This template works like a table. You must wrap a call to this templates with {| and |}. You can wrap several calls in the same set of enclosures.

  • The character box is currently 250px in width. Holding more than 3-4 character boxes in a single pair of {| |} may result in the page needing to side scroll.

To use your uploaded image with this template, your image should be titled User_<username>_<character name>.jpg

Currently this template uses a custom pallet of character colours that can be seen here

If you have any question I'd be more than happy to answer them. All that I ask is that you please ask here as I will rarely check the talk associated to this page.

Samples can be viewed here in my sandbox for now.

To "adjust"[edit]

  • items that have their icons as skins will not show up, (for example: Kaiser Snake Staff Skin). Also it's currently finicky in regards to capitolization of words after the first one (for example: Kaiser Snake Staff skin produces plaintext but Kaiser Snake Staff Skin produces a lined page and icon)
