Category:Articles with broken citations

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Pages are added to this category by various citation templates if they use incorrect syntax (further information at {{Citation error}}). To fix them, view the article and search for red text, including (but not limited to) phrases such as:

  • Error: If you specify |archivedate=, you must also specify |archiveurl=
  • Error: no |title= specified when using {{cite web}}
  • Error: You must specify |name= when using {{cite gnis}}

(you can do this in many web browsers with CTRL+F). Then click the footnote marker ("^") to see which citation is incorrectly specified and how. If you are the editor who used one of the citation templates and ended up with a broken citation, consider reading the pertaining template documentation again.

This category should not be confused with Category:Articles with dead external links, which is added with the {{dead link}} template. Please do not add pages to this category directly.
