Hi guys,

I wanted to add a content box at my profile, but i don't know how to.

Someone willing to help?

xx


Hi Cabien. I'm not sure what you mean by a content box. Can you tell me a bit more about what you are trying to do? There three main types of box on the wiki at the moment - infoboxes, tables and navboxes.

Template:Season explains how the season infobox works.

To start a table type {|. A basic example table:

Typing:

{|
|Header 1
|Header 2
|-
|Content 1
|Content 2
|}

Gives:

Header 1 Header 2
Content 1 Content 2

Navboxes are a complex template that are almost certainly not what you are looking for.--Opark 77 18:32, April 2, 2012 (UTC)




Sorry for the confusion. Take for example Eddard's page. Below a short intro story about him there is a content box which contains:

Contents [hide]

   1 Biography
       1.1 Background
   2 Season 1
   3 Appearances
   4 Image gallery
   5 Family tree
   6 In the books
   7 See also
   8 References

This i want to recreate at my profile page. I've tried but didn't seem to figure it out. -- Cabien 08:05, April 3, 2012 (UTC)

I see, thanks for clarifying. We call that one the Table of Contents, or TOC for short. It appears automatically when a page has 3 section headers. You can force it to appear (or move it) by adding __TOC__ to a page where you want the Table of contents to appear. I have done so on your user page with this edit. For more information Wikia has a help page about the TOC.--Opark 77 09:59, April 3, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for the change at my profile page and thanks for the explanation ;) --84.85.249.211 16:47, April 3, 2012 (UTC)
