Parameters

Name 
This field should contain the name of the single. This field is mandatory.
Cover 
Upload a copy of the single cover (under fair use—use the tag "{{Non-free album cover}}"). Enter the file name only into the field: <Image Name>.jpg.
Border 
Type "yes" in this field to place a 1px border around the single's cover.
Alt 
Alt text for the cover image, to describe it to visually impaired readers. See WP:ALT.
Artist 
This field should contain the name of the artist. This field is mandatory.
Album 
If the single was also released on an album, enter the name of the album. If the album has a Wikipedia article, link the article name as usual. The template will italicize the album name. For guidelines on whether a single should be described as being from a particular album, see template:infobox album#Template:Singles.
A-side 
Use this field to display the A-side song title appearing on the opposite side of the single. If it has a Wikipedia article use a link.
B-side 
Use this field to display the B-side song title appearing on the opposite side of the single. If it has a Wikipedia article use a link. Only one of the fields "A-side" or "B-side" should be used.
Released 
This field should refer to the earliest known commercial release date, using a single occurrence of {{Start date}} as {{Start date|YYYY|MM|DD}}, for example "{{Start date|2007|7|31}}". (Use "{{Start date|YYYY|MM}}" if only year and month are known, or "{{Start date|YYYY}}" for just a year).
Recorded 
This field should include the date(s) the single was recorded. The location of the recording is now included in the Studio or Venue field.
Venue 
For live recordings, include the name of the venue (concert hall, stadium, etc.) and location. Link as appropriate.
Studio 
If the single was recorded in a recording studio, enter the name and location here. Link the studio, but not well-known cities (see WP:OVERLINK). Separate multiple values using commas, {{flatlist}} or {{hlist}}.[1]
Format
The way that the single was originally released; i.e. 7-inch single, 12-inch single, CD single, cassette single, digital download (note the piped download link). Do not use " or (double quote) for inches (use 7-inch instead of 7"; if necessary to abbreviate, use 7 in). See WP:Units. Numbers should be expressed in figures rather than spelled out (use 10-inch instead of ten-inch). The format type should also be specified (single, record, etc.), rather than using the measurement alone. Separate multiple values using commas, {{flatlist}} or {{hlist}}.[1]
Genre
The music genre(s) that the single is from. These must not be original research, and should be stated and referenced in a 'Composition' section of the article. Separate multiple values using commas, {{flatlist}} or {{hlist}}.[1].
Length 
The length should use {{Duration}} thus: {{Duration|m=3|s=45}}, renders as 3:45, for 3 minutes 45 seconds
Label 
This field should refer to the label on which the single/album was originally released. Where significantly different versions have been released (featuring alternate track listings) e.g. U.S. vs. UK, the later release date and/or record label should be mentioned in the article. Drop words like "Records" from the end of the label's name (e.g. use [[Universal Records|Universal]] rather than [[Universal Records]]).
Producer 
This field allows display of the song's producer(s). Separate multiple values using commas, {{flatlist}} or {{hlist}}.[1]
ISWC 
International Standard Musical Work Code
Writer 
This field allows display of the song's writer(s). Separate multiple values using commas, {{flatlist}} or {{hlist}}.[1].
Misc 
This field allows you to provide more infobox data such as additional chronologies using {{Extra chronology}}, a track listing using {{Extra track listing}}, extra covers using {{Extra album cover}}, or a sample of the music using {{Audiosample}}. Set |Type=single on those templates so the section titles use the same background color as the rest of the infobox.

Chronology

The chronology section should link to the previous single on the left and the next single on the right. Songs should be ordered based on the first release dates of their official singles.

  • For first singles the left box (the "{{{1}}}" field) should be left blank.
  • For latest singles, the right box (the "{{{1}}}" field) should be left blank.

By default, the chronology section begins with an "artist Chronology" header. If you specify the optional "{{{1}}}" field, the text you supply will replace the "artist" portion of that header. This is useful when a single is released by two or more artists and you want to supply a chronology for each using the built-in chronology for one artist and the {{Extra chronology}} template for the other(s).

Wikipedia's date style guidelines recommend that years should not be linked within the chronology section.

  • Note: album cover images should NOT be used in this section as they do not meet Wikipedia fair use requirements.

Examples

Here are some examples of articles using the infoboxes:

Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 1.4 For short horizontal lists of two or three items, comma separators are acceptable, but for longer lists the use of {{flatlist}} or {{hlist}} is preferred as they offer a benefit to users of screen readers. Vertical lists should always be implemented by {{plainlist}} or {{ubl}} and never by <br /> tags for reasons of accessibility.

Microformat

The HTML mark-up produced by this template includes an hCalendar microformat that makes event details readily parsable by computer programs. This aids tasks such as the cataloguing of articles and maintenance of databases. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please visit the Microformat WikiProject.

Classes used

The HTML classes this microformat uses include:

  • 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.
