== Parameters ==
== 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. If a data field has more than one parameter name which can be used, the preferred name is listed first in '''bold''' print.

|-
|-
| '''honorific_prefix'''
| '''<code>honorific_prefix</code>'''
| To appear on the line above the person's name
| To appear on the line above the person's name. This is for things like <code><nowiki>|honorific_prefix=Sir</nowiki></code> – 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 "{{!mxt|[[Dr.]]}}" or "{{!mxt|[[Ms.]]}}"
|-
|-
| '''name'''
| '''<code>name</code>'''
| 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''' field, include them here.
| Common name of person (defaults to article name if left blank; provide {{para|birth_name}} (below) if different from {{para|name}}). If middle initials are specified (or implied) by the lead of the article, and are not specified separately in the {{para|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.
|-
|-
| '''honorific_suffix'''
| '''<code>honorific_suffix</code>'''
| To appear on the line below the person's name
| To appear on the line below the person's name. This is for things like <code><nowiki>|honorific_suffix=[[Officer of the Order of the British Empire|OBE]]</nowiki></code> – 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 "{{!mxt|[[Bachelor of arts|BA]]}}". It is permissible but not required to use the {{tlx|post-nominals}} template inside this parameter; doing so requires {{tlx|post-nominals|size{{=}}100%|...}}.
|-
|-
| '''image'''
| '''<code>image</code>'''
| Image name: abc.jpg, xpz.png, 123.gif, etc. If an image is desired but not available, one may add "yes" to the "needs-photo" section of the [[:Template:WPBiography]] on the talkpage. If no image is available yet, [[Wikipedia:Centralized discussion/Image placeholders|do not use an image placeholder]].
| Image name: {{kbd|abc.jpg}}, {{kbd|xpz.png}}, {{kbd|123.gif}}, etc., without the {{samp|File:}} or {{samp|Image:}} prefix. If an image is desired but not available, one may add {{kbd|yes}} to the {{para|needs-photo}} parameter of the {{tlx|WikiProject Biography}} template on the talk page. If no image is available yet, [[Wikipedia:Centralized discussion/Image placeholders|do not use an image placeholder]].
|-
|-
| '''image_size'''<br /> (''imagesize'')
| '''<code>image_upright</code>'''
| Size to display image: ''200px'' (set width), ''x300px'' (set height), or ''200x300px'' (max width & max height). This defaults to ''frameless'' (default is 220px, but logged in users can change this by clicking on "my preferences" and adjusting thumbnail size) if empty or omitted. This parameter should not normally need to be set.
| 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'''
| '''<code>landscape</code>'''
| Alt text for image, for visually impaired readers. One word (such as "photograph") is rarely sufficient. See [[WP:ALT]].
| Set to <code>yes</code> when using wide, short images. The image height (rather than width) will be limited to 200 pixels.  
|-
|-
| '''caption'''
| '''<code>alt</code>'''
| Caption for image, if needed. Try to include date of photo and the photographer.
| Descriptive [[Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Accessibility/Alternative text for images|<code>alt</code> text for the image]], for visually impaired readers. One word (such as {{kbd|photograph}}) is rarely sufficient. Do not copy-paste the value of {{para|caption}} (below) into this parameter. Example of the difference: "Willie Nelson at a concert in Dallas, 1989" is good as {{para|caption}} value; "Nelson in western-wear with an acoustic guitar, on stage in a daytime show with band in background" is an {{para|alt}} description. If nothing meaningful can be said that isn't already in the caption, use the [[Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Accessibility/Alternative text for images#Captions and nearby text|stock text]] {{para|alt|refer to caption}}.
|-
|-
| '''native_name'''
| '''<code>caption</code>'''
| Caption for image, if needed. Try to include the date of photo, some context (check the <code>File:</code> or [[Wikimedia Commons|Commons]] page for the image). Image credit should generally not be included per [[MOS:CREDITS]].
|-
| '''<code>native_name</code>'''
| The person's name in their own language, if different.
| The person's name in their own language, if different.
|-
|-
| '''native_name_lang'''
| '''<code>native_name_lang</code>'''
| [[ISO 639-1]] code e.g. "fr" for French. If more than one, use {{tl|lang}} in {{para|native_name}} instead.
| [[ISO 639-1]] code, e.g., "{{kbd|fr}}" for French. If more than one, use {{tlx|lang}} around each name in {{para|native_name}} instead.
|-
| '''<code>pronunciation</code>'''
| Details of how to pronounce the individual's native name. <!--copied from TemplateData description, if changed please update there also-->
|-
| '''<code>birth_name</code>'''
