Note: This documentation has been transcluded from the /doc subpage of this template at Template:Inline tag/doc. All documentation, categories, etc. should go there.


This meta-template is used to create "inline tag" templates. These tags are usually affixed to particular statements within the text directly (e.g. {{vague}} and {{fact}}), as opposed to creating a box tag at the top of the page (e.g. {{cleanup}}).

For example, for the {{fact}} tag, you can affix it to the end of a dubious or controversial statement, or one needing citation. (Note: This example is a pretty blatant one - in this particular case, it would be preferable to look it up, see that it's obviously false and fix it rather than tag it).

The cello's primary role in the orchestra has historically been as a bass voice. However, beginning in the 1850s,[citation needed] concerti and unaccompanied cello works began appearing.


{{inline tag|tag text|tag category|link=tag link}}
tag text
The text that appears in the tag - for example, in {{fact}}, it's "citation needed".
tag category
Optional. The category into which the page should be placed when a statement is affixed with the tag.
link (named)
Optional. The article that the tag should link to. If none is given, the category is linked to. If no category is given, the tag is not linked.
