Usage
{{sortname|first|last|optional link target|optional sort key}}

Creates a wikilinked name that can be used in a sortable table (created with class="wikitable sortable").

  • The default sort key is "last, first".
  • The link label is "first last".
  • The default link target is "first last"

The optional link target is useful when "first last" is a disambiguation page instead of the desired article, or when linking to a section of a page.

The optional sort key is useful in the case of special characters such as é.

Optional parameter
|nolink=1

Suppresses wikilinking the name, useful for list entries which are never likely to have articles so shouldn't be redlinked.

Microformat

The HTML markup produced by this template includes an hCard microformat, which makes the person's name parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue articles across Wikipedia or via a browser tool operated by a reader, to (for example) add the subject to an address book. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please see the microformat project.

To include a URL, use {{URL}}.

The hCard in this template uses at least some of these HTML classes:

  • agent
  • family-name
  • fn (required)
  • given-name
  • honorific-prefix
  • honorific-suffix
  • n
  • nickname
  • org
  • url
  • vcard

Please do not rename or remove these classes; nor collapse nested elements which use them.
