Template:Infobox person/Wikidata

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

This version of {{Infobox person}} retrieves various parameter values from Wikidata if enabled ("opt-in"). This will by default only fetch information that is sourced on Wikidata to a non-Wikipedia source, and only if a local value is not provided. 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

Georges Duhamel
Leo Tolstoy

Just use:

{{Infobox person/Wikidata | fetchwikidata=ALL}}

and you should get a Wikidata-filled infobox! (Providing the article is linked to a Wikidata entry containing relevant information!). This will by default only fetch information that is sourced on Wikidata. This is an important safeguard for BLPs. The subject's current age (or age at death) will be calculated automatically provided that the dates are sourced and full (i.e. 12 January 1958 not 1958).

General example

{{Infobox person/Wikidata
 | suppressfields=occupation children
 | dateformat = dmy
 | noicon=on
...
}}

This will prevent the infobox from displaying the fields for occupation or children. |noicon=on will suppress the pencil icons in favour of a single "edit on Wikidata" link at the bottom (see Tolstoy, right).

Specific example

Ludwig van Beethoven

In Art & Architecture Thesaurus (Q255)

{{Infobox person/Wikidata
 | suppressfields=birth_date
 | fetchwikidata=ALL
 | dateformat = dmy
}}

This fetches information on place of birth, baptism, death, citizenship, etc. - but not date of birth as that is not known.
