Hey that's great template.One input I would like to pvdiroe is, it would be great if you can put drop-down in solutions tab, if any organization having multiple verticals, can also use that.Cheers,Divyang

Usage

Depending on the parameters specified, this template displays a person's birth or death year, or full birth or death date, with or without the person's age. It therefore combines the functionality of the following templates:

Using this template rather than simply inserting the date into articles allows for the inclusion of hidden metadata about the date. This metadata can be used by web browsers and other software tools to extract the details, and display them using some other website or mapping tool, index or search them.

The minimum information required by the template is a birth or death year.

Syntax

{{BirthDeathAge | [insert "B" for a birth date, or leave blank for a death date] |
[1986] | [may] | [17] | [year of death] |
[month of death] | [day of death]}}

Any missing information can simply be left out of the template: see the examples below.

Examples

For readability, spaces have been inserted between pipe symbols ("|") where information has not been inserted into the template. When using the template, these spaces can be omitted. Using {{^}} can help space the template

Spacing

{{BirthDeathAge|{{^}}|1976|{{^}}|{{^}}|2007|1|1}}

January 1, 2007 (aged 30–31)


Date format

An optional parameter, date format, can be set to "yes" to display the day before the month. This is primarily used in articles about people from parts of the world where the day precedes the month in a date.

{{BirthDeathAge|B|1976|1|1|{{^}}|{{^}}|{{^}}}}

January 1, 1976 (1976-01-01) (age 44)

{{BirthDeathAge|B|1976|1|1|{{^}}|{{^}}|{{^}}|yes}}
