For all fields, no wikilinks are automatically incorporated into the infobox. Therefore, if you want anything to be linked to something else, they must be added when including the template.

Required fields[change source]

  • title – A title for the attack; most likely this will match the article title, but you can change it to something slightly different if the title is a little over-descriptive
  • location – The physical place, perhaps a specific airplane or building (multiple targets are allowed, of course), including the city, where the attack occurred; including the country is preferred for cities; including the province or state is discouraged unless necessary or well-known:
Will be fetched from Wikidata (location (P276), if available) if not locally set
  • date – The date of the attack; use {{start date}} to allow for users' date preferences to go into effect and include the date in the hCalendar microformat (see below; use {{end date}} for multi-day events). Will be fetched from Wikidata (point in time (P585), if available) if not locally set

Optional fields[change source]

  • native_name – the native name of the event, if different
  • native_name_langISO 639-2 code for the native name e.g. 'fr' for French. For an event with more than one native name, use {{lang|XX|...}} for each name with {{plainlist}} or {{unbulleted list}} separating the names.
  • partof – a violent campaign containing the civilian attack event described in the article.
  • image – An image associated with the event; do not precede the image name with Image: or File:. Will be fetched from Wikidata (image (P18), if available) if not locally set
  • image_size – Size of main image in pixels (Do not include "px"). Default 250. Example format — image_size = 150. For most cases, image_upright should be used instead, per WP:IMGSIZE.
  • image_upright – Scales the image thumbnail from its default size by the given factor. Values less than 1 scale the image down (0.9 = 90%) and values greater than 1 scale the image up (1.15 = 115%).
  • alt – Alt text for the image, for visually impaired readers. See WP:ALT. This should be specified if image is specified.
  • caption – A caption for the image. Will be fetched from Wikidata (media legend (P2096), if available) if not locally set
  • map – A {{location map}} or map image
  • map_caption – A caption for the map
  • target – The target and/or purpose of the attack
  • coordinates – geographical coordinates. Use {{coord}} with |display=inline,title. Will be fetched from Wikidata (coordinate location (P625), if available) if not locally set
  • time – The time of the attack, or of multiple attacks if they all occurred at the same time (do not use this along with time-begin and time-end)
  • time-begin and time-end – The start and end times, respectively, if a series of attacks (do not use this along with time)
  • timezone – The timezone of the location of the attack(s); UTC+X, UTC−X, or UTC (i.e. offset from UTC) preferred
  • type – The type of attack (e.g. suicide bombing, mass shooting, etc.)

Coordinates[change source]

For coordinates, use {{coord}} with display=inline,title. Please do not be overly precise.

Embedding other templates[change source]

The module= parameter can be used for embedding other templates into this infobox (see Wikipedia:Infobox modules):

{{Infobox civilian attack
| name = 
| module = {{Infobox ABC
 | embed = yes <!-- or 'child=yes' or 'subbox=yes' -->

Microformats[change source]

The HTML markup produced by this template includes an hCalendar microformat, which makes the event details parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue article across Wikipedia, or via a browser tool operated by a person, to (for example) add the subject to a calendar or diary application. Within the hCalendar is 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. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please see the microformat project.

Dates will only be included if you use {{Start date}} or {{End date}} (use the former for single dates, but do not use any of these if the date is before 1583 CE). {{End date}} requires that a time be specified, but display of this time may be suppressed by adding |nodate=yes to the end.

To include a URL, use {{URL}}.

hCalendar uses HTML classes including:

  • attendee
  • dtend
  • dtstart
  • location
  • summary
  • url
  • vevent

Geo is produced by calling {{coord}}, and uses HTML classes:

  • geo
  • latitude
  • longitude

Please do not rename or remove these classes nor collapse nested elements which use them.
Also, when giving coordinates, please don't be overly precise.
