Group Category

How would people feel about adding a group category in to the template so that it automatically categorises group pages that it is included on? It would save a lot of effort when it comes to categorising uncategorised pages and the like. What are the potential problems and benefits of this?--Shortround }.{ My Contributions 15:18, 12 April 2012 (BST)

Adding custom image


If your groupbox is displaying the image to the left, and you want to add one of your own group images instead, just add a new line with group_image=Image:Aussieflag.JPG| somewhere inside the template code on your page. Make sure you change the image name to the one of your own image -- boxy talkteh rulz 10:07 25 January 2009 (BST)


Calling a moderator: Please change the bit that says {{User:Xoid/Groupbox| to {{Groupbox| - I thought Zaruthustra already removed that bit. –Xoid STFU! 02:58, 22 May 2006 (BST)

With the recent release of the radio frequencies, many groups are claiming specific frequencies as their own- Is there any chance of getting another line added to the groupbox such as groupfreq? --Gimmic 18:45, 9 June 2006 (BST)

Seconded. A "group frequency" field would be most appreciated. Furniture 21:00, 13 June 2006 (BST)

Hey a group slogan would be pretty cool to add.I believe it would save space and probably be easier for groups into the future.


Maybe it will catch on ?????


Old Discussion

This is a very nice feature. I'm quite new to wiki. --Fuzzytek 19:11, 10 Sep 2005 (BST)

I changed the way the template handles images. With the old method, if there was no image file to display, it got all messy. Now, it should look better, and the image tag has to be put in manually on the artice end.--Daranz 22:55, 9 Sep 2005 (BST)

If you are going to use this template, do not put your information in the fields on this page. This is what you would post:

{{groupbox|group_name=FILL THIS IN|group_abbrev=FILL THIS IN|group_image=FILL THIS IN|group_membership=FILL THIS IN|group_leaders=FILL THIS IN|group_goals=FILL THIS IN|group_recruit=FILL THIS IN|group_contact=FILL THIS IN}}

I hope that this clears up some confusion. --ShaqFu 03:15, 11 Sep 2005 (BST)

I hope no one minds, but there was a little bit of a readability issue with the tables set up the way they were. Providing a zebra look helps to clear up where one box starts and ends. Having the titles changed from being centered vertically could also be an option. (Although, if someone could make it so the content in the grey stripes weren't bold, that would be even better. Don't exactly know why it did that.) --Monohymn 05:35, 23 Sep 2005 (BST)

Oooh, I like, apart from the bold thing. Unfortunately I think it's some sort of automatic feature of templates that says "there's a background colour, this one must be important", so I don't know whether it can be switched off. --Morlock 06:20, 23 Sep 2005 (BST)
Well, phooey.--Monohymn 14:17, 23 Sep 2005 (BST)
Probably a little late for this, but the reason they were bolded is because they had the heading pipe "!". --Raelin 08:35, 21 Oct 2005 (BST)
I tink the last edit may have screwed things up for anyone using the template on their page. I do not know how to fix it, or who was responseable --User:DarthMortis 23Dec 3:45 pm EST
It is fixed now. Don't worry about it. --Daranz|talk| 20:45, 23 Dec 2005 (GMT)

Anyone mind keeping an eye on this, and reverting it. Some jackass keeps f'ing with it. I tried to revert and failed. Mods, take notice on who edits it. CowboyUp 21:38, 31 Jan 2006 (GMT)

I suggest protecting it if possible. There shouldn't be any real need to edit this template constantly, and people keep messing with it mistakenly. -- Vanankyte 21:40, 31 Jan 2006 (GMT)
I protected this page. I'm really not sure why it wasn't done before. --Zaruthustra-Mod 01:34, 10 Feb 2006 (GMT)
Mortifyingly humble apologies regarding my messing up the group template page. Yes, I am a lowly newb and had no idea the damage I was causing. No intentional vandalism, I assure you...just ignorance and trying to figure things out on my own. --

Earrepressible 01:43m 10 Feb 2006 (GMT)

Don't worry, it happens a lot. I actually did the same thing as I was protecting it. >_< --Zaruthustra-Mod 01:50, 10 Feb 2006 (GMT)
I didn't really get a part of this... Where to I put my group's page? I'm used to suggestions, where everything is in the same page. How do you add a page? -Certified=Insane
