry[edit]

(quoting the current template documentation) "Append this template directly after the external link or citation template, leaving the original link intact."

Does this mean "external link template or citation template"? More likely to me, this tag is intended for use with external links that are formed manually, either "within a paragraph" (mentioned earlier in the documentation) or within a bulleted list entry (not mentioned).

The documentation should mention bulleted list entries, perhaps specifically mention the standard External links section. It should illustrate such use of the template (as in documentation of {{subscription required}}) and also some commendable use "within a paragraph".

It means to do it like this in references:
<ref>[http://www.example.com/ Example]{{registration required}}</ref>
<ref>{{cite web |url=http://www.example.com/ |title=Example }}{{registration required}}</ref>
or like this in a bulleted list:
*[http://www.example.com/ Example]{{registration required}}
*{{cite web |url=http://www.example.com/ |title=Example }}{{registration required}}
