Template-badinfo.png Documentation
This template's documentation has been marked as bad. Please improve or add to it.


This template generates an infobox for npcs including Zombies and Animals. The Infobox provides a summary of features associated with a given npc. It is intended to organize the information consistently across all npcs and provide a quick reference-point for pertinent information about the npc.

Formatting and ordering of information is largely done by the template with a few exceptions noted below (sizing images, adding links, etc).

Information is passed to the template in the form of parameters and values that are designated as such: |parameter = value. Parameters containing no value or only whitespace will be ignored and not included in the infobox.

Boolean Values[edit source]

Parameters that expect boolean values such as true or false allow for some variation in terminology as in the following:

1, y, yes, t, true = TRUE
0, n, no, f, false = FALSE

For more information, see the documentation for Template:Validate_bool

Syntax[edit source]

Basic syntax:

{{Infobox item
| name = {{PAGENAME}}
| parameter  = value
| parameter  = value
| parameter  = value
}}

Usage[edit source]

Use the following to easily create new infoboxes. Cut and paste the code then replace the values as appropriate.
