User:Anpang/adding infoboxes

From Miraheze Meta, Miraheze's central coordination wiki
Hello! Hey!

Seen those "infoboxes" on wikipedia that look something like this? (look to the right) And you want to add them to your wiki? This guide will help you.

What to consider first[edit source]

Wikipedia infoboxes are very complicated, possibly one of the most complicated MediaWiki templates, so importing them will be hard. There are alternatives though. You must have atleast some knowledge of parser functions and scribunto to properly import them. If not, then you may want to consider using alternatives.
