An "out of date" flag used to indicate outdated content.


This template should be added at the beginning of articles or sections containing outdated information. Ensure to cite specific concerns with the first argument and possibly also on the flagged article's discussion page.

{{Out of date|reason}}

You can override the default discussion page with a second optional argument:

{{Out of date|reason|Talk:Alternative Page}}

Alternatively you can point to a specific section in the default talk page with the named section parameter:

{{Out of date|reason|section=Section name}}

Flagged pages can be found in Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:Out of date or in Category:Pages or sections flagged with Template:Out of date. If knowledgeable in a subject, users are encouraged to participate to update the article. The {{Out of date}} flag should be removed after correction of dated information.

Note: The talk page is linked through an external link: this is to avoid polluting Special:WantedPages when the talk page does not exist.
