  • Wiki links [[]] are fine in any of the Infobox fields.
  • Include the HTML comments before and following the template; they help inexperienced editors.
  • Please spend some time at the WikiProject Poetry and its talk page to find about standards on presenting names and other data.
  • In the "language" field, link to the article that is actually about the language; for example, use [[French language|French]], not [[French]]
  • The preceded_by and followed_by fields both apply to poems in a series and to sequels. They should not connect separate poems chronologically.
  • Separate multiple values (e.g. two translators) using {{Plainlist}} or {{Flatlist}}
