This template is mainly intended to be used for the creation of other infoboxes.
It is recommended that all infoboxes be based on this template.
See {{Infobox Software}} for an example.

It can, however, equally well be used to create one-off infoboxes on pages which are unique enough not to need an infobox template for that type of page.

Usage

CSS styles such as background can optionally be defined using the following variables.

  • style (styles which will apply to the entire infobox)
  • labelstyle (styles which should be applied to every label in the entire infobox)
  • datastyle (styles which should be applied to every data cell in the entire infobox)

These styles can be overridden on a per-cell basis using the per-cell style variables below.
Each style should end with a semicolon ( ; ), as seen below.

The title of the infobox is defined by the title variable.
The subtitle is defined by the subtitle variable.

Each row is defined using a combination of the following variables.

  • #_label
  • #_labelstyle
  • #_data
  • #_datastyle

The # in the above variables must be replaced by the row number, as seen below (eg 1_label and 1_data for the first row, etc).

The data variables can be used alone to create a full-width data row without a label.
A centred bold header, without data, can be created by setting the data variable to ---.
If no label or data style is designated the default styles will be used.

Up to 25 different rows can be defined.

All variables are optional, though it is clearly pointless to create an infobox with no data whatsoever.

Example

This is the title
This is the subtitle
1 A Header
2 A Label 2 Some Data
3 Another Label 3 Some more Data
4 A Header
6 Some data only that expands across both columns
7 A Header
8 A Label 8 Some Data
9 Another Label 9 Some more Data
10 Another Label 10 Some more Data
11 A Header
12 Some data only that expands across both columns
