Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template is based on Doujin CD Page Template's idea and created for ease of usage. An important thing to note as well is that most categories, such as Arrange CDs, circle names, and conventions, are already done by the template.

If this article is about official ZUN's CD, write "Official CDs" here. If this article is an original album by a Touhou music circle, write "Original CDs". Otherwise, delete this line (must be deleted, not simply left blank, otherwise the navigation bar will not load). Older articles have music type filled with "Arrange CDs", that use is now deprecated.
Japanese name of the album, if it contains Japanese words. If not, leave empty and use titleen instead.
Romanization of Japanese name, if applicable.
English translation of title, if original title is Japanese. If title is English, it goes here.
Group (doujin circle, label) that released the album. Use links here, like this: [[IOSYS]]. If album is collaborative, put several group names here, using comma and "and" as delimeters.
Fill these fields with romanized circle name. Find other albums by the group to find established one. It will be used for categorization and navigation box at the bottom.
Date when the album was released, in 2011-02-14 format.
Fill in the name of convention the album was released at. For example, Comiket 79.
The number of CD tracks in this album. It's OK to write in form "x+y", if the album contains several CDs.
Total running length in format HH:MM:SS. Hours can be omitted, if zero.
Catalog number. Leave this empty if there is none, it will automatically be set to n/a.
Filename of the file with album cover. If available, use catalog number for the filename. In case of name collisions or when number is unavailable, use album title.
Text to appear under the album cover. (eg. '''Cover Art:''' [[Parsee Mizuhashi]])
A small banner, that circles usually put on the album's site.
The size to be used for the banner, if left blank the default is 200 wide. Enter "x" before the number to indicated a vertical resolution. Example "300" for 300 pixels wide, "x60" for 60 pixels tall.
Set any value to allow multiple columns in the staff credits section, once set simply place {{MusicArticle/Divider}} at the start of a new line in the credits to begin a new column. MusicArticle/Divider's first parameter can be set to format the new columns style (eg. "text-align: center;", see Wikipedia:Help:Table for more info on table style options).
Use the Genre template to link to different genres.
|genre = {{Genre|Electronic}}, {{Genre|Instrumental}}, {{Genre|Trance}}
Put preformatted link to the web page here, if available. If there's no separate link to the album's page, link to the circle's page instead.
Put a series of pre-formatted links to pages offering the album digitally. If the album is free or only available in a bundle, this should be noted. Do not link to pirated copies.
Put 'y' (or any other nonempty string) if the album has bee published via Touhou Doujin Music Distribution, and leave it blank otherwise.
These fields are for names of people who contributed to this album. If several vocalists sung in this album, write them like this:
| vocalist =First
Note that these fields essentially duplicate staff specified per-track. Write them here anyway, as it's handy to know whether favorite vocalist appears in this album or doesn't at the first glance.
Also note that if any of these parameters begin with a semicolon (;) the header will be overridden (eg. beginning the arranger parameter with" ; Arrangement and Compositions" will result in the header being displayed as Arrangement and Compositions as apposed to Arrangement)
Known Limitation: parameters that exceed 1000 characters will not be able to use the semicolon override, removing hover text is a potential work around as the H:title template adds minimum 50+ characters each time it's used.
other (deprecated)
If there are staff members that can't be classified by fields above, lay out definition list here.
| other_staff = 
Set this value to remove the template generated first sentence so that there is nothing before the "description" parameter. If the value is set please retain a format that is similar to the template generated format as the beginning of the description parameter.
'''"titleen"''' (''"titlejp"'' "titlejprom") is the second compilation [[Wikipedia:Dōjin_music|doujin album]] by "group" and was released at "convention" ("released").
Use this to specify when the MusicArticle is for non-albums such as Singles, EPs, Drama CDs, etc. The text !doujin will link to Wikipedia's doujin article, (eg. "!doujin Drama CD" will come back as "doujin Drama CD")
A parameter used to auto generate the first editor entered line of the description (An album featuring vocal and instrumental arrangements of themes from etc.), to use simply enter the type of arrangements featured on the album into the parameter (eg. "vocal and instrumental"), enter "?" to leave unspecified. This parameter requires the game title abbreviation templates be used to function, also note that <nowiki /> can be used to start the description parameter as a new paragraph (See description parameter's explanation for more details).
Free-form field that will be printed right after the introduction at the same line. It should begin with a sentence formatted something like this:
| description =It features vocal and instrumental arrangements of themes from ''[[Touhou English Title 1]]'', ''[[Touhou English Title 2]]'' and ''[[Touhou English Title 3]]''.

After which you may write something about the album itself, about its popularity, or other facts. If you need to start a new paragraph without writing anything on that line, use the following hack:

| description =<nowiki />

New paragraph starts here.
The most important field. It's described in separate section below.
Use this when you want to add something just after the tracklist. Notes about tracks, for example.
Write your own opinion about the album. Don't forget to sign, like on talk pages (--~~~~)
Set this field to "yes" if you've used any <ref> tags[1]. That way template will print "References" section.

Track list[edit]

First, two examples:

*{{Track|01|Gorgeous Guardian|04:31}}
**original title: {{lang|ja|上海紅茶館 ~}} Chinese Tea
**source: {{EoSD}}

*{{Track|01|{{lang|ja|チルノのパーフェクトさんすう教室}}|04:35|lyrics=Lyrics: チルノのパーフェクトさんすう教室}}
**''Cirno's Perfect Math Class''
**arrangement: ARM
**lyrics: {{lang|ja|夕野ヨシミ}}
**original title: {{lang|ja|おてんば恋娘}}
**source: {{EoSD}}

Each track list entry consists of title line and of zero or more additional lines.

Title line is usually composed from asterix and Track template. Older articles don't use that template, because it was introduced relatively recently. Please refer to its documentation, and fill in as many options as possible.

Following fields starts with two asterisks (denoting the second level list). The first one, if applicable, is translated track title in italics. The next ones have key: value form.

feel free to use your own, not listed here
original title
Title of the song the arrange is based on. Always use original japanese title. Consult corresponding game's music list, if not sure.
The game name. Use abbreviation templates, if possible. Write original title first, and then source. If several songs were used from the game, write several original titles followed by a single source.

There are several parameters for adding chronology and PV sections to the infobox.

| chronology  =Chronology title
| chrono_prev =Previous in chronology
