The purpose of this template should be obvious: tag pages whose content is no longer valid and should not be used any further. Pages tagged with this will be included in the Category:Obsolete and will display the contents of the page in a grayed-out color as a reminder for the whole (just in case there are links to subsections that fail to make the warning visible. It also removes the [Edit] links in the subsections to avoid further editions (although it does not protect the page).

Related templates:

  • Template:Dated - for pages with some stale information—but that in general just needs an update.
  • Template:Deprecated - for pages that are thoroughly deprecated and should not be used or relied on (a bit bite-y)
  • Template:Obsolete - for pages that are out-of-date that have a better page

The template takes an extra (optional) parameter that can basically be any text and will be displayed right after the warning sign.

{{Outdated |some text pointing to [[The OLPC Wiki|alternative page]] or just text.}}
