Bulbapedia:Usertags

From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
(Redirected from Bulbapedia:Usertag)
Jump to: navigation, search

Usertags are small, colored boxes that are designed to appear on the user pages of users of Bulbapedia. They may be added like any other template is to a page, using double curly brackets ({{}}) around the title of the template. For example, {{User No Mudkip}} will create the below:

258Mudkip.png This user does NOT liek Mudkipz.

Of course, this will cause the box to extend the full length of the page. Because this does not look very nice, it is preferred to put the userboxes in a sidebar. Below is the most common coding used to accomplish this:

User tags

These are usertags!

Starters
Grass Fire Water
Bulbasaur Charmander Squirtle
Chikorita Cyndaquil Totodile
Treecko Torchic Mudkip
Turtwig Chimchar Piplup
Snivy Tepig Oshawott

Pokédex BW art.png This user strives to complete the Pokédex.
474.png This user's favorite Pokémon is Porygon-Z.
151.png This user's favorite legendary Pokémon is Mew.
442 s.png ShinyIIStars.png This user has a Shiny Spiritomb. ShinyIIStars.png
Spr BW Pokéfan M.png This user is a fanboy.
Spr BW Artist.png This user is an artist.
<div class="userbox">
{{User Userbox 1}}
{{User Userbox 2}}
{{User Userbox 3}}
{{User Userbox 4}}
{{User Userbox 5}}
{{User Userbox 6}}
{{User Userbox 7}}
</div>

Make sure that when you copy this code, you replace {{User Userbox 1}} with the name of the tag, for example {{User Mudkip}}, {{User Starter|006|Charmander}}, etc. Any number of usertags can be put between the start and the end. Other text can also be put in, as seen to the left side of this very page.

A basic usertag can be found at {{User Template}}. This tag can be customized to have any color and show any text. If you want to make a new one that is separate, you should make it by following the basic pattern of the other usertags, and by naming them using this format:

User:Example/User a short name describing the template

Per the usertag policy, this template can be moved into the template space with Editorial Board approval, if it is used on at least five user pages. With this in mind, please refrain from making too many of these. If there are a bunch of usertags that you want to make, please use the {{User Template}} template if at all possible.
