Includes a small Wikidata-enabled infobox on category pages. See Commons:Wikidata infobox help for the FAQ.

The template automatically sets the following categories:

  • Interwikis from Wikidata
  • For people: given name(s) and surname(s), alive/deceased person/man/woman, years of birth and death, awards


{{Wikidata Infobox |qid= |interwiki= |defaultsort= }}

English: In most cases it can be used simply as {{Wikidata Infobox}}. The category page needs to be linked to through a sitelink on Wikidata (under 'other sites', add the correct sitelink to 'commons'). The Wikidata entry can either be directly about the category's topic, or include the category's main topic (P301).

Common issues:

If you see a title starting with Q, then that means that the topic does not have a label in English - to fix this, add an English label on Wikidata. If you see content that's not in your own language, then that probably means that a label isn't available in your language - to fix this, add the appropriate label in your language on Wikidata.

If you spot a problem with the information displayed in the infobox, please first try to fix it on Wikidata. For further info see Commons:Wikidata infobox help, which also has extensive information about the many types of images desired on Wikidata. If that fails, ask on the template talk page.

If the infobox is empty, or it doesn't contain all of the information you think it should, then please expand the Wikidata entry. The infobox should grow accordingly, though the page on Wikimedia Commons might need purging to show very recent updates from Wikidata.


If you do not want to see the infobox, then add #wdinfobox { display: none;} to Special:MyPage/common.css and it will not be displayed.

To display the infobox in a horizontal format, add the following to Special:MyPage/common.css. Note that this will only work in some browsers (Chrome and Safari should work, but Firefox won't):

#wdinfobox { width:100%!important; clear:both!important; display: block; -webkit-column-count: 4; -ms-column-count: 4; -moz-column-count: 4; column-count: 4; }

You can also use Javascript to change the settings by adding the following to Special:MyPage/common.js:

  • To auto-hide the whole infobox: $( "#wdinfobox" ).addClass( "mw-collapsed" );
  • To auto-hide the authority control: $( "#wdinfo_ac" ).addClass( "mw-collapsed" );
  • To auto-hide the taxon tree: $( "#wdinfo_taxon" ).addClass( "mw-collapsed" );
  • To never display the infobox: $( "#wdinfobox" ).addClass( "wdinfobox_hide" );
  • To display the infobox horizontally: $( "#wdinfobox" ).addClass( "wdinfobox_horizontal" );


Uses of this template are categorised into Category:Uses of Wikidata Infobox or Category:Uses of Wikidata Infobox with problems depending on whether the template can find a QID.
