Wikipedia:WikiProject Infoboxes

This WikiProject provides a central location for infobox designers and maintainers to assist each other in their work. Many different people are working on infoboxes, and occasionally need the input of others in order to get something to work—or some designers may simply be unfamiliar with certain tricks and features. The only way that such discussion takes place now is generally via the talk pages of various templates or across different user talk pages. By establishing this project as a central location for such discussions, more people can be of assistance.

For statistics on Infobox usage, see /Statistics.

Main objective


If someone has problems/difficulties getting a certain template to work, these problems/difficulties can be posted on the talk page, with each problem as a separate thread.

Benefits of infoboxes

  • A quick and convenient summary of the key facts about a subject, in a consistent format and layout
  • Emission of machine readable metadata
    • Infoboxes about people, places, buildings, organisations, products, species and dated events (battles, sports fixtures, record releases, etc) and more emit microformats; see Wikipedia:Microformats
    • Data held in structured format is made available to third party tools such as DBpedia and Freebase directly from Wikipedia database dumps
    • Article editors do not need to know anything about metadata standards or markup
    • Increasing integration with Wikidata
