This template identifies a Wikipedia article where one or more sections has content whose accuracy or factual nature is in dispute.


First add a new section to the article's talk page outlining your concerns, then add {{Disputed-section}} to the top of the disputed section in the main article. To include a link from the "disputed section" header to the proper section of the talk page, use {{Disputed-section|talk page section name}}. Articles using this template as shown above are placed into Category:Accuracy disputes.

This template can take an optional date parameter in the format {{Disputed-section|date = <month> <year>}} or {{Disputed-section|talk page section name|date = <month> <year>}}. If the date is not included it will probably be added later by a WP:BOT. Articles using this template with a date are added to Category:Accuracy disputes from <month> <year>.
