Layout guide is to a large extent standardized on One Direction Wiki. Sections and their headings should largely be consistent across broadly similar categories of articles. In addition, all articles should have lead sections that summarize the subject of an article, unless otherwise stated, and the applicable infobox template if one exists.

  • NOTE: This wiki is not a gallery, and should not be treated like one. Articles should not be cluttered with photos (even if they're in a slideshow). Pictures should be used sparingly and only when relevant to the information.

In general, these sections should appear in this order if they are needed in an article:

  • Background is always used for the background history of the article's subject. It must be the first heading.
  • Trivia sections are permitted; they must always use this title to make this clear.

The word "the" should never be used to start a heading e.g. "Discography" instead of "The Discography" unless it is the beginning of a title e.g. "The X Factor".
