50px Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This infobox is for providing general information about a Christian church, including its history, architecture and staff. To provide information solely about the architectural details of a church building, use "{{Infobox religious building}}".

Churches vary from small chapels to large cathedrals; from corrugated iron sheds to architectural masterpieces of international importance. This template has to be adaptable to all Christian churches and as a consequence has many parameters. It is therefore important that editors exercise discretion in selecting an appropriate number of parameters. If the infobox for a particular church becomes excessive WP:BOLD applies and less significant parameters should be removed.

Parameters[edit source]

Parameter Description
Name and image
name The common name of the church. If this is omitted, the article name is used.
fullname The full name of the church, if this is different from its common name. For instance, "Westminster Abbey" can be placed in the "name" parameter, and "The Collegiate Church of St Peter, Westminster" in the "fullname" parameter.
other name Significant nicknames; name in native language (using {{lang}}. Separate multiple values using {{Plainlist}}.
image / img The name of an image file containing a photograph of the church. If the image is called "File:WesleyMethodistChurch-sepiapostcard.jpg", just type "WesleyMethodistChurch-sepiapostcard.jpg". Do not include "File:" or enclose the file name in double square brackets ("[[ ]]").
imagesize / img size The width of the image in pixels (px). For example, if you wish the image to be 150px wide, type "150". Do not add "px" after the number. If no number is stated, the width defaults to 220px for an image for a portrait image (i.e., one the width of which is shorter than the height) and 300px for a landscape image (one the width of which is longer than the height).
imagelink A hyperlink for the image. This can either be a URL or the name of a Wikipedia article. Do not enclose the URL or article name in square brackets. If no link is specified or the parameter is omitted, the image is linked to its image description page.
imagealt Alt text for the image. For more information, see "Wikipedia:Alternative text for images".
landscape Indicate "yes" if the image has a landscape orientation, that is, if its width is longer than its height.
caption / img capt The caption for the image.
Pushpin map, coordinates and location
pushpin map The country name of a location map, e.g., "Indonesia", "Russia". See "Category:Location map by country templates" for a list of countries for which location maps are currently available. For information on creating new maps, see "Template:Location map#Creating new maps". The coordinate fields below position a pushpin coordinate marker and label on the location map automatically.
pushpin label position The position of the label on the pushpin map relative to the pushpin coordinate marker. Valid options are "left", "right", "top", "bottom" and "none". If this parameter is not used or no value is specified, the default value is "right".

pushpin mapsize Must be entered only as a number – do not type "px" after it. The default value is 250.
map caption A caption for the pushpin map.
relief Any non-empty value will load a relief version of the location map if available, (instead of the default, blank administrative location map).
latd The degrees of the latitude. Can also be used for decimal degrees.

osgridref As for |osgraw= above, but code as "{{gbmappingsmall|TQ 414 104}}". Note: use |osgraw= or |osgridref=, not both.

Microformat[edit source]

The HTML mark up produced by this template includes an hCard microformat, which makes the place-name and location parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue article across Wikipedia, or via a browser tool operated by a person, to (for example) add the subject to an address book. Within the hCard is a Geo microformat, which additionally makes the coordinates (latitude & longitude) parsable, so that they can be, say, looked up on a map, or downloaded to a GPS unit. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please see the microformat project.

Sub-templates[edit source]

If the place or venue has an "established", "founded", "opened" or similar date, use {{start date}} unless the date is before 1583 CE.

If it has a URL, use {{URL}}.

Please do not remove instances of these sub-templates.

Classes[edit source]

hCard uses HTML classes including:

  • adr
  • agent
  • category
  • county-name
  • extended-address
  • fn
  • label
  • locality
  • nickname
  • note
  • org
  • region
  • street-address
  • uid
  • url
  • vcard

Geo is produced by calling {{coord}}, and uses HTML classes:

  • geo
  • latitude
  • longitude

Please do not rename or remove these classes nor collapse nested elements which use them.

Precision[edit source]

When giving coordinates, please use an appropriate level of precision. Do not use {{coord}}'s |name= parameter.
