Infobox person/Wikidata
Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This version of {{Infobox person}} retrieves various parameter values from Wikidata if enabled ("opt-in"), but only in the absence of a locally supplied value. The template calls Module:Wikidata and Module:WikidataIB.

It allows editors at the article level to blacklist various fields so that they do not display. This makes a positive statement that those fields are unsuitable for inclusion in that article's infobox.

Usage[edit]

Basic[edit]

Just use:

{{infobox person/Wikidata | fetchwikidata=ALL}}

and you should get a Wikidata-filled infobox! (Providing the article is linked to a Wikidata entry containing relevant information!)

Use:

{{infobox person/Wikidata | fetchwikidata=ALL}}

to only fetch information that is sourced on Wikidata. This is an important safeguard for BLPs. Leaving out the parameter has the same effect, but adding the parameter explicitly will help other editors. The subject's current age (or age at death) will be calculated automatically provided that the dates are sourced and full (i.e. 12 January 1958 not 1958).

Elsewhere[edit]

{{infobox person/Wikidata | fetchwikidata=ALL | onlysourced=no}}

This can be used outside of BLPs if the editor wishes to see all of the information, sourced and unsourced, available on Wikidata. Generally, though, it is better to set |onlysourced=yes as it will help to reduce the effects here of unsourced vandalism on Wikidata.

General example[edit]

{{infobox person/Wikidata
 | suppressfields=occupation children
 | dateformat = dmy
...
}}

This will prevent the infobox from displaying the fields for occupation or children.

Specific example[edit]

In Ludwig van Beethoven (Q255)

{{infobox person/Wikidata
 | suppressfields=birth_date
 | fetchwikidata=ALL
 | dateformat = dmy
}}

This fetches information on place of birth, baptism, death, citizenship, etc. - but not date of birth as that is not known.
