Template:Empty section/doc

From SlyMods
Jump to navigation Jump to search

May be placed in a section that is completely empty, containing neither text nor sub-sections.

Usage[edit source]

{{Empty section|date=September 2023}}
{{Empty section|small=no|date=September 2023}}
{{Empty section|small=no|find=search keywords|date=September 2023}}

Parameters[edit source]

  • |date= : month and year the section was last checked for references; e.g., |date=September 2023
  • |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).

Date[edit source]

The |data= parameter sorts the article into subcategories of Category:Articles to be expanded, allowing the oldest problems to be identified and dealt with first. You do not need to specify the date manually; a bot will add it later automatically.

Template Data[edit source]

This is the TemplateData documentation for this template used by VisualEditor and other tools.

TemplateData for Empty section

Maintenance template to be placed in sections that are empty, containing neither text nor sub-sections. Before tagging an empty section, consider removing the section heading instead – for example, an empty "Gallery", "See also" or "External links" section can safely be deleted. Puts articles into [[Category:Articles with empty sections]] and [[Category:Articles to be expanded]].
