Kigezo:Birth date and age

Jump to navigation Jump to 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.

Syntax[hariri chanzo]

To display the birth date only[hariri chanzo]

{{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}}[hariri chanzo]

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

To display a birth date with calculated age[hariri chanzo]

{{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}}[hariri chanzo]

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

Examples:

{{Birth date|1993|02|04|df=yes}} returns "4 Februari 1993(1993-02-04)"
{{Birth date|1993|02|04|mf=yes}} returns "Februari 4, 1993(1993-02-04)"
{{Birth date|1993|02|24|df=yes}} returns "24 Februari 1993(1993-02-24)"
{{Birth date|1993|02|24|mf=yes}} returns "Februari 24, 1993(1993-02-24)"
{{Birth date and age|1993|02|04|mf=yes}} returns Februari 4 1993 (1993-02-04) (umri 26)
{{Birth date and age|1993|02|04|df=yes}} returns 4 Februari 1993 (1993-02-04) (umri 26)
{{Birth date and age|1993|02|24|mf=yes}} returns Februari 24 1993 (1993-02-24) (umri 26)
{{Birth date and age|1993|02|24|df=yes}} returns 24 Februari 1993 (1993-02-24) (umri 26)

Month First (mf) and Day First (df) options[hariri chanzo]

The df (day first) and mf (month first) parameters indicate the intended date format to display. The appropriate parameter should be set to "y" or "yes" e.g. df=yes or mf=y.

The default output of this template is to display the day before the month.

The parameter "df", while not actually used by the template, will indicate that month first format is intended. Using these parameters can assist bots or other automated processing to detect which date format is intended; leaving the format as default may lead an editor or bot to change the format to an unintended value.

Do not specify both "df" and "mf" parameters in the same use of the template, as these formats are mutually exclusive.

Examples:

{{Birth date|1993|02|24|df=yes}} displays "24 Februari 1993(1993-02-24)".
{{Birth date and age|1993|02|24|df=yes}} displays "24 Februari 1993 (1993-02-24) (umri 26)".
{{Birth date|1993|02|24|mf=yes}} displays "Februari 24, 1993(1993-02-24)".
{{Birth date and age|1993|02|24|mf=yes}} displays "Februari 24 1993 (1993-02-24) (umri 26)".

hCard microformat[hariri chanzo]

The templates also returns the date, hidden by CSS, in the ISO 8601 format (but not necessarily to the ISO 8601 standard) needed by hCard microformats. for example:

(<span class="bday">1993-02-24</span>)

Note: for the "foundation", "built" and similar set-up dates of companies, buildings, etc., use {{Start date}} (this will work for year-only or month-year dates).

See the microformats project for details.

Notes[hariri chanzo]

When only the year of a person's birth and/or death are known, or if it is desired not to state a person's full dates of birth and death for privacy reasons, use the templates {{Birth year and age}} and {{Death year and age}} instead.

Note: The template will appear broken when the parameters are left blank (as seen above).

Note: Do not use this template inside of the Persondata template, as it can interfere with data extraction.
