Template documentation (for the above template, sometimes hidden or invisible)[view] [edit] [history] [refresh]

Transcluded from Template:Stub documentation

This is a stub template. A brief explanation of these templates follows.

What is a stub?

A stub is an article containing only a few sentences of text that is too short to provide encyclopedic coverage of a subject.

How is a stub identified?

  • If possible, try to find the most appropriate stub template for the article.
  • Two or more different stub templates may be used, if necessary, though no more than four should be used on any article.
  • Place a stub template at the very end of the article, after the “External links” section, any navigation templates, and the category tags.
    • As usual, templates are added by including their name inside double braces, e.g., {{stub}}.

Further information

Further information can be found at:

New stub templates and categories — collectively, “stub types” — should not be created without prior proposal at the Noticeboard. This allows for the proper coordination of all stub types across Math Wiki, and for the checking of any new stub type for possible problems prior to its creation.
