It contains usage information, categories and other content that is not part of the original template page.


This template can be invoked as follows:

Standard template

Template with image

Transcludes the entire template as shown here, with image and caption.

{{Paranormal |state=collapsed |image=EXAMPLE.jpg |caption=This is the caption}}

It is highly recommended that you use the "collapsed" versions for article stubs. Collapsed versions also work well in "See also" sections.


Wikipedia's policy on verifiability states:

"The burden of evidence lies with the editor who adds or restores material. Material that is challenged or likely to be challenged needs a reliable source, which should be cited in the article."

The main article and set of related citations for this template's content is Paranormal. Questions about the reliability or accuracy of this template's concepts should be addressed on that article's talk page. Questions about this template's organization should be first addressed on this template's talk page.

Since this template is transcluded by dozens of Wikipedia pages and its content is the result of an on-going communal effort, the best way to ensure the long-term acceptance of any proposed change is to first gain consensus for the proposed change on the aforementioned talk pages prior to making the actual change here.


Example collapsed with image

This example effectively looks like a small magazine cover.


|state   = collapsed
|image   = Medium-Eva-Carriere-1912.jpg
|caption = The [[Mediumship|medium]] Eva Carrière photographed in 1912 with a light appearing between her hands.
