[bare URL]

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

This template is an inline alternative to {{Cleanup bare URLs}}.


Paste this after a bare-URL reference/link:

{{Bare URL inline|date=November 2021}}


With a <ref> tag:

  • <ref></ref>{{bare URL inline|date=November 2021}}


  1. ^ "The disaster of utopian engineering". 31 January 2020.

It can also be done inside a citation, just before the closing </ref> tag:

  • <ref> {{bare URL inline|date=November 2021}}</ref>


This will still categorize the page for cleanup without cluttering the present paragraph with "[bare URL]", and it will also help track down the citation to improve by keeping the cleanup tag in the citation. When doing it this way, the date must be manually entered; it cannot be done with the {{Bare URL inline|{{subst:DATE}}}} shortcut method, because template substitution does not work inside <ref>...</ref> tags.
