This template should be used on articles describing a dotcom and its website (for example: YouTube, eBay, Facebook). If the two entities do not share the same name and/or have their own article, use {{Infobox company}} and {{Infobox website}} instead on the appropriate article (example: Google (company) and Google search (website), Yahoo! (company) and Yahoo! Search (website)).

Usage[change | change source]

Copy a blank version to use. All parameters must be lower case. Some parameter use a space while others use an underscore as shown. All fields are optional except the location of the company's headquarters. To specify the location specify either |location_city= and |location_country= or |location=.

Microformat[change | change source]

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

Sub-templates[change | change source]

  • If the organisation has an "established", "founded", "opened" or similar date, use {{Start date}} (unless the date is before 1583 CE).
  • If the organisation has a URL, use {{URL}}.
  • If the organisation has a "coordinates" field, use {{Coord}} to include a Geo microformat, which additionally makes the coordinates (latitude & longitude) parsable, so that they can be, say, looked up on a map, or downloaded to a GPS unit.

Please do not remove instances of these sub-templates.

Classes[change | change source]

hCard uses HTML classes including:

  • adr
  • agent
  • category
  • country-name
  • extended-address
  • fn
  • geo
  • label
  • latitude
  • locality
  • longitude
  • nickname
  • note
  • org
  • region
  • street-address
  • url
  • vcard

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

Use {{Birth date}} for the "foundation" date, but ONLY if a full YYYY-MM-DD date is available.
