While none of the parameters are compulsory (in the sense of making the template break), certain ones would need to be used if the infobox is to be a useful one.

Parameter Explanation
name The name of the television film or miniseries. Use the full name of the film, and do not wikilink it.
image An image relevant to the show. No wiki-markup required.
image_size The width, including trailing "px". Defaults to 250px; shouldn't need to be much larger than that.
caption A caption explaining the image. An image with the title logo of the show does not need a caption.
genre The genre of the show (examples listed at television program). Separate multiple genres with line breaks (<br>).

Use this field in conjunction with screenplay and story where applicable (i.e. "Screen story") if films are based on previously produced or published material, such as books, plays, articles, old screenplays etc. Use {{based on}} or similar formatting where possible. Do not use this field where the source material is ambiguous.

Microformat

The HTML mark up produced by this template includes an hCalendar microformat, which makes the event details parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue articles across Wikinfo, or via a browser tool operated by a person, to (for example) add the subject to a calendar or diary application. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikinfo, please see the microformat project.

Sub-templates

Dates will only be included if you use {{Start date}} or {{End date}} (use the former for single dates; but do not use any of these if the date is before 1583 CE).

URLs will only be included if you use {{URL}}.

Please do not remove instances of these sub-templates.

Classes

hCalendar uses HTML classes including:

  • attendee
  • contact
  • description
  • dtend
  • dtstart
  • location
  • organiser
  • summary
  • url
  • vevent

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