Some more information regarding infoboxes


Hi there all! Been a while since I last posted a blog post, so I thought it was about time I posted a new one. A double congrats here - Yet again on both - one for Dzylon and one for Leet-Pete, the former for officially becoming a bureaucrat of the Terraria wiki, and the latter for having his admin rights restored! :)

Anyway, onto business. I noticed on a few occasions that a lot of the templates featured here have been popping up inside infoboxes, which is a big no-no in terms of editing etiquette. Here is why:

  • As far as I'm aware, each instance of it causes a little extra stress for the server because it's a template inside a template. (Though I could be wrong.)
  • It disables visual-mode editing, which is an important aspect for many of the editors here on the wiki. (Regardless of how many of us use source mode, myself included.)

Anyway, please remember to keep the infoboxes as clean as possible in terms of templates. (For example, if you were putting the HP value into the Dungeon Slime infobox, the HP row would look like this in source mode before publishing.)

|hp = {{SUBST: HP|150}}

(And after publishing.)

|hp = 150 [[File:Heart.png|14px|link=Health Points|HP]]

Happy editing all. Feel free to ask any questions. :)
