  • inactive – if set to "y", "yes", or "1", the 'Inactive WikiProject' notice banner is included on the page; otherwise, leave field blank.
  • semi-active – if set to "y", "yes", or "1", the 'Semi-active WikiProject' notice banner is included on the page; otherwise, leave field blank.
  • name – the name of the project, without the 'Wikipedia:WikiProject' prefix. (e.g., Tulips)
  • bodystyle – any valid CSS markup that is applied to the infobox table as a whole. (you may need to use !important to override default values specified elsewhere)
  • image – an image for the project, given in the form of 'example.jpg'. (i.e., do not specify the size, caption, position, etc., and do not prefix it with 'File:' or 'Image:')
    • imagesize – sets the width of the project image, given in 'px'. When not specified, the default is 180px. (e.g., 150px)
    • caption – a descriptive sentence that describes the image. (e.g., This WikiProject is about project topic.)
  • shortcuts – if the project has a primary shortcut, list it here in the form [[WP:Shortcut]].
    • shortcuts2 – Secondary shortcuts may be given here. If there are more than two shortcuts, enter as a comma separated list.
  • category – the name of the root category of the articles within the scope of the WikiProject, preferably without the 'Category:' prefix. (e.g., WikiProject Tulips)
    • category2 – the name of a second root category if the project uses more than one, preferably without the 'Category:' prefix. (e.g., Tulips)
  • portal – the name of an appropriate portal for the project, without the 'Portal:' prefix. (e.g., Tulips)

  • notice – the name of the project banner template for the project, given without the 'Template:' prefix or any {{ }} syntax. (e.g., WikiProject Tulips)
    • notice-extended – an alternative to 'notice' (overrides the standard 'notice' message) that you can use to provide more details, template parameters, etc. (e.g., {{WikiProject International relations|un=yes}})
  • userbox – you may enter up to three project userboxes, (using userbox, userbox2, and userbox3) and/or an optional userboxnote:
    • If the userbox is located in the template namespace (i.e., the userbox page starts with 'Template:' in front of the name), then just enter the name of the template, without the 'Template:' prefix:
    • If the userbox is located in any other namespace (i.e., 'User:', 'Wikipedia:', etc.), enter the full name of the userbox page, including the prefix:
      • Example #2: |userbox = User:Example/Userboxes/WikiProject Tulips member would be entered as-is
      • Example #3: |userbox2 = Wikipedia:Example/UBX would be entered as-is
    • userboxnote – a free-form comment, such as a link to more userboxes or brief instructions; if there are more than three userboxes to choose from, you could use only this parameter and link to a gallery of userboxes.

  • has-goals – if set to "n", "no", or "0", indicates that the project exists solely to help organise child projects and co-ordinate items of interest common to all sub-projects, and does not engage in any other activity; "y", "yes", or "1" indicates the project intends to pursue other goals besides supporting child projects; anything else will be treated as a free-form comment, such as a link to more information.
  • assessment – the link to the project's assessment page, without the 'Wikipedia:' prefix. (e.g., WikiProject Tulips/Assessment)
  • footnotes – any additional free-form notes about the project.
  • csb – if set to "yes", tags project as relevant for Wikipedia:WikiProject Countering systemic bias (CSB)
