A "Userbox" is a box placed on a user's main page to express oneself. They can be fun, informative, or whatever the user prefers. This page is an attempt at a comprehensive index. The index is at the bottom - please edit to add ones that you have made (see editing advice below).

Putting user boxes on your user page

Coding for user boxes is easy. Simply code as follows:

{{userboxtop|Your Name, Title}}
{{user ____}}
{{user ____}}

Replace the "____" with the title of the template that you seek to use, from the lists on the sub pages below.

If the code is placed at the top of a userpage in the above format the table will align along the side of the page. However, if the table code is placed on the bottom the table will appear below any other text on that page.

Coding a New Box

It is easy to create your own Userbox. All new userboxes must be templates, created under the title "template:User ____". Experienced coders can change the web colors using any of the standard hexadecimal color values.

Code Appearance
Standard box
{{Userbox |border-c=#000 |border-s=1 |id-c=#fff |id-s=12 |id-fc=#000 |info-c=#039 |info-s=8 |info-fc=#fff |id=ID |info=Content}}

or {{Userbox |side-box colour |main box colour |side-box content |main box content}}

ID Content
Reverse box
{{Userbox-r |border-c=#000 |border-s=1 |id-c=#fff |id-s=12 |id-fc=#000 |info-c=#039 |info-s=8 |info-fc=#fff |id=ID |info=Content}}

or {{Userbox-r |side-box colour |main box colour |side-box content |main box content}}

Content ID
Double box
{{Userbox-2 |border-c=#000 |border-s=1 |id1-c=#fff |id1-s=12 |id1-fc=#000 |id2-c=#000 |id2-s=12 |id2-fc=#fff |info-c=#039 |info-s=8 |info-fc=#fff |id1=ID 1 |id2=ID 2 |info=Content}}

or {{Userbox-2 |side-box 1 colour |main box colour |side-box 1 content |message |side-box 2 content |border colour |side-box 2 colour |main box font-colour |box border thickness}}
Note: If omitted, border colour and side-box 2 colour default to the same colour as side-box 1, and font colour is black. Default border thickness is 1.

ID 1 Content ID 2

Restrictions on Userbox Material

Userboxes may not be profane or set up to annoy other users.

Language Userboxes

Please see Conservapedia:Babel for more information on how to make language userboxes. (Please note that these are not fully implemented yet.)

Adding to index

To add your userbox to any of the index pages listed below, please add it in the following format:

|{{UB|userbox name|parameter 1|parameter 2|help=instructions}}

The pipe character (|) at the start is to start a new cell in the table.

All parameters after the first are optional; simply omit them if not required.

Optional parameters parameter 1 and parameter 2 are used if your userbox takes parameters.

The optional help parameter is used if the user box needs instructions on how to use it, such as the use of the parameters. Note that this parameter needs to start with help=.

Simple example


This will result in:

This user has accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior.
Use: {{User Christian1}}

Complete example
