Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template is used to mark articles which are missing the alternative text for images (see WP:ALT). The template is based on Template:Coord missing which uses an identical structure to flag those articles needing geographical coordinates added.

Usage[edit]

{{Alt text missing|optionalpar1|optionalpar2|optionalpar3}}

Parameters[edit]

If no parameters are present then the article will be added to Category:Unclassified articles missing image alternative text.

If parameters are present then the article with be added to Category:optionalpar articles missing image alternative text. That category may need to be created as this template only creates the link – it does not create the category.

The categories should be hidden categories using Template:hiddencat. To view hidden categories, one needs to activate them in Special:Preferences. Under "Misc", there is "Show hidden categories".

Removal of template[edit]

The template should be removed when the alternative text has been added to the article.

Calling this template from other templates[edit]
