A stub is an article or section on OrthodoxWiki which is underdeveloped. It often consists of only one paragraph, a rough outline, or incomplete information.

Finding and marking a stub

If you find a stub on OrthodoxWiki, you can either fix it by editing it to include more material or at least calling it to others' attention, marking it as a stub by including the {{stub}} tag in the article or section body and including [[Category:Stubs]] at the bottom of the article text.

When you put the {{stub}} tag in the article and save it, you'll see the following message included:


This article or section is a stub (i.e., in need of additional material). You can help OrthodoxWiki by expanding it.


Fixing a stub

If you fix a stub (and thus bring it into the realm of non-stubness), be sure to remove the {{stub}} tag and also delete the [[Category:Stubs]] from the bottom of the article text.

Links-only articles

An article which consists only of a set of links may qualify as a stub, but it more likely simply needs to be included in the appropriate category by including [[Category:Links]] at the bottom of the article text.
