Parameters

Do not use all these parameters for any one person. The list is long to cover a wide range of people. Only use those parameters that convey essential or notable information about the subject, and ensure that that information is sourced in the article or (if present only in the infobox) in the infobox itself.

Any parameters left blank or omitted will not be displayed. Many parameters have alternative names, implemented for compatibility with other templates (especially to aid merging). The preferred names are shown in the table below.

Parameter Explanation
pre-nominals To appear on the line above the person's name. This is for things like |pre-nominals=Sir – honorifics of serious significance that are attached to the name in formal address, such as knighthoods and titles of nobility; do not use it for routine things like "Dr." or "Ms."
name Common name of person (defaults to article name if left blank; provide |birth_name= (below) if different from |name=). If middle initials are specified (or implied) by the lead of the article, and are not specified separately in the |birth_name= parameter, include them here. Do not put honorifics or alternative names in this parameter. There are separate parameters for these things, covered below.
post-nominals To appear on the line below the person's name. This is for things like |post-nominals=[[Officer of the Order of the British Empire|OBE]] – honorifics of serious significance that are attached to the name in formal address, such as national orders and non-honorary doctorates; do not use it for routine things like "BA". It is permissible but not required to use the {{post-nominals}} template inside this parameter; doing so requires {{post-nominals|size=100|...}}.
image Image name: abc.jpg, xpz.png, 123.gif, etc., without the File: or Image: prefix. If an image is desired but not available, one may add yes to the |needs-photo= parameter of the {{WikiProject Biography}} template on the talk page. If no image is available yet, do not use an image placeholder.
image_upright Scales the image thumbnail from its default size by the given factor. Values less than 1 scale the image down (0.9 = 90%) and values greater than 1 scale the image up (1.15 = 115%).
alt Descriptive alt text for the image, for visually impaired readers. One word (such as photograph) is rarely sufficient. Do not copy-paste the value of |caption= (below) into this parameter. Example of the difference: "Willie Nelson at a concert in Dallas, 1989" is good as |caption= value; "Nelson in western-wear with an acoustic guitar, on stage in a daytime show with band in background" is an |alt= description. If nothing meaningful can be said that isn't already in the caption, use the stock text |alt=refer to caption.
caption Caption for image, if needed. Try to include the date of photo, some context, and the photographer if known (check the File: or Commons page for the image).
native_name The person's name in their own language, if different.
native_name_lang ISO 639-1 code, e.g., "fr" for French. If more than one, use {{lang}} around each name in |native_name= instead.
pronunciation Details of how to pronounce the individual's native name.
birth_name Name at birth; only use if different from |name=.
birth_date Date of birth: Use {{birth date and age}} (if living) or {{birth date}} (if dead). See template's page for details on usage. If only a year of birth is known, or age as of a certain date, consider using {{birth year and age}} or {{birth based on age as of date}}. For living people supply only the year unless the exact date is already widely published. Treat such cases as if only the year is known, so use {{birth year and age}} or a similar option. The templates mentioned in this paragraph emit metadata indicating the date is in the Gregorian calendar; if the date is in the Julian calendar, do not use these templates, just write the date.
Script error: No such module "anchor".birth_place Place of birth: city, administrative region, country.
  • Use the name of the birthplace at the time of birth, e.g.: Saigon (prior to 1976) or Ho Chi Minh City (post-1976).
  • Do not use a flag template, coat of arms, or other icon.
  • Omit unnecessary or redundant details. For example, it is not necessary to state: New York City, New York, United States when New York City, US conveys essentially the same information more concisely.
  • Countries should generally not be linked.
  • For modern subjects, the country should generally be a sovereign state; for United Kingdom locations, the constituent countries of the UK are sometimes used instead, when more appropriate in the context.
  • For historical subjects, use the place name most appropriate for the context and our readership. What the place may correspond to on a modern map is a matter for an article's main text.
  • For subsequent places (of death, etc.) it is not necessary to repeat jurisdictional details or links for the same place name.
baptised Date of baptism: Only for use when birth date is not known (e.g., for Ludwig van Beethoven). Will not display if a birth date is entered. Do not use subtemplates. Parameter baptized can be used for articles that use American english spelling.
disappeared_date (For missing people) Date of disappearance: Use {{disappeared date and age}} (if birth date is known) or {{disappeared date}} (if birth date unknown).
disappeared_place (For missing people) Place of disappearance: city, administrative region, country.  (See |birth_place=, above, for instructions on how to use this parameter, including: no flag templates, inappropriate linking, redundancy, anachronisms, "country" definitions, etc.)
disappeared_status (For missing people) Current status for the person, e.g., if the person is still regarded as missing (using {{missing for}} to calculate the time since disappearance), or if the person has been declared dead Lua error in package.lua at line 80: module 'Module:Language/name/data' not found., with a date for such a ruling.
death_date Date of death: Use {{death date and age}} (if birth date is known) or {{death date}} (if birth date unknown). See template's page for details on usage. If exact dates are unknown, consider using {{death year and age}}. The templates mentioned in this paragraph emit metadata indicating the date is in the Gregorian calendar; if the date is in the Julian calendar, do not use these templates, just write the date.
death_place Place of death: city, administrative region, country.  (See |birth_place=, above, for instructions on how to use this parameter, including: no flag templates, inappropriate linking, redundancy, anachronisms, "country" definitions, etc.)
death_cause Cause of death. Should be clearly defined and sourced, and should only be included when the cause of death has significance for the subject's notability, e.g. James Dean, John Lennon. It should not be filled in for unremarkable deaths such as those from old age or routine illness, e.g. Bruce Forsyth, Eduard Khil.
