Usage

This template should be added at the beginning of articles or sections containing outdated information.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{{Out of date|reason|Talk:Alternative Page}}

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

{{Out of date|reason|section}}
