Usage tips

When you put this template on a Wikipedia article, please be kind to the regular Wikipedians who are working on those articles. This should be placed at the bottom of the article, usually the External links section. Sometimes it simply won't fit within the Wikipedia article at the bottom, so you may have to use some judgement: think about using the in-line version, {{Cite EB1911}}, and/or enlisting the cooperation of Wikipedians who normally edit the article, particularly if it is a larger and more popular article with many recent changes.

Hidden categories

There is a hidden maintenance category created by this template:

All the templates have to have a unnamed parameter for the name of the EB1911 article on Wikisource because any article does not have such a parameter, if the Wikipedia article is moved it will break the link to the article on Wikisource. It also means that if the Wikisource article is renamed finding any links to it are easier. So adding a parameter is a fail safe.
