Template:Infobox person is one of three templates used to automatically add conversions of height measurements displayed by Template:Infobox person and other infoboxes with a |height= parameter.

  1. Template:Infobox person/height changes text for units of height to the abbreviations "m", "cm", "ft", or "in", then passes the string to:
  2. Template:Infobox person/height/locate which replaces any instances of   with a space, and determines the positions of "m", "cm", "ft", or "in" within that string, all of which is passed to:
  3. Template:Infobox person/height/switch which does the conversion

Exceptions[change source]

Does not replace numbers in hard-coded conversions (examples intentionally show incorrect conversions), but does replace units with abbreviations "m", "cm", "ft", or "in":

  • {{Template:Infobox person/height|5 feet 2 inches (1.00 metres)}} → 5 ft 2 in (1.00 m)
  • {{Template:Infobox person/height|157 centimetres (5 feet 5 inches)}} → 157 cm (5 ft 5 in)

Does not replace numeric output of conversion templates such as {{convert}} or {{height}}, but does replace units with abbreviations "m", "cm", "ft", or "in":

  • {{Template:Infobox person/height|{{convert|5|ft|2|in|abbr=off}}}} → 5 ft 2 in (1.57 m)
    • compare to: {{convert|5|ft|2|in|abbr=off}} → 5 feet 2 inches (1.57 metres)
  • {{Template:Infobox person/height|{{convert|1.57|m|abbr=off}}}} → 1.57 m (5 ft 2 in)
    • compare to: {{convert|1.57|m|abbr=off}} → 1.57 metres (5 feet 2 inches)
  • {{Template:Infobox person/height|{{height|ft=5|in=2|abbr=no}}}} → 5 ft 2 in (1.57 m)
    • compare to: {{height|ft=5|in=2|abbr=no}} → 5 feet 2 inches (1.57 metres)
  • {{Template:Infobox person/height|{{height|m=1.57|abbr=no}}}} → 1.57 m (5 ft 2 in)
    • compare to: {{height|m=1.57|abbr=no}} → 1.57 metres (5 feet 2 inches)

Conversion templates where units are not replaced (examples have precision different than usual):

  • {{Template:Infobox person/height/locate|{{convert|5|ft|2|in|m|3|abbr=off}}}} → 5 feet 2 inches (1.575 metres)
    • compare to: {{convert|5|ft|2|in|m|3|abbr=off}} → 5 feet 2 inches (1.575 metres)
  • {{Template:Infobox person/height/locate|{{convert|1.57|m|ftin|1|abbr=off}}}} → 1.57 metres (5 feet 1.8 inches)
    • compare to: {{convert|1.57|m|ftin|1|abbr=off}} → 1.57 metres (5 feet 1.8 inches)
  • {{Template:Infobox person/height/locate|{{height|ft=5|in=2|precision=3|abbr=no}}}} → 5 feet 2 inches (1.575 metres)
    • compare to: {{height|ft=5|in=2|precision=3|abbr=no}} → 5 feet 2 inches (1.575 metres)
  • {{Template:Infobox person/height/locate|{{height|m=1.57|frac=4|abbr=no}}}} → 1.57 metres (5 feet 1 34 inches)
    • compare to: {{height|m=1.57|frac=4|abbr=no}} → 1.57 metres (5 feet 1 34 inches)
