{{Infobox artist discography}} is the standard infobox for discography articles, and is within the purview of WikiProject Albums. Please discuss major changes on the talk page before making them.

This template is designed for use in discography articles within Гурӯҳ:Discographies. It displays the number of studio albums, live albums, compilation albums, singles, video releases, EPs, etc., by an artist or group.


This template should be placed in an article at the top of the page, before the introduction.

When using the template, it is not necessary to delete any fields that are not being used. Most fields are optional; if no data is supplied, the row will simply not appear once the page is saved.


The name of the group or artist ("the act") in plain text only. Logos and other graphics are to be avoided in this field in accordance with WP:ACCESS and WP:FAIR. Use an internal link or piped internal link to the main article about the artist. For help with internal links, see the Editing FAQ. This field is mandatory.


An image of the act, sufficiently clear for display at 200 pixels' width. Set to only the image name, e.g. Example.png, not Image:Example.png or [[Image:Example.png|200px|abc]]. Images used should ideally be free images; that is, not subject to copyright restrictions. If no free image is available it may be possible to use a non-free image under a claim of fair use, provided the image meets Wikipedia's non-free content criteria (for more information see WP:NFCC and WP:NFC).


Alt text for the image, as per WP:ALT. This is for describing the image to people who cannot see the image, and typically should not be the same as the caption.


Caption for the image to be displayed. Do not link years in the caption e.g. do not link [[2007]].

Types of releases

There are individual fields for the various types of releases (studio, live, compilation, video, music videos, tribute, EP, singles, b-sides, and soundtrack). In each field place the number of each type that the artist has released. Use only numeric values in these fields. For other types of releases, see "Advanced usage" below.

Advanced usage

Modifying section links

If the discography doesn't use the titles as used in this template, you may modify the destination links (which appear as the diagonal arrow in the template) by using the following parameters to link from the infobox to the appropriate section. Unless your section is named exactly as used in this infobox, it will not map to the correct part of the page or will only link to the top of the discography page.

List of infobox parameters, with captions displayed and link names used by default

Optional sections

Please use these functions sparingly.

As not all musical artists are the same, some will have the need to have different sections linked in their discography, such as a collaboration section, unreleased songs or others. In order to list these options, there are four parameters instead of just two. The first two parameters, |Option= and |Option name= are mandatory if you wish to use this portion of the template. The standard color is a medium gray (see the Customised link parameter table below); however, the example on the right employs the color selection parameter, |Option color= converting the color to "turquoise". The |Option link= parameter is optional, and when unused, it uses the same information from |Option name=. However, with long titles, it may not be preferable to use the full title (as in the example, it is "Side projects", but links to "Side projects and collaborations"). You may add up to six (6) optional fields. It is advised to use these only in sequence. The basic option only requires the input as shown below. To use a second option simply add "1" in front of ALL of the parameters for the second time, "2" in front of the third, and so on.

Customised link parameter table
Infobox option parameter Parameter purpose Required?
 |Option       =  The number of instances of the option shown in the discography Mandatory
 |Option name  =  The name or type of the Option, such as "Collaborations" Mandatory
 |Option link  =  The link to the list of instances (must match a heading on page) Optional
 |Option color =  The color you wish to use for the background of the section in the infobox Optional
