Category:Pages using formatting templates incorrectly

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
This category is used for administration of the Wikipedia project, and is not part of the encyclopedia. It contains pages which are not articles, or lists articles by status, rather than content.

This is a hidden category. It is not normally shown on its member pages.

These pages use one or more formatting templates incorrectly. They have been added to this category through {{FormattingError}}. Any page listed here should either do so on purpose, or be fixed as soon as possible. You should be able to easily identify the errors on each page by looking for a big red error message. Each formatting error is marked using an anchor, so you can also find the first formatting error on the page by typing #FormattingError at the end of the URL (e.g. Template:[Name of template]#FormattingError). This can be made easy by creating a bookmark in your browser for "javascript:void(location+='#FormattingError');", which can be used on any page to scroll to the error. Please make sure the page is gone from the list after your fix - there may be more than one error!

Incorrect category assignment[change | edit source]

Pages can sometimes show up in this category incorrectly. For unknown reasons, if a page has had a FormattingError in the past, it may continue to be reported as being in this category, even after the problem has been fixed. A way to temporarily fix this issue is to do a dummy edit; edit the page in question, don't make any change, and save the page as is. Unfortunately, there is a good chance that the page will re-appear after a few minutes. This is probably caused by a bug in MediaWiki, which will be reported and hopefully fixed soon.
