Purpose[edit]

This template creates an inline hCard microformat for a person, with their date of birth (and optionally age, if living), using either {{birth date}} or {{birth date and age}}.

For inline hCards for a building, organisation or place, see {{Hcard-geo}}).

Use[edit]

The template has five parameters:

  1. name = the person's name (becomes hCard's "fn" class).
  2. template type = "birth date" or "birth date and age" (emits data formatted in hCard's bday class; do not use the latter for dead people)
  3. birth year = four digits
  4. birth month = two digits
  5. birth day = two digits

Copyable code[edit]

Overwrite place-holder text; remove " and age" if subject is dead:

{{hcard-bday|PersonName|birth date and age|YYYY|MM|DD}}
