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 Template:WPBiography on the talkpage. If no image is available yet, do not use an image placeholder.
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 WP: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 {{lang}} in |native_name= instead.
birth_name Name at birth; only use if different from name.
birth_date Date of birth: {{birth date and age}} (if living) or {{birth date}} (if dead). See Template:Birth date and age/doc for details on usage. If only a year of birth is known, or age as of a certain date, consider using {{birth year and age}} or {{birth based on age as of 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). Do not use a flag template.
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: {{disappeared date and age}} (if birth date is known) or {{disappeared date}} (if birth date unknown).
disappeared_place (For missing people) Place of disappearance: city, administrative region, sovereign state. Do not use a flag template.
disappeared_status (For missing people) Current status for the person, e.g. if the person is still regarded as missing (using {{missing for}} 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: {{death date and age}} (if birth date is known) or {{death date}} (if birth date unknown). See Template:Death date/doc for details on usage. If exact dates are unknown, consider using {{death year and age}}.
death_place Place of death: city, administrative region, sovereign state. Note: Do not use a flag template. 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.
body_discovered Place where the body was discovered (if different from place of death). Do not use a flag template.
resting_place Place of burial, ash-scattering, etc. Do not use a flag template.
resting_place_coordinates Coordinates for place of burial, ash-scattering etc. Use {{coord}} 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 birth place. Do not use a flag template.
nationality 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 use a flag template.
other_names Other notable names for the person, if different from name and birth_name.
ethnicity Ethnicity. 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 use a flag template.
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 most often simply consist of the linked name of the last-attended higher education institution. It is usually not relevant to included 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.
employer Employer(s), if relevant.
organization Non-employing organization(s), if relevant.
agent The subject's agent (individual and/or agency), if relevant.
known_for
(known)

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 Template:Infobox sportsperson 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 Template:Infobox sportsperson 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.

criminal_charge
criminal_penalty

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). Separate entries using {{Plainlist}} or {{Unbulleted list}}. For deceased persons still married at time of death, close the date range with death year.
partner(s) For unmarried life partners (of any gender or sexual preference), not business partners. Use the format Name (1950–present) for current partner and Name (1970–1999) for former partner(s).
children Number of children (e.g. three or 3), or list of names if notable, in which case, separate entries using {{Plainlist}} or {{Unbulleted list}}. For privacy reasons, consider omitting the names of children of living persons, unless the children are independently notable.
parents Names of parents, if notable. Separate entries using {{Plainlist}} or {{Unbulleted list}}.
relatives
(relations)
Names of siblings or other relatives, if notable. Include the relationship in parentheses after the name (sister, uncle, etc). Separate entries using {{Plainlist}} or {{Unbulleted list}}.

signature_size Default is 150px. If necessary, a signature can be resized manually as per the "image_size" parameter.
website Official website only. Unofficial websites should be placed under ==External links== in the body of the article. Use {{URL}} as in {{URL|Example.com}}. Do not include the www. part unless the server requires it. Use camel case capitalization to make multiword domain names easier to read.
footnotes Notes about any of the infobox data.
box_width The infobox width, such as: box_width=220px (default: 22em). A space character between the number and the unit of measurement breaks the parameter. This parameter should not normally need to be set.
