New Infobox Templates, changes in progress

Scroll to the bottom for list of characters/TSF pages that need to have their Infobox templates updated.

New Infobox Templates

Updated the infobox templates for both Characters and TSF. I decided to make new templates instead of overwriting the old ones since that was guaranteed to screw up basically all the pages that use infoboxes right now. This way, regular usage of the wiki is not disrupted.

So now the slow process of updating the Infoboxes begins. If you would like to help, check out the documentation pages for Characters and TSF infoboxes on how to use them. You don't need to read everything, just the usage section. For those that don't want to read those pages, here's a little primer on how to update the current template to the new one.

  • First, find a character or TSF page that still uses the old template.
  • This is what the old template looks like in the source editor. Taken from Ayamine Kei's page:
{{Template:Infobox character
|Name              = Ayamine Kei<br>彩峰 慧 (あやみね けい)
|SecondFile        = Ayamine Alternative UN Uniform.png
|ThirdFile         = Ayamine Alternative Fortified Suit.png
|FirstFile         = Ayamine Casual Full Body.png
|FirstCaption      = Kei, in her casual attire.
|Main              = Casual
|2ndTab            = Uniform
|SecondCaption     = Kei, in her UN dress uniform.
|3rdTab            = Fortified Suit
|ThirdCaption      = Kei, in her Type-99 fortified suit.
|Birthday          = September 27th
|Nationality       = Japanese
|Relations         = Ayamine Shuukaku (Father, UL/ALT)<br> Unnamed Mother (EX)<br>[[Shirogane Takeru]] (Lover, EX/UL)<br> Unnamed Daughter (Unlimited)
|Features          = Black, shoulder length hair.<br>Violet eyes.<br>Tall, athletic build.
|TSF               = [[F-4 Phantom#Type-77/F-4J Gekishin|Type-77 Gekishin]] (UL)<br>
[[Type-97 Fubuki]] (UL/ALT)<br>
[[Type-94 Shiranui]] (ALT)<br>
[[Type-00 Takemikazuchi#Type-00A|Type-00A Takemikazuchi]] (ALT)
|Voice Actor       = [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yuko_Nagashima Nagashima Yuuko]
|4thTab            = -
|Game Appearance   = [[Muv-Luv]]<br> [[Muv-Luv Alternative]]<br> [[Muv-Luv Altered Fable]]<br> [[Muv-Luv Supplement]]<br> [[Akane Maniax]]<br> Daikuuji Kiki Ippatsu!<br> [[Haruko Maniax]]
|Manga Appearance  = [[Muv-Luv Extra Manga|Muv-Luv Extra]]<br> [[Muv-Luv Unlimited Manga|Muv-Luv Unlimited]]<br> [[Muv-Luv Alternative Manga|Muv-Luv Alternative]]
|Anime Appearance  = [[Akane Maniax]]<br> [[Ayu-Mayu Gekijou]]}}
  • This is what the new template looks like with none of the parameters filled out:
{{Infobox Character V2
| Name              =
| tab1 image        =
| tab1 heading      =
| tab1 caption      =
| tab2 image        =
| tab2 heading      =
| tab2 caption      =
| tab3 image        =
| tab3 heading      =
| tab3 caption      =
| tab4 image        =
| tab4 heading      =
| tab4 caption      =
| tab5 image        =
| tab5 heading      =
| tab5 caption      =
| Birthday          =
| Nationality       =
| Relations         =
| Features          =
| TSF               =
| Voice Actor       =
| Game Appearance   =
| Manga Appearance  =
| Anime Appearance  =
}}
  • Basically all you have to do is copy and paste the parameters of the old template into the new one.
  • Some things to note:
    • If you are manually typing the template into the source editor, note that the Template name and all the parameters are case sensitive. If you type "infobox character v2" it won't know what you want to use. Easiest to copy and past the above to avoid typos. As a guide: Tab related parameters all start with a lowercase letter and data entries start with an uppercase letter. If you are copying the code, make sure to copy the correct ones for characters and TSFs respectively. They are available on their respective documentation pages as mentioned at the top of this post. 
    • The old template sometimes has parameters out of order. Wiki doesn't care if they aren't in order, but it's easier for other people to find out what is where. When copying from the old to the new template, make sure you copy the parameters to the correct location. Note that in the old template some parameters have different names, most are obvious but here's a short list anyway:
      • FirstFile etc. in the old template is tab1 image in the new template.
      • Main is tab1 heading in the new template.
      • 2ndTab,3rdTab,4thTab are tab2 heading, tab3 heading and tab4 heading respectively.
      • FirstCaption etc. is tab1 caption
    • Some pages use the basic wiki template (Infobox, with is different from Infobox character), which has yet another set of parameters. Just pay attention and you'll figure out what goes where. I have faith in you.
    • The data points have the same names, so those can be copied and pasted whenever they are all in a single chunk. Be careful when doing this because sometimes there are tab stuff in between in the old template. Usually there's stuff at the end, after the "Anime Appearance" parameter. In this example, 4thTab is between Voice Actor and Game Appearance.
    • In the old template, sometimes there isn't a 4thTab parameter, don't worry about that. If it's there, like in this example, and it has a "-" instead of a header, just leave it blank in the new template. Otherwise proceed as normal and copy the header title over.

New template after copying everything over:

{{Infobox Character V2

|tab1 caption      = Kei, in her casual attire.
|tab2 image        = Ayamine Alternative UN Uniform.png
|tab2 heading      = Uniform
|tab2 caption      = Kei, in her UN dress uniform.
|tab3 image        = Ayamine Alternative Fortified Suit.png
|tab3 heading      = Fortified Suit
|tab3 caption      = Kei, in her Type-99 fortified suit.

Q&A

  • But Streak! You could have left the parameter names the same then you could have just over wrote the old template and saved us the hassle of updating the pages!

That's not a quesiton. But yes, leaving the names the same would have saved some trouble and allowed easier and more copy&pasting of large chunks. However, Tabber sometimes does weird stuff when you are trying to add a new tab in the template, let's say a 5th tab, while the code on the page only has up to 4 tabs. The parameters also aren't in order and I would have personally slogged through all the pages to change them just to make it less confusing for people trying to edit the template from the source editor. Visual editor users aren't affected by the order of the source code. Considering all that, I decided to make the parameter naming more uniform. In my personal opinion, it looks neater this way and pleases my OCD. If you don't feel like helping update the pages, that's fine. Since regular wiki usage is not disrupted, there's honestly no rush to update all the pages to the newer template.

I'll add more questions here if there are any

List of Pages that need to be updated

If you decided to help, thank a lot! Make a comment here after you edited some pages and I'll update the lists when I have time, likely at the end of every day. Expand to view.

Characters

I just copied the following from the List of Characters page. This means some characters may not have infoboxes, some may be gag articles and some may not have pages at all. Could also mean some characters are not listed here because their pages weren't added to the list when I copied it. If I missed any and they have infoboxes to be updated let me know (also let me know if you updated the box or not).

TSF

There doesn't seem to be a list of all TSF so this was a bit more troublesome. If I miss any please let me know. Once again, some TSFs may not have infoboxes, some may link to the same page (i.e. F-4, F-5 ...) etc. If I missed any and they have infoboxes to be updated let me know (also let me know if you updated the box or not).
