Parameters

Infobox television season parameters and basic guidelines
Field name Type Description Values
season_name required Season name. The series title will be automatically italicised. Only necessary if the complete season name cannot be created with the follow five parameters. plain text
show_name required Show name. The name of the show. plain text
pre_season_qualifier required Pre-season qualifer. For cases where disambiguation (typically of the show's premiering year) before the season is required (e.g. the pre-season qualifier for Dallas (1978 TV series) (season 7) is (1978 TV series)). plain text
season_qualifier required Season qualifer. For cases where disambiguation (typically of the show's origin country) before the season type is required (e.g. the season qualifier for The Apprentice (U.S. season 2) is U.S.). plain text
season_type required Season type. To determine the usage of the word "season" for American-based shows, or "series" for shows using British-English. plain text
season_number required Season number. The Xth season of this particular show. This number is also used to generate links for the previous and next seasons, if applicable. number
bgcolour optional Six-digit hex code used to colour header rows. Must include a hash symbol (#) before the code. e.g. #81a6e3. The contrast between background and foreground colors, if used, must meet the guidelines at WP:COLOR. hex code
image A suitable image. The image does not need to be wikilinked and should exclude "File:" e.g. Example.png and underscores should not replace spaces. Typically the image will be DVD cover art, although this is not mandated. Free content should be used where available. raw image name excluding "File:"
image_upright Use of this parameter is preferred to using "image_size", as it allows autosizing of images according to user preferences. By default the infobox image scales to upright=1, which is 220 px if the default thumbnail size has not been changed at Special:Preferences) The size should not be set to a value that would result in an image width greater than 300px. raw number
image_size Width of the image in pixels, excluding "px". If not specified the image width defaults to the value explained above in "image_upright". The size should not be set greater than 300px. raw number

num_episodes The number of episodes released in the season. This parameter should only be incremented when new episodes air. An inline citation is required if the total number of episodes produced is greater than the number aired, such as in the case of a show being cancelled. number

Controlling line-breaking in embedded bulletless lists

Template {{nbsp}} may be used with {{wbr}} and {{nowrap}} to control line-breaking in bulletless lists embedded in the infobox (e.g. cast and other credits lists), to prevent wrapped long entries from being confused with multiple entries. See Template:Wbr/doc#Controlling line-breaking in infoboxes for details.

Calculating "image_upright"

The following table provides an approximate conversion from a "px" value, to an "image_upright" value based on a default thumbnail setting of 220px (size is default multiplied by upright value then rounded to nearest 10).

"px" setting image_upright=
170 0.75
180 0.8
190 0.85
200 0.9
210 0.95
220 1
230 1.05
240 1.1
250 1.15
260 1.2
270 1.23
280 1.25
290 1.3
300 1.35
