From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

{{cbignore}} is a flag that informs participating bots (such as Cyberbot) not to fix a dead link. It is typically useful when a bot adds an incorrect archive link, it is reverted by a live editor, the bot adds it back again etc. This template tells the bot to leave it alone. In certain cases {{cbignore}} might also be added by other bots, see the talk page (of the English Wikipedia {{cbignore}} template) for more information.


For references[edit]

  • <ref>{{cite web|...}}{{dead link}}{{cbignore}}</ref>
  • <ref>{{cite web|...}}{{cbignore}}{{dead link}}</ref>
  • <ref>{{cite web|...}}{{dead link}}</ref>{{cbignore}}
  • <ref>{{cite web|...}}</ref>{{cbignore}}{{dead link}}

For Citation templates not inside ref tags[edit]

Place this template directly after the affected citation template or relevant archive or dead-link templates.

  • {{cite web|...}}{{dead link}}{{cbignore}}
  • {{cite web|...}}{{cbignore}}
