Extended Discography

For a more complete, itemized discography, the discography section can be broken into sections, as follows:

{{toc right}}
==Discography==
===Albums===
* {{album link|Year|Album}}
* {{album link|Year|Album}}
* {{album link|Year|Album}}

===Singles & EPs===
* {{album link|Year|Album}}
* {{album link|Year|Album}}
* {{album link|Year|Album}}

===Collections===
* {{album link|Year|Album}}
* {{album link|Year|Album}}
* {{album link|Year|Album}}

===Compilations & Soundtracks===
* {{album link|Year|Album}}
* {{album link|Year|Album}}
* {{album link|Year|Album}}
  • The Collections section is for single artist collections, just of that artist's work. Compilations & Soundtracks is for multiple artist collections. If the artist penned an entire soundtrack, it should be entered in the Albums section.
  • Note the inclusion of the {{toc right}} template before the Discography header. This causes the Table of Contents for the page to be pushed to the right side of the screen, which looks much nicer than having it directly about the discography.

Discography with Full Song List (deprecated)

If you wish to have the full song list for each album on the main artist page, use the following format for the discography:

{{toc right}}
==Discography==
=== {{album link|Year|Album}} ===
# {{song link|Artist|Song}}
# {{song link|Artist|Song}}
# {{song link|Artist|Song}}

=== {{album link|Year|Album}} ===
==== Disc 1 ====
# {{song link|Artist|Song}}
# {{song link|Artist|Song}}
# {{song link|Artist|Song}}
==== Disc 2 ====
# {{song link|Artist|Song}}
# {{song link|Artist|Song}}
# {{song link|Artist|Song}}

==== {{album link|Year|Album|(Various Artists)}} ====
 # {{song link|Artist|Song}}
=== Non-Album Tracks ===
# {{song link|Artist|Song}}
# {{song link|Artist|Song}}
# {{song link|Artist|Song}}
  • Again, note the inclusion of the {{toc right}} template before the Discography header. This causes the Table of Contents for the page to be pushed to the right side of the screen, which looks much nicer than having it directly about the discography. You could also include it at the top of the page, which would put the Table of Contents closer to the top of the page.
  • Contributions to various artist compilations and soundtracks can be included in the chronological order, or at the end, or they can be collected under Non-Album Tracks, along with B-Sides and rarities, at the end of the full discography.

See Queen as example.
