The Wikibender's Guide - Custom Userboxes

Yz2907 June 30, 2012 User blog:Yz2907

This will teach you how to create custom userboxes. If you need any help you can write on my message wall and I will try and help in anyway I can. Also if you have anything to add to the page or if you see an error I would appreciate it if you would let me know.

Custom userboxes come in handy when you want to make a userbox for something without a pre-existing userbox, such as an item or even a crackship. This will be complicated at first, but if you learn the basic commands it is fairly self-explanatory.

White dragon bush This user {{{1}}} Examples {{{2}}}.

For the above I typed...

<div style="float: left; border: solid SteelBlue 1px; margin: 1px;">
{| cellspacing="0" style="width:238px; background:lightcyan"
| style="background:cyan" | [[file:White dragon bush.png|50px]]
| style="font-size:8pt;padding:4pt;line-height:1.25em;" | This user {{{1}}} Examples {{{2}}}.
</div><noinclude><br clear="all" />


For most of you that probably seemed like incomprehensible code. Everything in there can be edited but average users will mainly be using four parts of it. Everything in caps is where most edit.

<div style="float: left; border: SOLID STEELBLUE 1PX; margin: 1px;">
{| cellspacing="0" style="width:238px; background:LIGHTCYAN"
| style="background:CYAN" | [[file:WHITE DRAGON BUSH.PNG|50PX]]
| style="font-size:8pt;padding:4pt;line-height:1.25em;" | This user {{{1}}} Examples {{{2}}}.
</div><noinclude><br clear="all" />

border: SOLID STEELBLUE 1PX - (in order) Border form, color, and size.

background:LIGHTCYAN - Background color for the main userbox background.

background:CYAN - Background color for the small box on the left hand side (the one that contains the picture).

file:WHITE DRAGON BUSH.PNG|50PX - The image and image size for the picture in the small box on the left hand side.


After you create the page the userbox can be used the same way as any preexisting userbox. Type and replace "opinion" and "reason" with your opinion and reasons for that opinion about the character. {{User blog:Yz2907/The Wikibender's Guide - Custom Userboxes|opinion|reason}}

For example:

{{User:Yz2907/User How_to_create_Custom_Userboxes_-_Example}}
{{User:Yz2907/User How_to_create_Custom_Userboxes_-_Example|likes}}
{{User:Yz2907/User How_to_create_Custom_Userboxes_-_Example|likes|because they are helpful}}
