[contradictory]

Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template is used to mark sentences or phrases that contradict other material in the same page by default, or a different page if one is specified.

Usage

Append this template immediately after the contradictory material, and use one or more of the parameters below to specify the nature of the contradiction.

Parameters

No links or other wikimarkup, and no double quotes, in these parameter values, except as noted below. This content appears in the mouse-over tooltip, when hovering over the template's "Contradictory" output. This feature cannot support links, italics, or other markup, and chokes on double quotes (use single, or the character entity code " to generate a double quote character).

Unnamed parameter (may be named explicitly as |1= or |article=)
Title of mainspace article with which the material is in conflict, e.g. |article=Dove, and may contain a # anchor to a section, e.g. |article=Dove#Domestication, though it will be more legible to specify the section with the |section= parameter below: |article=Dove|section=Domestication.
|page=
Title of a non-article (and optionally a section within it, or use |section=) with conflicting material, e.g. the article's talk page: |page=Talk:Pigeon#New sources on genetics or |page=Talk:Pigeon|section=New sources on genetics. When the template is used in a non-article (e.g. a Wikipedia guideline page), this parameter and the above one are equivalent.
|section=
Name of a section (or other HTML anchor) in the present page or other page, to be more specific about whether the material is with which the tagged content conflicts; do not use the # symbol. When used alone, it indicates a section on the current page, e.g. |section=Modern genetic research. When used with either of the above two parameters, indicates a section on the other page, e.g. |Dove|section=Domestication.
|reason=
Used to replace the entire output of the mouse-over tooltip,[under discussion] to provide an alternative explanation about the nature of the conflicting information. Use the talk page for detailed information, as the tooltip cannot supply a large amount of content (depending on browser, there are limits to both the amount of content that can be included, and the length of time it will display; it needs to be readable in a few seconds).
|date=October 2018
To date the addition of the tag. If you leave this parameter off, a bot will add it later.

Categorisation

This template may categorise tagged articles, depending on parameters.

  1. If it is used in an article, and no conflicting article is specified, the article will be categorised into Category:All self-contradictory articles.
  2. If it is used in an article and a conflicting article is specified, the article in which the template appears will be categorised into Category:Articles contradicting other articles.

Examples

In the following examples, the word "page" will actually be "article" if the template is used inside an actual article, and parameter 1 (a.k.a. article) is used.
