Location

If using a large, graphical template produces odd layout problems, like the excessive white space shown on the right of this screenshot, then switch to a different sister template.

N Do not place this template in a section all by itself.

N Do not place this template in a section containing columns.

This template should normally be placed at the top of the ==External links== section at the end of an article, if the article has a section for external links. If no such section exists, then please place it at the top of the last section in the article.

On disambiguation pages, this template should be listed above other text, but below any cleanup templates, images, infoboxes or navboxes.

See Wikipedia:Wikimedia sister projects#Where_to_place_links for more information and alternatives.
