Hello I'm Awesume I created a wiki called ATPedia a wiki all about tennis pros. I made an infobox template for them but it did not have retired or dead. I want to make the same template for all of the players. How would I make an optional row for retired and died? If you are confused just ask questions. Awesume 17:48, December 21, 2011 (UTC)

If you're using infobox templates based off the built-in Template:Infobox, you would probably want to have wikicode like this in your template:
|Row 5 title  = {{#if:{{{Date Retired|}}}|Retired}}
|Row 5 info   = {{#if:{{{Date Retired|}}}|{{{Date Retired|}}}}}
|Row 6 title  = {{#if:{{{Date of Death|}}}|Dead}}
|Row 6 info   = {{#if:{{{Date of Death|}}}|{{{Date of Death|}}}}}
So the row for Retired should only appear if |Date Retired=some date is passed or the row for Dead should only appear if |Date of Death=some date is passed when using the player infobox template.
