Usage

To signal that freshly updated material from a particular article is featured on the ITN column on the Main Page, for example, on 21 July 2017, copy and paste the following onto the article's talkpage:

{{ITN talk|date=21 July 2017}}

This will display the following:

This will show the date the article appeared on the ITN column and add it to Category:Wikipedia In the news articles, a listing of all the articles that appeared in the column.

  • To include a link to the daily Portal:Current events page for that date, add the parameter 'alt', as in {{ITN talk|date=21 July 2017|alt=yes}}. Note that in some cases the portal may have mentioned the news item on a different date, or may not have mentioned it at all.
  • To include a link to a relevant oldid of the Template:In the news template itself, add the parameter 'oldid', for example {{ITN talk|date=21 July 2017|oldid1=497003009}}.

Multiple dates

The template will accept up to five different dates, using |daten=, |oldidn= or |altn=, where n is a whole number between 1 and 5. Alternatively use |alt=yes without a number to link all dates to Portal:Current events. For example,

{{ITN talk
|date1=September 1 2005
|date2=June 4 2010
|date3=June 7 2010
|date4=June 13 2010
|alt=yes}}

produces the following:
