Purpose[rætta wikitekst]

This template has two functions:

  1. To provide correct formatting of film release dates and their locations within {{Infobox film}}. A citation for each date/location may also be supplied.
  2. To automatically categorize films according to their first release date.

Usage[rætta wikitekst]

This template is intended to supply a result to the |released= parameter of {{Infobox film}}.

The template adds either Category:Upcoming films for films before their first release or [[Category:YYYY films]] after their first release date, where YYYY is the year of first release.

Syntax[rætta wikitekst]

This template allows up to five release dates/locations, but normally no more than two are needed. Please see WP:FILMRELEASE for a full explanation.

One release date only[rætta wikitekst]

  • {{Film date|year|month|day|location|ref1=<ref name="xxxxx" />}}

If no location is specified, month and day may be omitted. If location is specified, then month and day must be supplied, though they may be left blank or empty if not known; ref1= is an optional parameter allowing a named reference ("xxxxx") to be used to verify the date/location of the release.

More than one release date[rætta wikitekst]

  • {{Film date|year1|month1|day1|location1|ref1=<ref name="xxxxx" />|year2|month2|day2|location2|ref2=<ref name="yyyy" />}} and similarly for up to five dates/locations.

In this case, all the year, month, day and location parameters, except the last, must be supplied, but as before, month and day may be left empty or blank if not known. Note that ref1=, ref2=, etc. are optional named parameters, and may be omitted without affecting the other parameters.

Examples[rætta wikitekst]

{{Film date|1993}} returns:

  • 1993 (1993)

{{Film date|1993|02}} returns:

  • februar 1993 (1993-02)

{{Film date|1993|02|24}} returns:

  • 24 februar 1993 (1993-02-24)

{{Film date|1993|February|24}} returns:

  • 24 februar 1993 (1993-February-24)

{{Film date|1993|02|24||2008|03}} returns:

  • 24 februar 1993 (1993-02-24)
  • mars 2008 (2008-03)

{{Film date|1993|02|24|Latvia}} returns:

  • 24 februar 1993 (1993-02-24) (Latvia)

{{Film date|1993|02|24||2008|03|23}} returns:

  • 24 februar 1993 (1993-02-24)
  • 23 mars 2008 (2008-03-23)

Optional parameters[rætta wikitekst]

  • df can be set to "y" or "yes" to display the day before the month. Default is month before day.

{{Film date|1993|02|24|df=y}} returns:

  • 24 februar 1993 (1993-02-24)

{{Film date|1993|02|24|Latvia|df=y}} returns:

  • 24 februar 1993 (1993-02-24) (Latvia)


  • fy can be set to override the automatic category. For example:

{{Film date|1993|02|24||2008|03|23}} uses the category Bólkur:1993 filmar

{{Film date|1993|02|24||2008|03|23|fy=2008}} uses the category Bólkur:2008 filmar.


  • TV is to be used for television films. It sorts films into [[Category:YYYY television filmar]] in place of [[Category:YYYY filmar]]. Set TV=y or TV=yes to do this.


  • ref1, ref2, ref3, ref4, ref5 are used to supply named references. See above for detail.

Technical note[rætta wikitekst]

This template uses {{Start date}} to handle the hard work of date formatting, and {{Plainlist}} to format list items as recommended for use within infoboxes.
