Template:Birth date and age/doc

From FORwiki

Jump to: navigation, search

These templates ({{Birth date}} and {{Birth date and age}}) return a person’s date of birth and optionally his/her age. These have the shortcuts {{dob}} and {{bda}} respectively.

Do NOT use this template when the person’s exact date of birth is disputed or unknown.

Using this template rather than simply inserting the date into articles allows for the inclusion of hidden metadata about the date. This metadata can be used by web browsers and other software tools to extract the details, and display them using some other website or mapping tool, index or search them.



To display the birth date only

{{Birth date|year of birth|month of birth|day of birth|additional parameters}} Do not use with non-Gregorian dates because the resulting hCard hidden date will be false.

{{dob}} is a redirect to {{Birth date}}

{{dob|year of birth|month of birth|day of birth|additional parameters}}

To display a birth date with calculated age

{{Birth date and age|year of birth|month of birth|day of birth|additional parameters}}

This form is only intended for living persons. In the rare case that a living person's birth date is given in a non-Gregorian calendar this template should not be used. The parameter names 'year', 'month', and 'day' can be used instead of the first, second, and third parameters for 'Birth date and age' only. These parameter names are not available for the 'Birth date' template.

{{Bda}} is a redirect to {{Birth date and age}}

{{Bda|year of birth|month of birth|day of birth|additional parameters}}
