Parameters

Long parameters will extend the width of the infobox. To keep it the correct size keep text short or use the "< br>" function

name
Optional. Defaults to article name.
image
Optional. Defaults to a .jpg image of the article's name. If specified, use [[Image:Creature name.jpg|300px|]]
caption
Optional. Usually the description above the NPCs head.

Optional. Only use if the NPC is a special NPC used during an Event. Answer Yes if they are. Leave blank if not.
zone
Required, will remain blank on page if a value is not entered. The zone or region where the NPC can be found.

Description

Create an attractive "info card" for NPCs. This is another way to liven up the pages. It also provides a consistent "at a glance" information box with vital information that is consistent across all creatures. Note that the goal is not to cover everything that can fit into the card, as that is in the body of the article. If you have any suggestions for what should/could go in the infobox, please comment on the Talk page.

Automatic categories
zone, town, anatomy, beastspeak, vendor = These parameters automatically add categories if the information is correctly filled out.

Image

  • The typical usage is to use this in a new article, save, and THEN upload the image by clicking the image link (which then is pre-set with the article name).
  • If an image already exists on the wiki which has a name that does not match the infobox naming scheme, or is in a different format (png), specify it using the parameter.

Examples

Here you can see examples of what Velkort's, Mushroom Jack's, and Sanja's templates could look like.
