It contains usage information, categories and other content that is not part of the original template page.

This template is used to identify a stub, a page that is short for the wiki's standards.

What is a stub?

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

If an article is still short, but long enough not to be a stub, {{expand}} should be used instead.

How is a stub identified?

  • Place a stub template at the very beginning of the article. As usual, templates are added by including their name inside double braces, e.g. {{stub}}.
