  • Italic parameters above default to sane values and should generally not be touched.
  • Sane defaults are provided for everything, only content has to be specified to display an infobox.
  • |bcolor= and |bwidth= specify the box border color and width respectively (both with units).

Type {{userbox}} on user page.
The box is formatted with the help of MediaWiki:Wikia.css (see below) - allowing the template to be used both with and without additional formatting information.
The box consists of three parts - left and right inserts as well as the main (text) cell; the cells are rendered if the relevant content parameters are provided.
The available parameters are listed in the box to the right.

CSS code (add to MediaWiki:Wikia.css)
/* === USERBOXES  === */
table.userbox { float:left; margin:0.2em; padding:0; border-width:1px; border-style:solid; }
table.userbox td.left, table.userbox td.right { text-align:center; vertical-align:middle; font-size:1.6em; padding:0; }
table.userbox td.main { padding:0 4px; vertical-align:middle; line-height:125%; font-size:0.9em; }

table.userbox { border-color:#aaa; background:#f8f8f8; }
table.userbox td.left, table.userbox td.right { background:#d8d8d8; }
