Userboxes are a series of boxes on a user's page that describe that user. Userboxes are made beforehand as templates, which can then be used in any user's list of userboxes.

Showing Userboxes

To show a list of userboxes on your own page, you need three elements - the top of the table, the userboxes themselves and the bottom of the table. These elements MUST be on separate lines.

{{userboxtop}} starts off the table, and you can change the title by adding a vertical line, eg {{userboxtop|My Games}}. This could be a link, such as {{userboxtop|My [[Grand Theft Wiki:userboxes|Userboxes]]}}

For the actual userboxes, simply include the template link to them, eg {{userbox:GTA}} or {{Userbox:GTAVC}}. Remember that Capital letters matter (except at the very beginning).

To end the table, simply add {{userboxbottom}} on a new line.

The userboxes on the right are as follows:

{{userboxtop|Sample Userboxes}}

{{userbox:GTA}}
{{userbox:GTAIV}}
{{userbox:GTASA}}
{{userbox:GTAVC}}
{{userbox:GTAVCS}}
{{userbox:UK}}
{{userbox:USA}}
{{userbox:AUS}}
{{userbox:Japan}}
{{userbox:Italy}}

{{userboxbottom}}
See Category:Userboxes for a full list of available userboxes.

Creating Userboxes

There are two methods to creating userboxes. You can either make a box yourself using a DIV and a TABLE, or you can use the pre-made userbox syntax. You should create your userbox at Template:Userbox:Name - this means your box can be included by a user simply using {{userbox:Name}}.

For both methods, do not forget to put your userbox in Category:Userboxes. Use the following code:

<noinclude>[[Category:Userboxes]]</noinclude>

Userbox Syntax

For ease of use, userboxes are made using maker-templates that have a number of parameters. Once the maker-template is saved, it is automatically transformed to HTML.

Template Parameters Meaning Value type
border-c The border colour of the userbox. CSS colour value (#hex or colour name)
border-s The border size of the userbox. Width in pixels
id-c The background colour of the id box. CSS colour value
id-s The font size of the id box. Size in PostScript points
id-fc The font colour of the id box text. CSS colour value
id-p The distance between border and content of id box. CSS padding width value. px, pt
id-lh The distance between text lines of id box. CSS relative line height/length value. em
info-c The background colour of info box. CSS colour value
info-s The font size of info box. Size in PostScript points
info-fc The font colour of info box. CSS colour value
info-p The distance between border and content of info box. CSS padding width value. px, pt
info-lh The distance between text lines of info box. CSS relative line height/length value. em
id This is the content of the id box. Text
info This is the content of info box. Text

For example:

{{Userbox |border-c=#000 |border-s=1 |id-c=#fff |id-s=12 |id-fc=#000 |info-c=#039 |info-s=8 |info-fc=#fff |id=ID |info=Content}}
