There are no explicit guidelines on how to incorporate an album article in a discography. Of course, there are several ways how it can be done. In all cases, please keep the following hints in mind:
- sort the albums, e.g. ascending by date (since a discography is in some sense a chronology),
- if you use tables, use wikicode, to make the list easier to maintain.
A simple way to list albums could be:
- first album (year of release)
- second album (year of release)
Note that album titles should be in italics and only albums, not release years, should be linked.
A different way using a table could be:
|Firstname||1999-01-01||first studio album||Label name|
|Secondname||2000-01-01||another note||Label name|
Most album covers are non-free images, and are not permitted in discographies (or any other gallery or list). See Wikipedia:Non-free content criteria #8 and Wikipedia:Non-free content#Acceptable_images for clarification of this policy.For further examples, see Category:Discographies. For current discussion about discography format, see Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Musicians/Article guidelines#Discography section.
