Template:Title without disambig at the Internet Movie Database

50px Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This is a template to generate links to Internet Movie Database, used exclusively for NAMES.

To link a movie, use {{IMDb title}} instead.
To link a tv episode, use {{IMDb episode}} instead.
To link a character, use {{IMDb character}} instead.


The required parameter is the ID number. The template then uses the article title as the anchor text:

* {{IMDb name |ID}}
* {{IMDb name | id = ID }}

To have the link text be other than the article name, use second parameter:

* {{IMDb name |ID |Name}}
* {{IMDb name | id = ID | name = Name}}

This can be used when the Wikipedia page name contains disambiguation brackets; for example at the page John Smith (actor) use {{IMDb name|0808774|John Smith}} to have "John Smith at the Internet Movie Database" rather than "John Smith (actor) at the Internet Movie Database". This is also necessary should you need to add an IMDb link to an article about somebody or something other than the linked person (for example, if you include the IMDb link for Bette Davis in the Joan Crawford article, you must specify Bette Davis's name as the text for the link using this option).

Note that the options include the "*" for a bulleted list since this is most likely to be used in an "External links" section.

There is also the section parameter which can be set to awards or bio to link to the Awards or Biography section of the site.
