If you find that some of the arrows don't link to the intended sections, see Modifying section links below.

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.

Producer[edit]

The name of the title's producer in plain text only. Logos and other graphics are to be avoided in this field in accordance with WP:ACCESS and WP:FAIR. Use an internal link or piped internal link to the main article about the producer. For help with internal links, see the Editing FAQ. This field is mandatory.

Image[edit]

An image of the act, sufficiently clear for display at 200 pixels' width. Set to only the image name, e.g. Example.png, not Image:Example.png or [[Image: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).

Alt[edit]

Alt text for the image, as per WP:ALT. This is for describing the image to people who cannot see the image, and typically should not be the same as the caption.

Caption[edit]

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

Types of releases[edit]

There are individual fields for a variety of release types. (studio albums, internet albums, live albums, compilations, video albums, music videos, tribute albums, EPs, singles, b-sides, soundtracks karaoke, holiday albums and box sets. In each field place the number of each type that the producer has released. Use only numeric values in these fields. For other types of releases, see "Advanced usage" below.

Advanced usage[edit]

Image size[edit]

The image is set to be 250px wide by default. If this needs to be adjusted, use the |Image size= parameter, which should be less than 250px. To set the image to its automatic size, set it to auto.

Modifying section links[edit]

If the discography doesn't use the titles as used in this template, you may modify the destination links (which appear as the diagonal arrow in the template) by using the following parameters to link from the infobox to the appropriate section. Unless your section is named exactly as used in this infobox, it will not map to the correct part of the page or will only link to the top of the discography page.

Optional sections[edit]

As not all music producers are the same, some will need to have different sections linked in their discography, such as a collaboration section, unreleased songs or others. In order to list these options, there are five parameters instead of just two. The first two parameters, |Option = and |Option name = are mandatory if you wish to use this portion of the template. The standard color is a medium gray (see the Customised link parameter table below); however, the example on the right employs the color selection parameter, |Option color = converting the color to "turquoise". The |Option link = parameter is optional, and when unused, it uses the same information from |Option name =. However, with long titles, it may not be preferable to use the full title (as in the example, it is "Side projects", but links to "Side projects and collaborations"). The |Option s-color = parameter is optional, and when used, designates the complimenting secondary-color which the template displays in the numeric field. When unused this field will render the |Option color = if one has been designated; if not, the field will display the corresponding secondary-color shown in the table below.

You may add up to six (6) optional fields. The basic option only requires the input as shown below. To use a second option simply add "1" in front of ALL of the parameters for the second time, "2" in front of the third, and so on.

Customised link parameter table
Infobox option parameter Parameter purpose Required?
 | Option         =  The number of instances of the option shown in the discography Mandatory
 | Option name    =  The name or type of the Option, such as "Collaborations" Mandatory
 | Option link    =  The link to the list of instances (must match a heading on page) Optional
 | Option color   =  The bold background color displayed in the row portion showing the album category and section link Optional
 | Option s-color =  The secondary background color displayed in the row portion showing quantities Optional
