Template:Infobox deity/Wikidata

From Seeds of the Word
Infobox deity/Wikidata
Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This version of {{Infobox deity}} retrieves various parameter values from Wikidata if enabled ("opt-in"), but only in the absence of a locally supplied value. The template calls Module:Wikidata and Module:WikidataIB.

It allows editors at the article level to blacklist various fields so that they do not display. This makes a positive statement that those fields are unsuitable for inclusion in that article's infobox.

Usage

Basic

Infobox deity/Wikidata

Just use:

{{infobox deity/Wikidata | fetchwikidata=ALL}}

and you should get a Wikidata-filled infobox! (Providing the article is linked to a Wikidata entry containing relevant information!). The |onlysourced= is set to "yes" by default.

Fetching un-sourced info

Infobox deity/Wikidata

Just use:

{{infobox deity/Wikidata | fetchwikidata=ALL | onlysourced=no}}

This can be used outside of BLPs if the editor wishes to see all of the information, sourced and unsourced, available on Wikidata. Generally, though, it is better not to use |onlysourced= as it will help to reduce the effects here of unsourced vandalism on Wikidata.

Using custom values

In addition to above, you can also add custom values, or use custom values instead of wikidata values.

Infobox deity/Wikidata
AffiliationAvatar of Vishnu
{{Infobox deity/Wikidata
 | fetchwikidata=ALL
 | affiliation = Avatar of Vishnu
}}
