Introduction

This template was created to give folks an easy way to make a blank infobox with sections/headers without having to do the HTML themselves. It can be used to help people navigate to related articles (eg: if the article is one in a series of articles on the same topic) or to contain lists that would otherwise make the page unwieldy or, well, you get the idea. It's based off of the info box used to list collaborators on the PREQUEL (quest) page.

Usage

Copy, paste, and fill out the template below:

{{BlankInfobox|
|title=
|contentSize=
|content=
|sectionTitle=
|sectionText=
|sectionTitle2=
|sectionText2=
|sectionTitle3=
|sectionText3=
|sectionTitle4=
|sectionText4=
|sectionTitle5=
|sectionText5=
|sectionTitle6=
|sectionText6=
|sectionTitle7=
|sectionText7=
}}

Key

All fields will only appear if you fill in information.

  • title = The title of the box; please use title case like you would for a section heading.
  • contentSize = The font size for the "content" and "section text" fields. Defaults to 100%, but you might want to make it smaller or bigger!
  • content = This is just whatever you want to put in the infobox; see formatting notes below.
  • sectionTitle = This is the first subheading in case you need sections in your infobox. It will be bold and centered.
  • sectionText = This is where you'd put the text for the first section.
  • sectionTitle2 = This is the second section subheadding, in case you need sections in your infobox.
  • sectionText2 = This is where you'd put the text for the second section.
  • sectionTitle3–7 and sectionText3–7 work the same way.

Tricks for fancier formatting

  • Wiki formatting that requires linebreaks regrettably does not work. Italic (''...''), bold ('''...'''), internal links ([[...]]), external links ([http://...]) should all work as expected.
  • You can use <br> or <p>...</p> for paragraphs.
  • If you want a list, use <li> in front of each entry.
  • If you want a glossary (or formatting that looks like a glossary) , use this: '''Term here'''<dl><dd>Definition here</dd></dl> and list them one after the other — although if you have a lot of glossary terms, you might want to just make a new page for it.

Example

List of Shonen Anime
  • Naruto
  • Boku no Hero Academia
  • One Piece
  • Yu Yu Hakusho
  • Glossary of Exchange Terms

    This is a list of common terms that come up during exchanges.

    General Terms
    Request(s)
    A statement about what a participant is looking to receive; many exchanges have a maximum and minimum number of requests required.
    Offer(s)
    A statement about what a participant is willing to produce; many exchanges have a maximum and minimum number of requests required.
    Matching
    The process of matching offers and requests.
    People
    Mod
    The fan who's in charge of the exchange.
    Recipient
    Someone who is receiving a gift from a writer or artist.
    Pinch-hitter
    Someone who will fill in to make a gift after a writer or artist defaults.

    Here is an example of a blank infobox used to contain a list and a blank infobox used to contain a glossary

    {{BlankInfobox|
    |title=List of Shonen Anime
    |contentSize=
    |content=<li>[[Naruto]] <li>[[My Hero Academia]] <li>[[One Piece]] <li>[[Yu Yu Hakusho]]
    }}
    
    {{BlankInfobox|
    |title=Glossary of Exchange Terms
    |contentSize=90%
    |content=This is a list of common terms that come up during [[exchanges]].
    |sectionTitle=General Terms
    |sectionText='''Request(s)'''<dl><dd>A statement about what a participant is looking to receive; many exchanges have a maximum and minimum number of requests required.</dd></dl>'''Offer(s)'''<dl><dd>A statement about what a participant is willing to produce; many exchanges have a maximum and minimum number of requests required.</dd></dl>'''Matching'''<dl><dd>The process of matching offers and requests.</dd></dl>
