Top of article - abox info template

{{abox}}
Goes at the TOP of every article to indicate authorship, currency, audience, etc.
Click the link to get the full text, copy / paste to your article, then fill it out.

Article content

  • each page answers a single question -- e.g. how do I find a list of Riverdale Google Calendars
    • it is not a catch-all for everything about a subject -- other question means another page
      • except for our Get help from Google page, which is a catch-all
  • each page starts with an {{abox}} and ends with a {{CategoryTemplate}}
  • inline images (for instructions) are now added in a very particular way, with a variation of this code:
[[File:Interesting cal.png|thumbnail]]Here's a picture of what you should do<br clear="all">
which gives you this, including the open space before the next instruction:
Interesting cal.png
Here's a picture of what you should do
plus you can alter the size of the images by adding "|100px" (or another size) as follows:
[[File:Interesting cal.png|thumbnail|100px]]
to get this:
Interesting cal.png
Here's a tiny image. It's cheaper that way.

See this example/edit for source code examples.
