Wikipedia:WikiProject Infoboxes/Subtemplates

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Many infoboxes use subtemplates.

Metadata / formatting subtemplates

Most infoboxes use subtemplates chiefly to emit metadata as part of embedded microformats (see Wikipedia:WikiProject Microformats), or for formatting purposes. Here are some subtemplates which you may use:

Coordinates
{{Coord}}
Event dates
{{Start date}}
{{End date}}
List formatting
{{Plainlist}}
{{Flatlist}}
URLs
{{URL}}

Please see each subtemplate's documentation for usage guidelines. See the relevant infobox's documentation for further examples.

Embedding one infobox into another

One infobox template can be embedded into another using the |child= parameter or the |embed= parameter. This feature can be used to create a modular infobox, or to create better-defined logical sections. For more information on how to do this, please see Template:Infobox#Embedding.
