Usage[change source]

This template also has several optional fields.

If you pass in an unnamed parameter, it specifies which part of the article inappropriately relies solely on primary sources. By default, it reports the entire article as using primary sources. To be more specific on which section of the article needs secondary sourcing, add the following to the top of the relevant section:

{{Primary sources|section|date=September 2018}}

Specifying the |date= parameter (month year) sorts the article into subcategories of Category:Articles lacking reliable references and out of the parent category. This in turn allows the oldest problems to be identified and dealt with first.
