Description[change source]

This template should be used for the parameter |based on= of templates such as {{Infobox film}}, {{Infobox television}}, {{Infobox opera}} and {{Infobox musical composition}}. It creates an automatic line break between the original work title and its creator(s). Multiple writers can be specified with an arbitrary number of additional parameteres. Do not use <br /> to separate writers per MOS:UBLIST. It was historically used for separating writers before support for multiple parameters was added. See Manual of Style (titles) for the proper way of displaying the title of the source material. Do not use this field where the source material is ambiguous, i.e. in cases of films that are not clearly or officially based on one original work.

This template may also be used for some other purposes. The aliases {{Work by author}} and {{Theme song}} may be used.
