Template:Extra music sample/doc

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This template is for adding a music sample within {{Infobox song}} or {{Infobox single}}.

Usage[edit]

{{Extra music sample
| type           = 
| filename       = 
| title          = 
| description    = 
}}
  • type should be "song" for songs and "single" for singles (without the quotes).
  • filename is the name of the audio file.
  • title is the name of the song.
  • description should probably be left blank in this context; otherwise, provide a brief description specific to the sample such as the duration.
{{Extra music sample
| Type           = single
| Filename       = The_Beatles_-_Ticket_to_Ride.ogg
| Title          = "Ticket to Ride"
| Description    = 
}}

Note: This template must be wrapped in an infobox; it does not provide the outer table markup and relies on a table being open when used. See "Ticket to Ride" for an example.

Microformat[edit]

The HTML mark-up produced by this template includes an hAudio microformat that makes an audio recording's details readily parsable by computer programs. This aids tasks such as the cataloguing of articles and maintenance of databases. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please visit the Microformat WikiProject.

Subtemplates

Date-of-publication ("published") information will only be included in the microformat if {{start date}} (or, where appropriate, {{start date and age}}) is used in a parent infobox/template. Do not, however, use {{start date}} or {{start date and age}} if a date before 1583 CE is involved.

Use {{duration}} to specify the duration/length of a recording. For instance, if the recording's duration is 3 minutes 45 seconds, use {{duration|m=3|s=45}} (which appears as: 3:45). If needed, |h= may be included to specify a number of hours.

Please do not remove instances of these subtemplates.
