Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

Rather than create a new template for each type of person, utilize labels in this template. To modify this template:

  1. Open the template containing the desired label ("View source").
  2. Find the desired label. The label will be a group of label, text, template parameters and other information. Template:Infobox contains the full details.
  3. Insert the label information into this template. Do not duplicate the label numbers, but they should be in increasing numeric order. Unneeded label entries may be removed.
  4. Update this documentation page with the changes.
  5. Click here to Purge the template cache.

Usage

The infobox may be added by pasting the template as shown below into an article and then filling in the desired fields. Any parameters left blank or omitted will not be displayed.

Blank template with basic parameters

{{Infobox person
| name          = <!-- include middle initial, if not specified in birth_name -->
| image         = <!-- just the filename, without the File: or Image: prefix or enclosing [[brackets]] -->

| caption       = 
| birth_name    = <!-- only use if different from name -->
| birth_date    = <!-- {{Birth date and age|YYYY|MM|DD}} for living people - supply only the year unless the exact date is already widely published, as per WP:DOB. For people that have died, use {{Birth date|YYYY|MM|DD}}. -->
