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.

Parameter Explanation
honorific_prefix To appear on the line above the person's name
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 field, include them here.
honorific_suffix To appear on the line below the person's name
image 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 on the talkpage. If no image is available yet, .
image_size
(imagesize)
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.
alt Alt text for image, for visually impaired readers. One word (such as "photograph") is rarely sufficient. See WorldHeritage:ALT.
caption Caption for image, if needed. Try to include date of photo and the photographer.
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 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: (if living) or (if dead). See for details on usage. If only a year of birth is known, or age as of a certain date, consider using or . For living people supply only the year unless the exact date is already widely published, as per WorldHeritage:DOB. Treat such cases as if only the year is known, so use 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, 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). .
baptised 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.
disappeared_date (For missing people) Date of disappearance: (if birth date is known) or (if birth date unknown).
disappeared_place (For missing people) Place of disappearance: city, administrative region, sovereign state. .
disappeared_status (For missing people) Current status for the person, e.g. if the person is still regarded as missing (using 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: (if birth date is known) or (if birth date unknown). See for details on usage. If exact dates are unknown, consider using . 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, sovereign state. Note: . Use the name of the deathplace at the time of death, e.g.: Saigon (prior to 1976), Ho Chi Minh City (post 1976)
death_cause Cause of death. Should be clearly defined and sourced.
body_discovered Place where the body was discovered (if different from place of death). .
resting_place Place of burial, ash-scattering, etc. .
resting_place_coordinates Coordinates for place of burial, ash-scattering etc. Use template.
burial_place Place of burial, alternative to |resting_place= which displays the label Burial place.
burial_coordinates Coordinates for place of burial, to accompany |burial_place=. Use 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. .
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 somehow differ. Do not link if a commonly known nationality. .
other_names Other notable names for the person, if different from name and birth_name.
ethnicity Ethnicity, if relevant. Please be sure to support with a citation from a reliable source, in the article body.
citizenship Country of legal citizenship, if different from nationality. Rarely needed. See usage notes for nationality above. Should only be used if citizenship cannot be inferred from the birthplace; note that many countries do not automatically grant citizenship to people born within their borders. Do not link if a commonly known country. .
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 |education=, and will often consist of the linked name of the last-attended higher education institution. It is usually not relevant to include either parameter for non-graduates, but article talk page consensus may conclude otherwise, as at Bill Gates.
occupation Occupation(s) as given in the lead. Please observe sentence case and capitalise only the first letter of the first item; e.g.
  • Musician
  • actor
  • singer-songwriter
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 (note the use of 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.
era Era in which the person lived and worked; less specific than |years_active=. e.g. "Medieval"
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
(known)
A brief description of why the person is notable.
notable_works Title(s) of notable work(s) (publications, compositions, sculptures, films, etc.) by the subject, if any; produces label "Notable work". May be overridden by |credits=, which produces label "Notable credit(s)"; or by |works=, which produces label "Works". "Credits" and "Notable work" are intended to be short in-line lists; "Works" is intended to link to a list article for a larger body of work, not all of which may be individually notable.
style The style in which the subject works, if applicable.
influences No longer supported.
influenced No longer supported.
home_town The place where the person was raised and matured, if different from birthplace and residence.
salary Annual salary or compensation, if relevant.
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 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 for more information.
television Television programmes presented by or closely associated with the subject.
title Multiple uses:

See also "awards" parameter, below, for awarded honors that are not really titles. A single award should not use both parameters.

term Years the person held the title listed above.
predecessor Person who previously held the title listed above.
successor Person who subsequently held the title listed above.
party If relevant. Field labelled Political party.
movement If relevant. Movement can be social, political (non-party), artistic, philosophical, literary, cultural, etc.

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(s) Name of spouse(s), followed by years of marriage. Use the format Name (married 1950–present) for a current spouse, and Name (married 1970–1999) for former spouse(s). Use article title (if linking) or common name. Separate entries using or . For deceased persons still married at time of death, close the date range with death year.
partner(s) 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).
children Only if independently notable themselves or particularly relevant. Number of children (e.g. three or 3), or list of names if notable, in which case, separate entries using or . For privacy reasons, consider omitting the names of children of living persons, unless notable.
parents Names of parents; include only if they are independently notable or particularly relevant. Separate entries using or .