| Name at birth; only use if different from {{para|name}}.
|-
| '''<code>birth_date</code>'''
| Date of birth: Use {{tlx|birth date and age}} (if living) or {{tlx|birth date}} (if dead). {{crossref|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 {{tlx|birth year and age}} or {{tlx|birth based on age as of date}}. For living people [[Wikipedia:Biographies of living persons#Privacy of personal information and using primary sources|supply only the year unless the exact date is already widely published]]. Treat such cases as if only the year is known, so use {{tlx|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.
|-
|-
| '''birth_name'''
| {{anchor|birth_place}}'''<code>birth_place</code>'''
| Name at birth; only use if different from '''name'''.
| Place of birth: {{kbd|{{var|city}}, {{var|administrative region}}, {{var|country}}}}.
* Use the name of the birthplace at the time of birth, e.g.: {{kbd|Saigon}} (prior to 1976) or {{kbd|Ho Chi Minh City}} (post-1976).
* [[Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Icons#Do not use flags to indicate locations of birth, residence, or death|Do not use a flag template]], coat of arms, or other icon.
* [[Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Infoboxes#Purpose|Omit unnecessary or redundant details]]. For example, it is not necessary to state: {{!xt|{{kbd|New York City, [[New York (state)|New York]], United States}}}} when {{xt|{{kbd|New York City, U.S.}}}} conveys essentially the same information more concisely.
* Countries should [[Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Linking#What generally should not be linked|generally not be linked]].
* For modern subjects, the country should generally be a sovereign state; for United Kingdom locations, the constituent [[Countries of the United Kingdom|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.
|-
|-
| '''birth_date'''
| '''<code>baptised</code>'''
| Date of birth: {{tl|birth date and age}} (if living) or {{tl|birth date}} (if dead). See [[Template:Birth date and age/doc]] for details on usage. If only a year of birth is known, or age as of a certain date, consider using {{tl|birth year and age}} or {{tl|birth based on age as of date}}. For living people supply only the year unless the exact date is already widely published, as per [[WP:DOB]]. Treat such cases as if only the year is known, so use {{tl|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.
| Date of baptism: {{em|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 <code>baptized</code> can be used for articles that use American English spelling.
|-
|-
| '''birth_place'''
| '''<code>disappeared_date</code>'''
| Place of birth: city, administrative region, sovereign state. Use the name of the birthplace at the time of birth, e.g.: Saigon (prior to 1976), Ho Chi Minh City (post 1976). [[Wikipedia:Manual of Style (icons)#Do not use flags to indicate locations of birth, residence, or death|Do not use a flag template]].
| (For missing people) Date of disappearance: Use {{tlx|disappeared date and age}} (if birth date is known) or {{tlx|disappeared date}} (if birth date unknown).
|-
|-
| '''baptised'''
| '''<code>disappeared_place</code>'''
| Date of baptism: '''Only''' for use when birth date is not known (e.g. for [[Beethoven]]). Will not display if a birth date is entered. Do not use subtemplates.
| (For missing people) Place of disappearance: {{kbd|{{var|city}}, {{var|administrative region}}, {{var|country}}}}.&nbsp;<!--This space is needed for readability, due to quirk of these templated elements being in proximity.--> ({{crossref|See {{para|birth_place}}, [[#birth place|above]], for instructions on how to use this parameter}}, including: no flag templates, inappropriate linking, redundancy, anachronisms, "country" definitions, etc.)
|-
|-
| '''disappeared_date'''
| '''<code>disappeared_status</code>'''
| (For missing people) Date of disappearance: {{tl|disappeared date and age}} (if birth date is known) or {{tl|disappeared date}} (if birth date unknown).
| (For missing people) Current status for the person, e.g., if the person is still regarded as missing (using {{tlx|missing for}} to calculate the time since disappearance), or if the person has been [[Declared death in absentia|declared dead ''{{lang|la|in absentia}}'']], with a date for such a ruling.
|-
|-
| '''disappeared_place'''
| '''<code>death_date</code>'''
| (For missing people) Place of disappearance: city, administrative region, sovereign state. [[Wikipedia:Manual of Style (icons)#Do not use flags to indicate locations of birth, residence, or death|Do not use a flag template]].
| Date of death: Use {{tlx|death date and age}} (if birth date is known) or {{tlx|death date}} (if birth date unknown). {{crossref|See template's page for details on usage.}} If exact dates are unknown, consider using {{tlx|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.

