List of pages using this template

This is an infobox for pages about film series.

Usage

Navigate to the templates section of the editor and search for 'Template:Infobox brickfilm series'. Alternatively enter 'source mode' of the page editor and paste the following code underneath.

Note that "Language" will automatically convert the information within it to a link to the right category. If this is not preferable, for example when multiple languages are needed, use the "Language manual" parameter instead, in conjunction with Template:Language, like in this example: {{Language|Dutch}}. Using the Template:Release Date template {{Release Date|2009|September|12}} is also recommended where possible.
