General parameters

  • attention – set |attention=yes if the article needs immediate attention from experienced editors. Use only if another parameter does not cover the need for attention; this should be used sparingly.
  • botanist – set |botanist=yes if the article is about a botanist.
  • class – valid values are listed in the custom class mask. See the project's quality scale for details.
  • importance – valid values are: top, high, mid, low, na (case-insensitive). See the project's importance scale for details.
  • listas – This parameter, which is the equivalent of the DEFAULTSORT sortkey that should be placed on all biographical articles, is a sortkey for the article talk page (e.g. for Carl Linnaeus, use |listas=Linnaeus, Carl so that the talk page will show up in the L's and not the C's of the various assessment and administrative categories). This is important because it is one source used by those who set DEFAULTSORT on the article; consider also setting the DEFAULTSORT for the article when setting this parameter. For more information about this, please see Wikipedia:Categorization of people#Ordering names in a category.
    It is not required if another WikiProject template on the same page has its own |listas= set, since it not only affects categories used by the banner in which it is set, but it also affects the sortkey of all other banners and templates.
  • needs-cultivar-infobox – set |needs-cultivar-infobox=yes to request that a cultivar infobox be included in this article to improve its quality.
  • image-requested – set |image-requested=yes to request that an image or images be included in this article to improve its quality.
  • needs-taxobox – set |needs-taxobox=yes to request that a taxobox be included in this article to improve its quality.
  • small – set |small=yes to display a small version of the template aligned along the right side of the page (as opposed to at the top). This parameter does not work as expected if the banner template is enclosed in {{WikiProject banner shell}} or any of its redirects.
  • category – set |category=no if, and only if, a banner is being used for demonstration or testing purposes, to prevent unnecessary or undesirable categorization. Otherwise, omit this parameter.


  • The parameters |needs-image= and |needs-photo= are recognised as aliases for |image-requested=. If more than one is present, |needs-image= has precedence over |needs-photo=, and |image-requested= has precedence over both of the others: parameters with lower precedence are ignored.