body_discovered Place where the body was discovered (if different from place of death). city, administrative region, country.  (See |birth_place=, above, for instructions on how to use this parameter, including: no flag templates, inappropriate linking, redundancy, anachronisms, "country" definitions, etc.)
burial_place Place of burial city, administrative region, country.  (See |birth_place=, above, for instructions on how to use this parameter, including: no flag templates, inappropriate linking, redundancy, anachronisms, "country" definitions, etc. See |resting_place= for non-burials.)
burial_coordinates Coordinates for place of burial, to accompany |burial_place=. Use {{coord}} template.
resting_place Location of columbarium, ash-scattering, etc. If no location, leave blank. city, administrative region, country.  (See |birth_place=, above, for instructions on how to use this parameter, including: no flag templates, inappropriate linking, redundancy, anachronisms, "country" definitions, etc.)
resting_place_coordinates Coordinates for location of columbarium, ash-scattering etc. Use {{coord}} template.
monuments Significant monuments erected, buildings named, etc., in honour of the subject. If many, link to an appropriate section of the article instead.
residence Location(s) where the person notably resides/resided, if different from birthplace. city, administrative region, country.  (See |birth_place=, above, for instructions on how to use this parameter, including: no flag templates, inappropriate linking, redundancy, anachronisms, "country" definitions, etc.)
nationality May be used instead of |citizenship= (below) or vice versa in cases where any confusion could result. Should only be used with |citizenship= when they differ. (See |birth_place=, above, for instructions on how to use this parameter, including: no flag templates, inappropriate linking, anachronisms, "country" definitions, etc.)
other_names Other notable names for the person, if different from |name= and |birth_name=. This can include stage names, maiden/married names, nicknames, criminal aliases, etc.
citizenship Country of legal citizenship, if different from nationality. Rarely needed. See usage notes for |nationality=, above. Should only be used if citizenship differs from the value in |nationality= and cannot be inferred from the birthplace. Note that many countries do not automatically grant citizenship to people born within their borders. (See |birth_place=, above, for instructions on how to use this parameter, including: no flag templates, inappropriate linking, anachronisms, "country" definitions, etc.)
education Education, e.g., degree, institution and graduation year, if relevant. If very little information is available or relevant, the |alma_mater= parameter may be more appropriate.
alma_mater Alma mater. This parameter is a more concise alternative to (not addition to) |education=, and will often consist of the linked name of the last-attended institution of higher education (not secondary schools). It is usually not relevant to include either parameter for non-graduates, but article talk page consensus may conclude otherwise, as perhaps at Bill Gates.
occupation Occupation(s) as given in the lead. Use list markup for three or more entries, e.g. with {{flatlist}}. Please observe sentence case and capitalise only the first letter of the first item; e.g.:
  • Musician
  • singer-songwriter
  • actor
years_active Date range in years during which the subject was active in their principal occupation(s) and/or other activity for which they are notable. Use the format 1950–2000, or 1970–present if still active. Date ranges always use an en dash, not hyphen. If no dates of birth and/or death are known for the subject, only a floruit date range, as is common with ancient subjects, this parameter can be used for it. If approximate (circa) dates are known for either or both, put them in the |birth_date= and |death_date= parameters. Helpful templates: {{floruit}}, {{circa}}.
era Era (e.g., Medieval) in which the person lived; less specific than |years_active=. Should not be used if dates are available.
employer Employer(s), if relevant.
organization Non-employing organization(s), if relevant.
agent The subject's agent (individual and/or agency), discouraged in most cases, specifically when promotional, and requiring a reliable source.
known_for A brief description of why the person is notable.
  • notable_works;
      alternatives:
  • credits
  • label_name
  • works
Title(s) of notable work(s) (publications, compositions, sculptures, films, etc.) by the subject, if any. Produces the label Notable work. May be overridden by |credits=, which produces Notable credit(s); or by |works=, which produces Works; or by |label_name=, which produces Label(s).
  • The |notable_works=, |credits=, and |label_name= parameters are intended to be (at most) short inline lists.
  • The |label_name= variant is used for one or more record labels with which a performer is associated, or a fashion label in which a designer has been heavily involved or for which they are well known. Remember that this parameter is an alternative to the others mentioned here and is not used along with them.
  • The |works= variant is intended to link to a specific list article for a larger body of work (not all of which may be individually notable).
style The style of the subject's works, if applicable. This parameter is not for styles of address or office; see |pre-nominals=.
home_town The place where the person was raised and matured, if different from birthplace and residence. city, administrative region, country.  (See |birth_place=, above, for instructions on how to use this parameter, including: no flag templates, inappropriate linking, redundancy, anachronisms, "country" definitions, etc.)
salary Annual salary or compensation, if relevant. Link the first occurrence to the currency article, e.g.: [[Pound sterling|₤]]86,000
net_worth Current estimated net worth, if relevant. Please be sure to support with a citation from a reliable source, in the article body.
height If person was notable for their height, or if height is relevant. If used, this should also include the year of the measurement if the person had not reached full adulthood when this stat was published. See documentation of this parameter at Template:Infobox sportsperson for more information.
weight If person was notable for their weight, or if weight is relevant. If used, this should also include the year of the measurement. See documentation of this parameter at Template:Infobox sportsperson for more information.
television Television programmes presented by or closely associated with the subject. For multiple entries, use an inline list.
title Multiple uses:

