Character Infobox Examples

Using this template

See the examples below. Some use custom colours and the first the defaults. The first example uses all available values, whilst the second does not use the optional fields

To use these templates in your own biography, take the code of one of the examples below. All you have to do is change the variables to suit your own character.

For example change:

| Name=Bob Smith
to
| Name=You Name Here

The colours are determined by the following variables. You can see an example below.

| Border=666600
| Fontcolor2=FFFFFF
| Fontcolor=db4a34
| Primary=2c2c2d
| Secondary=872215

  • Fontcolor: The colour of the font on the left
  • Fontcolor2: The color of the font on the right
  • Primary: the background color on the left
  • Secondary: the background color on the right.
  • Border: The heavy borders between sections
This would lead to a style like this:

Name
Age47

Putting all of this into a template significantly saves on the time it would take to style a table over and over for different characters. It also creates a similar theme across the Wiki. Using an infobox really is as simple as:
  1. Copy the code
  2. Enter the mandatory fields
  3. (optional) Enter the optional fields
  4. (optional) Choose custom colours

If you want to create your own Infoboxes:
  1. Head to the Template-sandbox Area
  2. Create a new template and use the "Sandbox" Prefix
  3. Copy an existing infobox
  4. Change the styling and variables
  5. Create a new page in the sandbox (remember the prefix again)
  6. Make an example page that uses this template
  7. Tweak the settings until you are happy and then create the template in the Templates Area without the sandbox prefix
