Parameters

Required

  • |artist= – The artist's name. This must be the same as the pagename of the artist's page.
    Exception: Collaboration albums and split releases (see section Special Parameters below). In these cases, the artist parameter should be omitted.
  • |album= – The album title. This does not have to be the same as the album title part of the pagename.
  • |star= – Violet, Green, Bronze, Silver or Gold. See LyricWiki:Page ranking for more information.

Recommended

  • |length= – The album's length (as mm:ss). If unknown, leave this parameter blank; do not insert "00:00". For albums where different versions exist with different lengths, these can be separated with line break tags:
    |length = 33:45 (original release) <br /> 50:31 (CD reissue)
  • |genre= – The album's genre. Only one genre is allowed; do not try to enter several separated by hyphens or slashes! All currently used genres can be found at Category:Genre.
    Exception: For soundtracks and works, the genre parameter is ignored. See the Special Parameters section below.
  • |cover= – The filename of the album's cover art, e.g. Yep - She Just Can't Let It Alone.jpg. Only local images or images on Wikimedia Commons are allowed. If the file does not exist, you can upload it; see the help page for more information.
    • If the image has been deleted for ToU or copyright reasons, replace this paramater with removed.
    • If no album art exists, or it is impossible to find, replace this paramater with unavailable.
    • In both cases, a placeholder image will be displayed. See Help:No Artwork Available for more information.
  • |wikipedia= – Creates a link to the album's Wikipedia article. Use only the article name, not the complete URL!

Optional

  • |alias= – Changes the display text of the link to the artist page. Only necessary if the artist's name varies from album to album (e.g. with or without "The", "&" as opposed to "and").
  • |roman= – If the album title is in a non-Latin script, this parameter can be used to add the romanized title.
  • |type= – The album type that is displayed above the tracklist. Default is "album". The following types have special functions:
    1. compilation – The page is added to Category:Compilation. See the help page for more information.
    2. soundtrack – The page is added to Category:Soundtrack. The genre parameter is ignored, stype must be used instead (see below).
    3. work – The page is added to Category:Work. The genre parameter is ignored, wtype must be used instead (see below).

Special Parameters

  • |stype= – If type is set to "soundtrack", this replaces the genre parameter. See the help page on soundtracks for available stypes. The genre parameter will be ignored.
  • |wtype= – If type is set to "work", this replaces the genre parameter. See the help page on music from pre-recording eras for more information. The genre parameter will be ignored.
  • |artist1=, |artist2= ... |artist5= – If the album is credited to more than one artist (example album), these parameters can be used instead of the Artist parameter. They should be used in order, and the first two need to be specified. Not to be confused with split releases!
    The page will be added to Category:Album Collaborations.
  • |split1=, |split2= ... |split5= – If the album features songs credited separately to more than one artist (example album), these parameters can be used instead of the Artist parameter. They should be used in order, and the first two need to be specified. Not to be confused with collaborations!
    The page will be added to Category:Split Releases.
  • |alias1=, |alias2= ... |alias5= – Like |alias= above, to be used with artist1…artist5 or split1…split5.
  • |aotw-from= and |aotw-to= – If the album has been Album of the Week, these parameters will produce a badge below the infobox.