For multiple entries, use an inline list.

Use the |awards= parameter, below, for awarded honors that are not really titles. A single award should not use both parameters.

office May be used as an alternative to |title= when the label is better displayed as Office (e.g. public office or appointments). Using this parameter will override |title=.
term Years the person held the |title= or |office= listed above. Helpful template: {{reign}} (also used for civil offices).
predecessor Person who previously held the |title= or |office= listed above.
successor Person who subsequently held the |title= or |office= listed above.
party If relevant. Field labelled Political party.
movement If relevant. Can be social, political (non-party), artistic, philosophical, literary, cultural, etc.
opponents Notable relevant opponents (e.g., for major political office).
boards For board of directors membership(s), if relevant. Field labeled Board member of.
  • criminal_charge
  • criminal_penalty
  • criminal_status
For convicted criminals only. Please be certain to support these parameters with citations from reliable sources, in the article body.
spouse Name of spouse(s), followed by years of marriage. Use the format Name (married 1950–present) for a current spouse, and Name (married 1970–99) for former spouse(s). Use article title (if linking) or common name. For multiple entries, use an inline list. For deceased persons still married at time of death, close the date range with death year.
partner If particularly relevant, or if the partner is notable; "partner" here means unmarried life partners (of any gender or sexual preference), not business partner. Use the format Name (1950–present) for current partner and Name (1970–1999) for former partner(s). Do not use truncated years (as in "1970–99").
children Only if independently notable themselves or particularly relevant. Number of children (e.g., three), or list of names if notable. For multiple entries, use an inline list. For privacy reasons, consider omitting the names of living children, unless notable.
parents Names of parents; include only if they are independently notable or particularly relevant. For multiple entries, use an inline list. If subject has only one notable mother and/or only one notable father, |mother= and |father= parameters may be used instead. These parameter may be used for biological, adoptive, foster, or step-parents.
mother Name of mother; include only if subject has one mother who is independently notable or particularly relevant. Displays Parent(s) as label, and is overridden by the |parents= parameter.
father Name of father; include only if subject has one father who is independently notable or particularly relevant. Displays Parent(s) as label, and is overridden by the |parents= parameter.
relatives Names of siblings or other relatives; include only if independently notable or particularly relevant. Include the relationship in parentheses after the name (sister, uncle, etc.). For multiple entries, use an inline list.
callsign Amateur radio call sign, if relevant.
awards Notable awards. If many, link to an appropriate section of the article instead. Use |title= parameter, above, for awarded titles; A single award should not use both parameters.
website Official website only. Unofficial websites should be placed under ==External links== in the body of the article. Use {{URL}} as in {{URL|Example.com}}. Do not display the www. part unless the site requires it.

