LocationEdit

If using a large, graphical template produces odd layout problems, like the excessive white space shown on the right of this screenshot, then switch to a different sister template.

☒N Do not place this template in the main body of the article.

☒N Do not place this template in a section containing columns.

This template is normally placed at the top of the WP:Other websites section. Please do not create an otherwise-empty ==Other websites== section for this template. Instead, consider using {{Wikinews-inline}}, or placing this template at the top of the last section on the page (usually a citation-related section). See Wikipedia:Wikimedia sister projects for further recommendations about the best choice of template for various situations.
