Guide to template fields

  • Image: Only the filename and extension are required here. No "Image:" prefix or pixel size are necessary. i.e. image.jpg
  • Image caption: this appears below the image in small grey italic text it is sometimes useful to insert where the picture was taken

  • Field#: This text is placed in bold in the first column under the Mid heading each field corresponds to an "info#" signified by the number next to it.
  • Info#: This text is placed opposite its corresponding 'field' signified by the number next to it..

You can use upto 6 "field#" and "info#" boxes when creating an new infobox;


  • Title: changes text in the top-heading of the infobox table if needed, the heading is taken from the page name by default.
  • Heading-colour: change only if needed default colour is black. hex-code:000000
  • MidHeading: Changes text of the mid heading.
  • BorderColour: Changes the colour of the border, the default colour is black. hex-code:000000.
  • BackgroundColour: changes the background colour of the entire infobox by default it is grey. hex-code:CCCCCC.

Using this template to build other templates is possible, but due to its limited range it is not recommended.
