Usage

{{Disputed inline|Talk page section|date=August 2018}}

To link to a centralized discussion on a page other than the article's talk page, use the |talk= parameter (a.k.a. |talkpage=, |discuss=, |discussion=) to give the location:

{{Disputed inline|talk=Talk:Topic#Talk page section|date=August 2018}}

The parameter |for= can be used to give a short reason that displays in the tag (do not use this for editorializing[when defined as?] or any other editor may refactor such a comment out); the comment added here will be preceded by "for:" and the entire comment put in a round-bracketed parenthetical:

{{Disputed inline|Talk page section|for=conflict with sources cited above|date=August 2018}}

{{Disputed inline}} should not be used without also raising the issue on the talk page.

Articles with disputed statements

This inline template helps highlight a disputed particular statement or alleged fact, in contrast to the {{Disputed}} and {{Disputed section}} templates which mark a whole article or section as disputed. This is particularly helpful when there are reliable sources supporting two or more different claims. {{Disputed inline}} should not be used without also raising the issue on the talk page. When used on an article page, the word "disputed" links to Wikipedia:Disputed statement, and the article is placed in Category:Accuracy disputes or one of its dated sub-categories. This template is a more strongly worded version of {{Dubious}}, which indicates a potential dispute, most often a question about reliable sourcing for the statement/fact at issue; {{Disputed inline}} indicates that at least one editor believes there is no question that the statement has a verifiability problem.

Other pages

If this tag is used outside the article namespace, it will not be categorized in an article cleanup category, and the word "disputed" links to Wikipedia:Consensus. It can be used to indicate an unresolved dispute and a talk page topic about the dispute, e.g. an issue at a guideline or WikiProject page.

For pages other than articles, use {{Under discussion inline}}, which categorizes differently.
