[edit] [purge] Template-info.svg Template documentation

This template displays the tag above and adds articles to category:Current events or one of its dated subcategories.


Do not subst.

  • Note that every article on Tractor Wiki has a General disclaimer indicating that the article contents may not be accurate.
  • As an advisory to editors, the template may optionally be used in those extraordinary occasions that many editors (perhaps a hundred or more) edit an article on the same day, for example, in the case of natural disasters or other breaking news.
  • It is not intended to be used to mark an article that merely has recent news articles about the topic; if it were, hundreds of thousands of articles would have this template, with no informational consequence.
  • Generally it is expected that this template and its closely related templates will appear on an article for perhaps a day or so, occasionally several days.
  • If you desire that an article be noticed as a topic about or related to a significant current event, see Project:How the Current events page works, and also Project:In the news/Candidates


The template takes three parameters

  • Parameter 1 overrides the word "article"
  • Parameter 2 overrides the word "event"
  • Named parameter "date" categorizes into a monthly sub category for ease of maintenance. This will be added by a bot if omitted.
