Parameters[change source]

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 describe why the person is notable. 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
name Common name of person (defaults to article name if left blank; provide birth_name (below) if different from 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 use Image:Replace this image male.svg, Image:Replace this image female.svg or other placeholder images; the proposal to use such placeholders has been rejected by the community.
Size to display image: 200px (set width), or 200x300px (max width & max height). This defaults to 225px if empty or omitted.
