Purpose

The purpose of the userbox is for users on Openwetware to display talents and skills that others may have certain needs for. When creating a userbox, one may be inclined to create a template of the box so that others may also be able to add that userbox to their page. One may also wish to add a category to the userbox template so that if one were to search and come across a specific area of interest then that user can click the category and see all others who are also interested (or have some expertise) in that field.

An Example

A user creates a userbox that says they are an expert in Optical Trapping (very general). They create a category link to Optical Trapping, or Optical Tweezers, etc. One searching for optical tweezing may come across this category and find the user who is an expert in this field and wishes to ask them a question pertaining to their research. This person may also decide to look at others who are also interested in this section through the use of the connections provided by the category.

Usage

When you call this template you can adjust several things about the userbox. Below is a table of what can be adjusted:

Template Parameters Meaning Value type
border-c The border color of the userbox. CSS color value #hex or color name)
border-s The border size of the userbox. Width in pixels
