Category:CS1 maint: BOT: original-url status unknown

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



This is a tracking category for CS1 citations that use the bot-specific parameter value |dead-url=bot: unknown. The keyword bot: unknown is intended for use by bots to identify original urls that are alive but not confirmed to link to appropriate material. Editors should review these urls and adjust the value assigned to |dead-url= accordingly. Pages in this category should only be added by Module:Citation/CS1.


By default, Citation Style 1 and Citation Style 2 error messages are visible to all readers and maintenance category messages are hidden from all readers.

To display maintenance messages, include the following text in your common CSS page or your specific skin's CSS page (common.css and skin.css respectively):

.mw-parser-output .cs1-maint {display: inline;} /* display Citation Style 1 maintenance messages */

Even with this css installed, older pages in Wikipedia's cache may not have been updated to show these error messages even though the page is listed in one of the tracking categories. A null edit will resolve that issue.

To hide error messages:

.mw-parser-output .cs1-visible-error {display: none;} /* hide Citation Style 1 error messages */

You can personalize the display of these messages (e.g. change the color), but you will need to ask someone who knows CSS or at the technical village pump if you do not understand how.
