Template:Biography/doc

From PathfinderWiki

{{Biography}} is for use in any article about a writer, editor, publisher or otherwise credited contributor to the Pathfinder campaign setting. Some parameters are optional and can be left blank; if undefined, these optional parameters will not appear as part of the template. The recommended image size is a width of 250px so that it will completely fill the infobox without increasing its size.

This template is based upon the Book and Deity templates at the Forgotten Realms Wiki.

The person's name.
homepage (optional} 
The subject's personal or professional homepage. Use the format [url pagename] to allow for proper functionality within the template.

artworkby (optional)
Links to the artist's category of artwork, such as "Category:Artwork by (artworkby)". Default is empty; using {{PAGENAME}} applies the article's name. Do not use this parameter if there is a {{gallery}} of the artist's work on the page that links to the artist's category.
worksby (optional)
Links to the author's category of published works, such as "Category:Works by (worksby)". Default is empty; using {{PAGENAME}} applies the article's name. Do not use this parameter if there is a {{creditsopen}}/{{creditsclose}} section that links to the creator's category.
