This template is designed for a text page, so that the a link to the text can appear on the author's page, using template {{AuthorTextsList}}. Template Author may also be used on a work page, below the text.


{{Author|<Author>|<First text line>|yr=<year>|page=<text or work>|an2=<aname2>|an3=<aname3>|pub=<pubname>}}


  1. Author's name, exactly as it appears on the Author (Lyricist) page.
  2. First line of text, same as a text page title (without the author's name) but not necessarily the work page title. This text will appear on the Author-Lyricist's page under Texts by (Author).
  • yr= – Year the text was published.
  • page= – One of three words: (a) text for use as a separate line on a text page, or (b) work for use following text on a work page, or (c) line for use within a text line on a work page or text page. Defaults to text
  • an2= – (Optional) second author.
  • an3= – (Optional) third author.
  • pub= – (Optional) title of publication where text first appeared. If you want a link to appear, you must supply square brackets; please do not use either template {{NoCo}} or {{NoComp}} – the curly brackets will mess up the program.
