{{Infobox person}} may be used to summarize information about a particular person, usually at the top of an article. It is an alternative to more specific templates such as those listed at WikiProject Biography/Infoboxes and within the people infobox templates category.


The infobox may be added by pasting the template as shown below into an article and then filling in the desired fields. Any parameters left blank or omitted will not be displayed.

Do not use all these parameters for any one person. The list is long to cover a wide range of people. Only use those parameters that convey essential or notable information about the subject. Any parameters left blank or omitted will not be displayed. If a data field has more than one parameter name which can be used, the preferred name is listed first in bold print.

Parameter Explanation
honorific_prefix To appear on the line above the person's name
name Common name of person (defaults to article name if left blank; provide birth_name (below) if different from name).
honorific_suffix To appear on the line below the person's name
image Image name: abc.jpg, xpz.png, 123.gif, etc. If an image is desired but not available, one may add "yes" to the "needs-photo" section of the Template:WPBiography on the talkpage. Do not add File:Replace this image male.svg, File:Replace this image female.svg or other placeholder images; a discussion for the use such placeholders resulted in no consensus for the mandatory removal of the images on existing pages, however it is suggested that they not be added to new articles.
Size to display image: 200px (set width), x300px (set height), or 200x300px (max width & max height). This defaults to frameless (default is 220px, but logged in users can change this by clicking on "my preferences" and adjusting thumbnail size) if empty or omitted. This parameter should not normally need to be set.
alt Alt text for image, for visually impaired readers. See WP:ALT.
caption Caption for image, if needed. Try to include date of photo and the photographer.
birth_name Name at birth; only use if different from name.
birth_date Date of birth: {{birth date and age}} (if living) or {{birth date}} (if dead). See Template:Birth date and age/doc for details on usage. If only a year of birth is known, or age as of a certain date, consider using {{birth year and age}} or {{birth based on age as of date}}.
birth_place Place of birth: city, administrative region, sovereign state.
disappeared_date (For missing people) Date of disappearance: {{disappeared date and age}} (if birth date is known) or {{disappeared date}} (if birth date unknown).
disappeared_place (For missing people) Place of disappearance: city, administrative region, sovereign state.
disappeared_status (For missing people) Current status for the person, e.g. if the person is still regarded as missing (using {{missing for}} to calculate the time since disappearance), or if the person has been declared dead in absentia, with a date for such a ruling.
death_date Date of death: {{death date and age}} (if birth date is known) or {{death date}} (if birth date unknown). See Template:Death date/doc for details on usage. If exact dates are unknown, consider using {{death year and age}}.
death_place Place of death: city, administrative region, sovereign state.
death_cause Cause of death.
body_discovered Place where the body was discovered (if different from place of death).
resting_place Place of burial, ash-scattering, etc.
resting_place_coordinates Coordinates for place of burial, ash-scattering etc. Use {{coord}} template.
monuments Significant monuments erected or buildings etc. named in honour of the subject. If many, link to an appropriate section of the article instead.
residence Location(s) where the person notably resides/resided, if different from birth place.
nationality Nationality. May be used instead of citizenship (below) or vice versa in cases where any confusion could result. Should only be used with citizenship when they somehow differ.

education Education.
alma_mater Alma mater

influences People who were influences of the subject. Clear and notable examples only. Can also be used to indicate groups, schools of thought, etc. (but beware supposition).
influenced People who were influenced by the subject. Clear and notable examples only. Can also be used to indicate groups, schools of thought, etc. (but beware grandiose claims and supposition).
home_town The place where the person was raised and matured, if different from birth place and residence.
salary Annual salary or compensation, if relevant.
net_worth Current estimated net worth, if relevant.
height If person was notable for their height, or if height is relevant. Consider using {{convinfobox}}.
weight If person was notable for their weight, or if weight is relevant. If used, this should also include the date. Consider using {{convinfobox}}.
television Television programmes presented by or closely associated with the subject.
title Multiple uses:

See also "awards" parameter, below, for awarded honors that are not really titles. A single award should not use both parameters.

awards Notable awards. If many, link to an appropriate section of the article instead. See also "title" parameter, above, for awarded titles. A single award should not use both parameters.
signature An image of the person's signature.
signature_alt Alt text for the signature image. For example, for File:Thomas Jefferson Signature.svg, the alt text might be |signature_alt="Th: Jefferson", spelling out the signature exactly as it appears in the image.

Used for embedding other infoboxes into this one.
website Official website only. Unofficial websites should be placed under ==External links== in the body of the article. Use {{URL}} as {{URL|www.example.com}}.
footnotes Notes about any of the infobox data.
