Template documentation[edit] [history] [purge]

This recipe infobox supports a very large number of fields, including some specialty fields that will rarely be used. Some fields simply don't make sense in some cases. Some different sets of code have been prepared using only the most common fields. Select the most appropriate set below and copy and paste the entire code to the top of a recipe article, then fill in as many fields as possible. Empty fields should generally be kept so that a future editor can fill them in unless they make no sense for the recipe in question.

If you have ideas for improvements or would like to add brand new fields to these templates, please post on Template talk:Infobox Recipe Begin to discuss the changes and how they should be implemented.

Usage[edit]

Code for most recipes[edit]

For infoboxes of individual recipes, please copy the appropriate example for that recipe:

Parameters[edit]

Most fields are self-explanatory, but here are some tips:

  1. Image If your article does not have an image in this field, the recipe will automatically be listed at the hidden category Category:Recipes without images. Editors can use the category to easily see a list of infoboxes where no image is attached and work to find pictures.
  2. Caption, the caption for the recipe's picture, should be left blank if no extra information about the picture is available; don't just fill in the recipe's name.

Summary box[edit]

Nutrition box[edit]

  • Give sodium in milligrams.
  • Other vitamins and minerals are given in percentage of RDA for a 2,000 calorie diet.
  • Other values can be determined by looking at the template: for example, sugars are shown in grams, and this can be read from the template.
  • If a value is given for the Reference parameter, it will be displayed in the references list, for example where the {{Reflist}} template is used in the page. This reference can be reused with <ref name="nutrition"/>

Alternate spellings[edit]

  • No support for alternate spellings is currently provided.

Removing extra fields[edit]

It's generally a good idea not to remove fields, because another editor might be able to provide the information later. However, in the case of mutually exclusive fields the unused field can be removed if desired. Also, if a section is repeated (to show multiple periods in commission, for example), fields that are inappropriate to duplicate can be removed if desired.

Tricks and tips[edit]

Repeating sections[edit]

This infobox allows you to repeat sections. To repeat, just make a copy of the section to be repeated. You can repeat the Image, Summary, or Nutrition sections. Here is an example, with extra fields removed for clarity:

| Caption             = Eärgon chili ingredients
}}
|}

Custom fields[edit]

It is possible to add custom fields to the infobox using standard Wiki table syntax. This is not encouraged, because infoboxes are intended to standardize the appearance of recipe articles, but it can be done if needed. See the above example, where "Custom field" and "Custom value" fields are added to the infobox.
