This is a step-by-step procedure on how to make userboxes. Userboxes, in case you were unsure, are these neat little boxes that express your feelings on a certain topic.

Step 1

Create a new page and call it Template:USERBOXNAME, replacing USERBOXNAME with whatever you want to call it. e.g. Template:Jackstalshipper.

When you get it, you'll see this:

Write the first paragraph of your page here.

==Section heading==

Write the first section of your page here.

==Section heading==

Write the second section of your page here.

Delete that and copy and paste this:

{| cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" style="width:260px; background: COLORNAME; border:2px solid black;" |- | style="width:45px; height:45px; background: COLORNAME; text-align:center; font-size:14pt; font-color: midnightblack;" |[[File:FILENAME|100px]] | style="font-size:11pt; padding:4pt; line-height:1.25em;" | WRITETEXTHERE |}

Step 2

Replace COLOURNAME with the colour you want to user. If you wish, you can find the hex codes on Wikipedia, but using the colour word will work perfectly as well e.g. aqua or #00FFFF.

Replace FILENAME with the file name of the picture you want to user e.g. I_love_my_best_friend.jpg.

Replace WRITETEXTHERE with what you want to say e.g. This user ships Jackstal!

Step 3

Click the button that says Publish and you should (hopefully) have your userbox! To use it, put the template code in these brackets: {{}} e.g. <nowiki>{{Jackstalshipper}}.