Used for embedding other infoboxes into this one. Example:
{{Infobox person
| name                = Ian Watkins
...
| module =
    {{Infobox musical artist
    | embed = yes
    | background = solo_singer <!-- mandatory field -->
    ...
    }} <!-- end of Infobox musical artist -->
...
}} <!-- end of Infobox person -->

For more detailed information, see Wikipedia:WikiProject Infoboxes/embed.

signature An image of the person's signature. Please use image name: abc.jpg, xpz.png, 123.gif, etc., without the File: or Image: prefix
signature_size Default is 150px. If necessary, a signature can be resized manually as per the |image_size= parameter.
signature_alt Alt text for the signature image. For example, for File:Thomas Jefferson Signature.svg, the alt text might be |signature_alt= Th: Jefferson, spelling out the signature exactly as it appears in the image.
footnotes Textual notes about any of the infobox data. This is not for reference citations. If an infobox parameter's value needs a citation, cite inline at the end of the value. Citations will appear in the article's references section along with the other citations in the article.
image_size Deprecated. Size to display image: 200px (set width), x300px (set height), or 200x300px (max width & max height). If empty or omitted, this defaults to frameless (default is 220px, but logged-in users can change this by clicking on "my preferences" and adjusting thumbnail size). Use of this parameter is discouraged. Use image_upright instead. Do not use "×" or capital "X"

Inline lists

Parameters with multiple values should be formatted with inline-list templates.

Horizontal ones include {{hlist}} or {{flatlist}}. In horizontal style, only the first item is capitalized (aside from proper names).

This style is best for short items, and few of them. An entry of two or three very short items that will all fit on one line can be done simply with commas: |parameter_name=Foo, bar, baz (use semicolons if any items contain their own commas).

Horizontal list example with {{hlist|Item one|item two|item three}}:

  • Item one
  • item two
  • item three

Vertical templates are {{plainlist}} and {{unbulleted list}} (vertical), use unbulleted, non-indented lists for clean display in infoboxes. Entries may be all sentence case, or all lowercase (aside from proper names) after the first.

This style is best for long items, and longer lists. For long lists of information that may not be of immediate interest but retained for reference, the {{collapsible list}} template can be used; this is not a universally accessible option, so should not be used for key information.

Do not use <br /> markup to create fake lists, as in: Item one<br />item two<br />item three.

Vertical list example:, using {{unbulleted list|Item one|item two|item three}}:

  • Item one
  • item two
  • item three

Microformat

The HTML markup produced by this template includes an hCard microformat, which makes the person's details parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue articles across Wikipedia or via a browser tool operated by a reader, to (for example) add the subject to an address book or database. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please see the microformat project.

Sub-templates

Date-of-birth ("bday") information will only be included in the microformat if {{birth date}}, or {{birth date and age}} are used in the infobox. (Do not use these if the date is before 1583). Be cautious about using these if the person is still living, per WP:DOB.

To include a URL, use {{URL}}.

Please do not remove instances of these sub-templates.

  • adr
