Fields[edit]

When using the template, it is not necessary to delete any fields that are not being used. Most fields are optional; if no data is supplied, the row will simply not appear once the page is saved.

Author[edit]

The name of the group or author in plain text only. Use an internal link or piped internal link to the main article about the author. For help with internal links, see the Editing FAQ. This field is mandatory.

Image[edit]

An image of the author, sufficiently clear for display at a width of 200 pixels. Enter the image name, e.g., Example.png, not File:Example.png or [[File:Example.png|200px|abc]]. Images used should ideally be free images; that is, not subject to copyright restrictions. If no free image is available it may be possible to use a non-free image under a claim of fair use, provided the image meets Wikipedia's non-free content criteria (for more information see WP:NFCC and WP:NFC).

Caption[edit]

Caption for the image to be displayed. Do not link years in the caption e.g. do not link [[2007]].

Alt[edit]

Alt text is used to give a description of what constitutes the image for those who cannot display or see images. See WP:ALT for more information on alternative text for images.

Types of releases[edit]

There are individual fields for the various types of releases (books, novels, articles, stories, collections, pamphlets, poems, comics, plays, scripts, music, journals, letters, translations, editorbook, editorperiodical, editornewspaper, editorreference). In each field place the number of each type that the author has released. Use only numeric values in these fields. For other types of releases, see Advanced usage below.

  • Books are non-fiction works - memoirs and biographies, journalism, most political writing, etc.
  • Novels are fictional book-length works and novellas
  • Articles can include op-eds, book reviews, or essays; these are all non-fiction. These might be published in periodicals, academic journals, or possibly on the Internet, but generally not as stand-alone publications.
  • Stories are short fictional pieces that are published in periodicals and anthologies.
  • Collections is intended for works that compile several other pieces by the author, such as short story collections or a compilation of poetry.
  • Pamphlets are non-fiction works that are longer than essays but shorter than books. They are published as individual pieces, often in limited print runs or for book clubs.
  • Poems this field is intended for listing individual poems and verse.
  • Comic this parameter includes all kinds of comic books - including monthly series as well as trade paperbacks.
  • Plays are stage plays and drama intended for theater
  • Scripts can be teleplays written for film, television, or radio serials.
  • Music includes all musical compositions of the author. If an author is also a prolific musician, you may want to include a brief section on his musical endeavors and then link to a discography.
  • Interviews are public discussions that are then transcribed for publication.
  • Journals are private diaries that are generally published posthumously.
  • Letters can include individual correspondence, but it is more likely that such writing will be collected posthumously.
  • Translations are works that the author has translated, not translations of his works.
  • Editorbook is intended for books that the author has edited - these will often include a prefatory or introductory note by the author as well
  • Editorperiodical is for any regular publications that the author edited, including magazines or academic journals
  • Editornewspaper is a similar field for newspapers
  • Editorreference is intended for any reference works the author edited, including dictionaries, atlases, and encyclopedias

Advanced usage[edit]

Image size[edit]

The image is set to be 200px wide by default. If this needs to be adjusted, use |ImageSize=size, where size should be less than 200px. To set the image to its automatic size, use |ImageSize=auto.

Optional parameters[edit]

Please use this function sparingly.

As not all authors are the same, some will have different kinds of publications such as collaborations or unreleased works. To list them, use {{para|OptionName" and |Option=, followed by |1OptionName= and |1Option=, and so on up to |5OptionName= and |5Option=, as in the example below.
