Purpose

To collect images or userboxes into a single column grouping easily. This template is not just for userboxes; it is also an efficient way of creating a column of images to run along the side of an article. {{Gallery}}, by contrast, creates rows of images and is used when the images should not run alongside the text but rather should serve as a break in the text.

Usage

{{userboxtop
| align = 
| left =
| backgroundcolor = 
| bordercolor = 
| extra-css =
| textcolor = 
| toptext = 
}}

[userboxes]

{{userboxbottom}}

All of the parameters are optional.

Detailed explanations of the parameters are below.

Parameter Valid values

You may also insert breaks by using {{userboxbreak}}. See that template for details.

Hiding userboxes

You can hide userboxes which utilize this (as well as a few other) forms of template-based userbox organization. Simply edit your userspace CSS override (for example, monobook.css for the Monobook skin) and add the following–

table.userboxes { display: none; }
