Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template adds pages to Category:Userspace drafts or a dated subcategory thereof.

If the page is in article mainspace it shows nothing, and in all other namespaces it adds the category Category:Misplaced userspace drafts.

This template is added automatically to userspace drafts created via the Wikipedia:Article wizard 2.0 (the discussion page is at WT:WIZ2).

Note: when used in User, User talk or Wikipedia talk namespaces, this template automatically includes __NOINDEX__.

If the page this template is on has not been edited it over a year, it will appear in Category:Stale userspace drafts.


To use, add {{Userspace draft|date=April 2020}} to the very top of a draft article in userspace (not its talk page) to produce

This template should only be used in userspace. To denote articles in the mainspace that are undergoing major edits, use {{Inuse}}.

Minimalist output

{{Userspace draft|help=no|date=April 2020}} will produce a minimalistic output

Optional parameters

  • |page= allows you to specify a custom page name for where the page may be located after the draft is complete. If it isn't specified, it will default to the subpage title.
  • |newuser=no will suppress the display of "instructional wording", but will keep the links to the tools.
  • |article= replace the wording "a Wikipedia article" with something else, e.g. "an essay" or "a wikiproject", to reflect the nature of a non-article draft. Using this option will also suppress features relating to the Article Creation Wizard and the submission of article drafts for review.