== Examples ==
=== Inline lists ===
{{Main|WP:Manual of Style/Lists#Horizontal lists|WP:Manual of Style/Lists#Unbulleted lists}}
Parameters with multiple values should be formatted with inline-list templates.
 
'''Horizontal''' ones include {{tlx|hlist}} or {{tlx|flatlist}}. In [[Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Lists#Horizontal lists|horizontal style]], only the first item is capitalized (aside from [[Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Capital letters#Proper names|proper names]]).
 
This style is best for short items, and few of them. Mid-dots, commas or semicolons are available as separators (use semicolons or mid-dots if any items contain their own commas). For example:
* <code><nowiki>|parameter_name={{hlist |Foo |bar |baz}}</nowiki></code> → {{hlist |Foo |bar |baz}}
* <code><nowiki>|parameter_name={{cslist |Foo |bar |baz}}</nowiki></code> → {{cslist |Foo |bar |baz}}
* <code><nowiki>|parameter_name={{cslist |Foo, fee |bar, bor |baz, biz |semi=true}}</nowiki></code> → {{cslist |Foo, fee |bar, bor |baz, biz |semi=true}}
 
Horizontal list example with {{tlx|hlist|Item one|item two|item three}}: {{hlist|Item one|item two|item three}}
 
'''Vertical''' templates are {{tlx|plainlist}} and {{tlx|unbulleted list}} (vertical), use [[Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Lists#Unbulleted lists|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 {{tlx|collapsible list}} template can be used; this is not a universally accessible option, so should not be used for key information.
 
''[[Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Lists#Line breaks|Do not use {{tag|br|s}} markup]]'' to create fake lists, as in: <code>{{!mxt|<nowiki>Item one<br />item two<br />item three</nowiki>}}</code>.

Lua error in Module:Effective_protection_level at line 63: attempt to index field 'TitleBlacklist' (a nil value).

{{Infobox person}} may be used to summarize information about a particular person, usually at the top of an article.

Redirects and calls

At least 2 other templates call this one and many templates redirect here.

Modules

The following templates are suitable for use as a "module" in this one:

Usage

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 this 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
honorific_prefix To appear on the line above the person's name. This is for things like |honorific_prefix=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 "Template:!mxt" or "Template:!mxt"
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.
honorific_suffix To appear on the line below the person's name. This is for things like |honorific_suffix=[[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 "Template:!mxt". 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%).
landscape Set to yes when using wide, short images. The image height (rather than width) will be limited to 200 pixels.
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 (check the File: or Commons page for the image). Image credit should generally not be included per MOS:CREDITS.
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). Script error: No such module "Hatnote inline". 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.
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, U.S. 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.  (Script error: No such module "Hatnote inline"., 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 in absentia, 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). Script error: No such module "Hatnote inline". 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.  (Script error: No such module "Hatnote inline"., 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.  (Script error: No such module "Hatnote inline"., including: no flag templates, inappropriate linking, redundancy, anachronisms, "country" definitions, etc.)
burial_place Place of burial city, administrative region, country.  (Script error: No such module "Hatnote inline"., including: no flag templates, inappropriate linking, redundancy, anachronisms, "country" definitions, etc. Script error: No such module "Hatnote inline"..)
burial_coordinates Coordinates for place of burial, to accompany |burial_place=. Use {{coord}} template.

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.
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 per WP:INFONAT. (Script error: No such module "Hatnote inline"., 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.
siglum Siglum or monogram, a text shortcut (often formed from the initials of the name, with variations) used to sign work, if relevant.
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. (Script error: No such module "Hatnote inline"., 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 or organisation 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. Script error: No such module "Hatnote inline".
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. Script error: No such module "Hatnote inline".
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.
otherparty If relevant. Field labelled Other political affiliations.

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, do not include the end year.
partner If particularly relevant, or if the partner is notable; "partner" here means unmarried life partners in a domestic partnership (of any gender or sexual orientation), not business partner. Use the format Name (1950–present) for current partner and Name (1970–1999) for former partner(s).
children Typically the number of children (e.g., 3); only list names of independently notable or particularly relevant children. Names may be preceded by a number to show total children and avoid implying that named children are the only offspring. 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 parameters 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 and 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.

...
}} <!-- end of Infobox person -->

Script error: No such module "Hatnote inline".

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 "Template:!mxt" or capital "Template:!mxt"

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. Mid-dots, commas or semicolons are available as separators (use semicolons or mid-dots if any items contain their own commas). For example:

  • |parameter_name={{hlist |Foo |bar |baz}}
    • Foo
    • bar
    • baz
  • |parameter_name={{cslist |Foo |bar |baz}}
    • Foo
    • bar
    • baz
  • |parameter_name={{cslist |Foo, fee |bar, bor |baz, biz |semi=true}}
    • Foo, fee
    • bar, bor
    • baz, biz

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: Template:!mxt.

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.
