Style guide

Try to always consider that an infobox exists to support an article and provide a quick synopsis of important facts. This becomes vital when considering that the amount of space available within an infobox is significantly less than that available outside of it. Adding all seventy three nicknames that a player might have is highly informative, but will defeat the purpose of the infobox.

As per the manual of style entry on linking, years should not be linked as they do not provide much benefit to the user.

In order to keep the infobox from ballooning laterally, it is wise to keep date formats as compact as possible. Highly accurate dates are more useful in the article itself. Typically editors will use the 2005–2006 incarnation but when very pressed for space, 05–06 may be useful. Utilising the &ndash; character instead of a hyphen will help prevent line breaks creeping into the season.

If the start or end date of a players time at a club is unknown they should be aligned with the other years.

Microformat

The HTML markup produced by this template includes an hCard microformat, which makes the person's details parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue articles across Wikipedia or via a browser tool operated by a reader, to (for example) add the subject to an address book or database. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please see the microformat project.

Sub-templates

Date-of-birth ("bday") information will only be included in the microformat if {{birth date}}, or {{birth date and age}} are used in the infobox. (Do not use these if the date is before 1583).

To include a URL, use {{URL}}.

Please do not remove instances of these sub-templates.

Classes

hCard uses HTML classes including:

  • adr
  • agent
  • bday
  • birthplace
  • category
  • country-name
  • deathdate
  • deathplace
  • extended-address
  • family-name
  • fn (required)
  • given-name
  • honorific-prefix
  • honorific-suffix
  • label
  • locality
  • n
  • nickname
  • note
  • org
  • role
  • url
  • vcard

Please do not rename or remove these classes; nor collapse nested elements which use them.
