  • type — This defines the color of the title. See below for available types. (Optional.)
  • name — This is only necessary when the title of the Infobox should be different from the title of the article. Examples include shortening game titles to their subtitles and removing parenthetical specifications (e.g. Hyrule Castle (Twilight Princess)). (Optional. Default: article title)
  • boxart — Used only for games and consoles, this overrides the image parameter.
  • member — Any organization(s) of which the subject is a member.
  • related — Related subjects. For characters, specify the type of relation, e.g. "Talon (Father)" or "Talon (Boss)".
  • threat — A number 1-10.
  • attack — Attacks the enemy or boss may perform, including how much damage they do, using {{H}}.
  • weapon — Effective weapons.
  • release — Include as many release arguments as needed, in the form release <platform> = <date (using {{Region}})>. release by itself is for console release dates.

These defined types typically use the same parameters:

Adding Rows

If additional rows are needed, they can be added directly to this template. They generally take the form:

{{#if: {{{parameter|}}}
| {{Infobox/Row|Label|{{{parameter}}}}}
}}
  • parameter — The name of the parameter the row deals with. Be sure it hasn't already been used.
  • Label — The label that appears in the left column

Headers can also be added using {{Infobox/Header| text }}. They should be surrounded by an 'if' function that checks for any parameters in the section to which the header refers. Check the existing code for examples.

Each argument—up to three—passed to Infobox/Row represents one column. To adjust which cells are represented as labels, use the label parameter. label=0 makes the whole row data cells; label=1 is the default value; label=2 makes the first two cells labels; etc.

The widths of the columns can be defined using {{#vardefine:colNwidth|value}}, where value is the width (e.g. "50px") of the Nth column (i.e. define col3width for the third column). This can only be done once per column; once a cell has a defined width, further cells in the same column will share that width, even if the variable is reassigned.

Demo

The following code demonstrates different behaviors of Infobox/Row. In proper usage, each line should be surrounded by a #if function checking for parameters.
