Usage

{{fix
|link = <Page which text should link to, without brackets>
|text = <Text to be displayed for the link>
|pre-text = <Optional text to print before the linked text>
|post-text = <Optional text to print after the linked text>
|class = <Class to set text to> (default = "noprint Inline-Template"; neither should be removed,
but additional classes can be added, e.g. "noprint Inline-Template FooBarBazQuux")
|title = <Tooltip text to display when mouse is hovered over link>
|special = <Optional replacement for text, link, title, pre-text, and post-text - 
allowing user to define a non-standard format>
|date = <Optional date parameter to be displayed at end of 'title' and/or in cat-date>
|cat = <Category to include page in>
|cat-date = <Category to include page in - with optional date parameter in the category name>}}

Purpose

Most inline notices use virtually identical formats. This template is designed to provide a single standardized format which can accommodate the different text, links, and categories of individual templates.

For example, [needs cleanup], can be produced with:

{{fix
|link=Forum:Index
|pre-text=needs 
|text=cleanup
|title=The material in the vicinity of this tag may require cleanup
|date={{{date|}}}
|cat=[[Category:Articles in need of improvement]]}}

This methodology allows new inline templates to be created by just filling in the parameters above. This also allows consistent formatting, features, and syntax across the range of templates.
