For a list of userboxes, see Help:Userbox List or userbox category.

Userboxes are small templates that show things about yourself, such as your age, gender, character preferences, which games you own and so on.

Displaying a Userbox On Your Page

To display a userbox, simply write its name between two curly brackets "{{ }}".

Example
{{User male}}
Male.png This user is male.


However, having many userboxes tends to make a page look messy if they are not contained. For that reason, we use the following three templates:


Example
{{userbox container l|Stuff}}
{{User male}}
{{User English}}
{{User Adminplan}}
{{userbox container bottom}}
Stuff
Male.png This user is male.
Englandflag.gif This User is English.
Zwlogo2dsmall.png This user wants to be an Admin someday.


Creating a Userbox for your page only

Copy the "Empty Code" from this page and paste it on your user page. Fill it up appropriately, and preview it to make sure it looks the way you want. You can then save the your user page.


Creating a Userbox Template

When creating a new template, be sure to name it following the examples seen in the userbox category. This can be done in any one of a number of ways:

  • Type the desired name in the search box (including the Template: prefix), then click the red link "You can create this page".
  • Type the desired name into the address bar (including the Template: prefix), the click "edit this page".
  • Type the desired name of your userbox within {{two curly brackets}} on your user page. Hit "Show preview", and then click the red link that appears.


Next, copy the "Empty Code for Templates" from this page and paste it on your new template. Fill it up appropriately, and preview it to make sure it looks the way you want. You can then save the template and use it on your user page.
