This page is a tutorial for the Infobox and AgeInfobox templates. While the two are visually similar, they both have their quirks when using the same image for thumbnails due to the way the OpenUru wiki handles images. Make sure you have a thumbnail sized image if you'd like to utilize the "tn_image" feature. I'll give you a brief description of how to utilize these boxes for articles.

Using Template:Infobox

The Infobox template can be used for description markups or summaries. The generalized parameters are described in detail here. The basic parameters can be filled to describe or summarize any article, object, or location. I'll give you a simple example using the New Greeters:

{{Infobox|title=New Greeters|subtitle=The Guild of New Greeters, for a Better D'ni|image=http://assets.openuru.org/wiki/newgreeters/dniGuilds-150x150.png|
tn_image=http://assets.openuru.org/wiki/newgreeters/dniGuilds-150x150.png|heading1=Guild Type|value1=Modern, Adapted Traditional|heading2=Website|value2=http://newgreeters.openuru.org/}}

This code produces the following:

Guild Type Modern, Adapted Traditional

Using Template:AgeInfobox

The AgeInfobox template can be used for descriptions of ages. The generalized parameters are described in detail here. I'll give you a simple example using Ae'gura:
