This page is a template. It contains no Arch Linux-related information, but should be used as part of other articles. For more information, read Help:Template.

Please do not experiment with this template; you could ruin all pages using this template. If you want to edit this template, copy the text to Template:Sandbox, edit and test it there, and copy it back when it works.

Feel free to voice your opinion regarding this template.

An "expansion" flag used to indicate incomplete articles.

Usage

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

{{Expansion|reason}}

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

{{Expansion|reason|Talk:Alternative Page}}

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

{{Expansion|reason|section=Section name}}

Flagged pages can be found in Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:Expansion or in Category:Pages or sections flagged with Template:Expansion. If knowledgeable in a subject, users are encouraged to participate to expand the article or section and remove the {{Expansion}} flag when finished.

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

Example

{{Expansion|This is just a demonstration template.}}

Tango-view-fullscreen.pngThis article or section needs expansion.Tango-view-fullscreen.png

Reason: This is just a demonstration template. (Discuss in Template talk:Expansion#)
