Purpose[edit source]

To collect images or userboxes into a single column grouping easily. This template is not just for userboxes; it is also an efficient way of creating a column of images to run along the side of an article. {{Gallery}}, by contrast, creates rows of images and is used when the images should not run alongside the text but rather should serve as a break in the text.

Usage[edit source]

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

[userboxes]

{{userboxbottom}}

All of the parameters are optional.

Customizing[edit source]

Detailed explanations of the parameters are below.

Parameter Valid values
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.
toptext Overrides the standard Userbox text and link. Can include wiki-markup.

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; }
