[edit] Template-info.svg Template documentation

This template is to be used for pages that need to be corrected. If the article is recent enough to simply correct then re-publish, then don't use this template. If it has been at least one day, then use this template instead.

To see a list of articles that use this template, see Category:Corrected articles.

Usual syntax

{{correction
| date=Date you publish the correction
| explanation=The correction you have to make, plus an article related to the error if applicable
}}

There is also an optional parameter label that can be used to override the Correction label in the banner. For example,

{{correction
| label=Notice
| date=February 29, 2009
| explanation=Some dates in this article may be inaccurate.
}}

would produce

 
Notice — February 29, 2009
 
Some dates in this article may be inaccurate.
