Usage

Paste the code for the relevant office and then add the personal data to the bottom. There are no required fields and some fields will not appear when others are in use. For instructions on how to implement multiple terms, see this page. For advice on alt text, see Wikipedia:Alternative text for images.

The parameter |order= is used in conjunction with |office= to state that the officeholder is the nth holder of the office, for example "2nd President of Mauritius". If |order= is not specified, the value of |office= can be wikilinked in the usual way, for example, "[[Ministry of Defence (Singapore)|Minister for Defence]]". However, if |order= is specified together with |office=, the value of |office= is automatically linked to a Wikipedia article of the same name, whether such an article exists or not. Wikilinking cannot be used to redirect the link elsewhere, but a piped link can be created like this: "Ministry of Defence (Singapore){{!}}Minister for Defence" (note that the double square brackets have been omitted).

When both a start and an end term are given, you can instead specify the complete term using the parameters |term=, |terms2=, etc. This can be helpful for complicated terms that cannot be given as simple starting or ending dates, or if you prefer something other than the default term separator (an en dash, with spaces around it if the start or end is not a simple integer date).

Where a politician was redistricted into a new district, you can use |prior_term= to indicate which district(s) he was in before. This saves space in the infobox by not generating a completely new office each time redistricting happens. If you do this, it is recommended that you list the person who preceded the subject when the subject first took office and the person who succeeded the subject when the subject last left office. Where the use of "same district number" is used for determining "predecessor" and "successor" in any office, but where the area is so altered as to make such a "predecessor" or "successor" of little or no biographical value, the word "redistricted" should be used rather than using names of officeholders whose connection is accidental by virtue of district number, but unrelated to any election contests between officeholders.

Please do not re-purpose any fields to add decorative images, icons or flags. Template:Infobox viceroy styles or the like can be used for this. WP:INFOBOXFLAG applies here.

Embedding other templates

The module parameters (module, module2, ... module5) may used to embed other templates into this infobox (see Wikipedia:Infobox modules).

{{Infobox officeholder
 | name = 
 | <!-- etc. -->
 | module = 
  {{Infobox football biography | embed = yes
   | <!-- etc. -->
  }}
}}

Embedding within a different infobox

Many officeholders are known for more than just their appointments (e.g., Clint Eastwood), and hence it may be desirable to merge this infobox with another one, like {{Infobox person}}. By adding "|embed=yes" to the first line of the infobox code, one can embed this infobox into another, creating the illusion of one continuous infobox. Though the process is a little complicated, it is possible to insert this infobox into most if not all other infoboxes. For {{Infobox person}}, this infobox is passed as a "module" using the |module= syntax.

{{Infobox person
 | name          = John Infobox
 | image         = Example.jpg
 | caption       = John Infobox in 2005
 | birth_name    = John Officeholder Person Infobox
 | birth_date    = {{Birth date|1950|5|5}}
 | birth_place   = Template City
 | death_date    = {{Death date and age|2010|10|10|1950|5|5}}
 | occupation    = Actor
 | years_active  = 1970–1990
 | module        = 
  {{Infobox officeholder | embed = yes
   | office        = Mayor of Wikipedia
   | term_start    = 1994
   | term_end      = 1998
 }}
 | website       = {{URL|example.com}}
}}

Microformat

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

Date-of-birth ("bday") information will only be included in the microformat if {{Birth date}}, {{Birth date and age}}, or {{Birth-date}} are used in the infobox. (but do not use these if the date is before 1583 CE).

To include a URL, use {{Url}}

hCard uses HTML classes including:

  • adr
  • agent
  • bday
  • birthplace
  • category
  • country-name
  • deathdate
  • deathplace
  • extended-address
  • family-name
  • fn (required)
  • given-name
  • honorific-prefix
  • honorific-suffix
  • label
  • locality
  • n
  • nickname
  • note
  • org
  • role
  • url
  • vcard

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