{{documentation subpage}}

This is the {{tl|Expand section}} message box.

It can be placed at the top of article sections that need expansion, ''below'' the section title. It can also be used on other pages such as in "FamilySearch Wiki:" space. (This template currently only uses the "article message box" style, but that is a bug we are going to fix.)

This template can be used without any parameters, like this:

:{{tlc|Expand section}}

{{Expand section}}

It can also take the current month and year as a parameter, which is used in categorising the page into a corresponding category. (See more on that below.) Like this:

:{{tlc|Expand section|2=date={{CURRENTMONTHNAME}} {{CURRENTYEAR}} }}

or

:{{tlc|Expand section|<nowiki>{{subst:DATE}}</nowiki>}}

{{Expand section|date={{CURRENTMONTHNAME}} {{CURRENTYEAR}} }}

There are [[FamilySearch Wiki:Bot policy|bots]] that edit the pages and add the '''date''' parameter if you forget to do it. The date parameter causes no visible change in the message box itself, it only makes the page categorise properly.

This template can also take a {{para|1}} parameter with an explanation of what expansion the section needs. And you can of course feed the date parameter at the same time. Like this:

:{{tlc|Expand section|1=examples and additional citations|3=date={{CURRENTMONTHNAME}} {{CURRENTYEAR}} }}

{{Expand section|1=examples and additional citations|date={{CURRENTMONTHNAME}} {{CURRENTYEAR}} }}

When multiple expansion issues need to be raised, a bullet list can be made:

:{{tlc|Expand section|1{{=}}&lt;nowiki /&gt;<br />* Career from 1952 to 1960<br />* Final days after 1972 retirement<br />
|<nowiki>{{subst:DATE}}</nowiki>}}

{{Expand section|1=<nowiki />
* Career from 1952 to 1960
* Final days after 1972 retirement
|date={{CURRENTMONTHNAME}} {{CURRENTYEAR}}}}

(The <code>&lt;nowiki /&gt;</code> is required or the first item will not display correctly.) If this list would be longer than three items, it is probably best just raise the issues on the talk page.

== Categorisation ==

When this template is used in main (article) space it places the article in [[:Category:Articles to be expanded]] or in a dated category like [[:Category:Articles to be expanded from {{CURRENTMONTHNAME}} {{CURRENTYEAR}}]] if the date parameter "date={{CURRENTMONTHNAME}} {{CURRENTYEAR}}" is specified. It also places the article in [[:Category:All articles to be expanded]].

== Usage ==
*If the section is completely empty, use {{tl|Empty section}} instead.
*For the references section, use one of {{tl|No footnotes}} and {{tl|More footnotes}} instead.

== See also ==
* {{tl|Expand section}}
* {{tl|Expand further}}
* {{tl|Expand list}}
* {{tl|Empty section}}
