Template:Low quality link/doc

From FamilySearch Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Use {{low quality link}} when you find a link within a paragraph or a reference citation that use a poor choice of words as the link. Doing so will place a note by the URL and add the article to the Category:Articles with low quality links category.

Further information: FamilySearch Wiki:Linking

Append this template directly after the link or template, leaving the original link intact. Not doing so will prevent detection from automated tools. This tag should be placed just before the </ref> that contains the low quality link. The notice will then appear in the footnote reference (instead of in the body of the text, which is not recommended).
