Data types[edit source]

Wikidata content is used as fallback for all identifiers.

The template validates digits for all values and shows an error if the check fails.

Wherever possible, the template also generates a link to WorldCat Identities, using VIAF or LCCN values, or manually via |WORLDCATID=.

Position[edit source]

As a metadata template, the Authority control template should be placed after the external links section and navigation templates, right before the categories.

Usage[edit source]

As a general guideline:

1: insert the empty version,
2: click "Show preview" to see which sources are automatically pulled from Wikidata,
3a: if you know of more sources, add them in the template using their named parameter,
3b: alternatively, consider adding those sources to the article's "Wikidata item", so that all versions of Wikipedia will automatically benefit.

In addition to the mixed-case parameter names listed on this page, the template also supports all-lowercase alias names of all parameters (except for deprecated ones).

Template loop detected: Template:Authority control

Rendering[edit source]

The template is split into seven sections: "General", "National libraries", "Art galleries and museums", "Art research institutes", "Biographical dictionaries", "Scientific databases", and "Other". If all identifiers are in the same section, |state= is ignored, and the template displays on one line: Template loop detected: Template:Authority control Otherwise, the template displays as a navbox with a header: Template loop detected: Template:Authority control

Initial visibility: currently defaults to autocollapse

To set this template's initial visibility, the |state= parameter may be used:

  • |state=collapsed: {{Ali Merchant|state=collapsed}} to show the template collapsed, i.e., hidden apart from its title bar
  • |state=expanded: {{Ali Merchant|state=expanded}} to show the template expanded, i.e., fully visible
  • |state=autocollapse: {{Ali Merchant|state=autocollapse}}
    • shows the template collapsed to the title bar if there is a {{navbar}}, a {{sidebar}}, or some other table on the page with the collapsible attribute
    • shows the template in its expanded state if there are no other collapsible items on the page

If the |state= parameter in the template on this page is not set, the template's initial visibility is taken from the |default= parameter in the Collapsible option template. For the template on this page, that currently evaluates to autocollapse.
