Userboxes (sometimes abbreviated as UBX) are small colored boxes designed to appear on Halopedians' user pages. They generally include one or two small graphics and a few short lines of text. Often they also include wiki markup that places the user in a category. Userboxes are generally created as templates and placed onto userpages, although their markup may be substituted directly onto userpages instead. Userboxes should not be used in articles. If you need any help, ask an Administrator for further assistance.

Method 1[edit]

The easiest way to add a Userbox to your page is to go to Halopedia:Project Userbox, find a Userbox you like and then edit your page, copy the code onto your User Page, and save. So, for example, on looking on Halopedia:Project Userbox, you see the Human Userbox shown below:

Johnson.jpg This user {{{1}}} Humans.

To have this Userbox on your page, all you have to do is copy the code shown below the box on the Userbox Project page. In this case it's:

{{Human userbox}}

Edit your page by clicking the "Edit" tab at the top, add this code to your page, and save. You are now the proud owner of a Userbox.

Method 2[edit]

If you don't like any of the Userboxes shown on Halopedia:Project Userbox then you can create a custom User Box by copying the below code onto your page:

	 
{{Userbox
|id = Image
|id-c = Image Box background color
|id-fc = If you don't want an Image you can have text. So this is font color
|id-s = If you don't want an Image you can have text. So this is text size
|info = Add your text here
|info-c = info background color
|info-fc = info font color
|info-s = info text size
|border-c = box color
|border-s = border width in pixels
}}

Replace the above text with your custom box characteristics. It is suggested that you limit the size of any images in the id box to 40 pixels. For a list of colors and the Hex codes for them, see this Wikipedia page.

Below are a few examples of custom boxes:

{{Userbox
|id = [[File:Brute chiefton jpg.jpg|45px]]
|id-c = Black
|info = This user loathes '''[[Brutes]]'''.
|info-c = Silver
|info-fc = black
|border-c = black
}}

|border-c = Black
}}

}}

|border-c = black
}}
