About this Template

  • Template can be used for singles, albums, or other DVD releases--parts exclusive to one type and not given will not display.
  • Will only show Chronology section if there's a Next or Last given.
  • Albums can list up to 10 singles.
  • Section for more images. This is ideal for Morning Musume, ANGERME, etc. releases.

This template was originally created as a combination of some previous infobox templates (Template:Single Infobox, Template:Single Infobox5, Template:Album Infobox). It can do all they could and more. Following is a rundown of the parameters that it can currently be given. They can be given in any order (or left out completely), but here they're generally listed in the order they appear within the template itself.



|name = Name of the single/album. It defaults to using the name of the page it's on.
|Japanese = The Japanese version of the name, in kanji/kana. If it is a rare case of actually being with completely western characters, this is unnecessary.
|Cover = Image file name for the cover--or the regular/main cover, in the case of releases with multiple editions.
|Caption = Caption for cover. Considering the title of the release will be right above it, usually this will be blank or something like "Regular Edition".
|Cover2 = Can input just a file name, as with regular |Cover . Can also display multiple covers using something like Template:OtherCoversTabber. It also works with images given in [[File:]] format, though that's mostly for legacy purposes--Cover2 did not always allow input of just the file name.
|Caption2 = The |Caption counterpart for Cover2
|type = Single or Album or DVD or otherwise
|typedescriptor = Since type will be used elsewhere and we don't want extra words to go with it, this is where those extra words go. This is for when you want something like a "Best" Album or a "Cover" Single.
|artist = Group or person name. Doesn't link to the name by default, so remember brackets around the name. This would also allow you to link to one page while displaying another alias.
|album = This is necessary only for singles, to tell what album they eventually became a part of. Again, you must create the link yourself with brackets.
|released = Release date
|genre = Genre
|format = Formats of release. Usually stuff like CD, CD+DVD, Single V.
|recorded = Year of recording. Usually the same as the release, though for albums it can span several years.
|length = Length of album/single in hours:minutes:seconds.
|language = Language. Rarely used since the vast majority of content covered here is Japanese.
|label = What record label released the single/album. Might want to use Template:LinkBug.
|producer = Producer
|Last = Previous single or album released. Write it as a link, along with short description ("3rd album") and year of release ("(2011)").
|Same = Same format as Last, but for the rare case of multiple releases on the same day.
|Next = Same format as Last, but for the Next one.
|Single1 =
|Single2 =
|Single3 = and on through Single10. This is where, if the infobox is for an album, you can provide links to the singles the album is the first to contain the A-sides of.


Multi-Chronology option

In the odd case of artist collaborations, the standard features above are a bit lacking, so the ability to have multiple Chronology sections has been added. Instead of the usual Last and Next, use
|Chronology1 = The subsection wording. Completely custom, so fill in fully, like [[S/mileage]] Singles Chronology
|Last1 = Use just as you'd use Last
|Same1 = Use just as you'd use Same
|Next1 = Use just as you'd use Next
For now these numbers work up through 6, though there's no reason this couldn't be edited to allow more very easily. In case they release a future Mobekimasu single requiring more.
