Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template can be used to collect images or userboxes into a single column grouping easily.

Please do not use this in articles: for historic reasons this template uses different rules for floating alongside other templates and this will lead to unpredictable results. If you need to stack objects in an article for some reason, use {{stack}}. This template will add pages in the main namespace to category:articles incorrectly using userbox templates if used there.

Usage[edit source]

{{ userboxtop
| toptext         = 
| align           = 
| left            = 
| backgroundcolor = 
| bordercolor     = 
| extra-css       =
| textcolor       = 
}}

{{userboxname1}}
{{userboxname2}}
{{userboxname3}}
{{userboxname4}}
{{...etc}}}

{{userboxbottom}}

Note that {{userboxbottom}} must be separated from the last userbox by a newline. In the absence of a newline, other text on the page may appear inside the confines of the userbox area.

Parameters[edit source]

Detailed explanations of the parameters are below. All of the parameters are optional.

Parameter Valid values
toptext (or the first positional parameter) Overrides the standard "Userboxes" text and link. Can include wiki-markup.
align left or right (default)
left Any left margin value. Defaults to 1.
backgroundcolor Any web color (name or #XXXXXX hex format). Defaults to #FFFFFF.
bordercolor Any web color (name or #XXXXXX hex format). Defaults to #99B3FF.
extra-css Allows you to provide additional CSS style information.
textcolor Any web color (name or #XXXXXX hex format). Defaults to #000000.

You may also insert breaks by using {{userboxbreak}}. See that template for details.

Hiding userboxes[edit source]

You can hide userboxes which use this (as well as a few other) forms of template-based userbox organization. Simply go to Special:Mypage/skin.css, which redirects to your current skin's CSS file, and add the following–

table.userboxes { display: none; }
