Not to be confused with {{author missing}} or {{date missing}}. They are inline cleanup templates used in articles..

Place this template on any media file which lacks description, author information, date, or any other less-that-critical identification data. Any media bearing this template are automatically added to Category:Wikipedia files lacking a description, which is a subcategory of Category:Images for cleanup.

Media files which lack critical identification data must not be tagged with this template; instead, they must be tagged with {{di-no source}}, {{di-no license}}, etc. for speedy-deletion.

To add a file description, use Template:Information.


{{Description missing [| What's missing] }}
  1. Character written in bold must be typed as shown
  2. Words written in italic must be replaced with appropriate letters
