Template:Disputed inline/doc

Usage

<code>{{Disputed inline|Talk page section|date=November 2017}}</code>

To identify the exact statement being disputed, use the |text= parameter (it does not display anything, and is only visible in the wikicode):

<code>{{Disputed inline|text=disputed content|Talk page section|date=November 2017}}</code>

To link to a centralized discussion on some other page, use the |talk= parameter to give the location:

<code>{{Disputed inline|talk=Talk:Topic#Talk page section|date=November 2017}}</code>

The parameter |for= can be used to give a short reason that displays in the tag (do not use this for editorializing or any other editor may refactor such a comment out); the comment added here will be preceded by "for:" and the entire comment put in a round-bracketed parenthetical:

<code>{{Disputed inline|Talk page section|for=conflict with sources cited above|date=November 2017}}</code>

As with most templates, the parameter |reason= can be used to give a somewhat more extended rationale that is only visible in the wikicode:

<code>{{Disputed inline|Talk page section|date=November 2017|reason=This comes from a self-published source and conflicts with the reliable sources already cited.}}</code>

{{Disputed inline}} should not be used without also raising the issue on the talk page.

Articles with disputed statements

This inline template helps highlight a disputed particular statement or alleged fact, in contrast to the {{Disputed}} and {{Disputed section}} templates which mark a whole article or section as disputed. This is particularly helpful when there are reliable sources supporting two or more different claims. {{Disputed inline}} should not be used without also raising the issue on the talk page. When used on an article page, the word "disputed" links to Wikipedia:Disputed statement, and the article is placed in Category:Accuracy disputes or one of its dated sub-categories. This template is a more strongly worded version of {{Dubious}}, which indicates a potential dispute, most often a question about reliable sourcing for the statement/fact at issue; {{Disputed inline}} indicates that at least one editor believes there is no question that the statement has a verifiability problem.

Other pages

If this tag is used outside the article namespace, it will not be categorized in an article cleanup category, and the word "disputed" links to Wikipedia:Consensus. It can be used to indicate an unresolved dispute and a talk page topic about the dispute, e.g. an issue at a guideline or WikiProject page.

For pages other than articles, {{Under discussion-inline}} may be more appropriate.
