[needs copy edit]

Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

Usage[edit]

This template tags a statement for basic copyediting, and should be placed after the statement.

{{Copy edit inline|for=|date=March 2021}}

Do not subst: this template.

This template is a self-reference.

Optional parameters[edit]

  • This template takes the optional parameter |for= (a.k.a. |reason=) which can be used to change the hover text, e.g. |for=The text preceding this tag needs copy editing for tone. The default value is "The text preceding this tag may require copy editing for grammar, style, cohesion, tone, or spelling.".
  • This template takes the optional parameter |date=, with the format |date=March 2021. An expedient way to enter it is |subst:{{DATE}} instead of using |date= directly.
  • This template will auto-categorise tagged articles into Category:Wikipedia articles needing copy edit, or a dated subcategory thereof. However, if the optional parameter and value |categories=no is set, the template will not categorise the page.

This inline template should be used to mark sentences or paragraphs requiring copy editing.
