Usage

{{Unreferenced section|date=December 2021}}

Only use this template when the section completely lacks references. For sections with some but too few references, use {{Refimprove section}} instead.

This template puts articles in Category:Articles needing additional references or a dated subcategory thereof. If you leave the date off, a bot will add it later. To fill the date automatically, you can use {{subst:Unreferenced section}}.

Sample usage using optional "find" param:

{{Unreferenced section|find=search keyword(s)|date=December 2021}}

Parameters

  • |date= : month and year the section was last checked for references; e.g., |date=December 2021
  • |small= : Any value (typically "y", "yes", etc.) will make the template smaller. The template should normally be full-width when it applies to an entire section.
  • |find= : search keywords for {{find sources}} param 1 (double-quoted search). This optional parameter adds a set of links produced by the {{find sources}} template to the output. If omitted, no "find sources" links are displayed.
  • |find2= : search keywords for {{find sources}} param 2 (unquoted search). Alias: unquoted.
