This is the asbox or article stub box meta template.

It is used to create (but preferably not without consulting WP:WSS) or standardise existing article stub box templates.

Usage

This is a standard template for creating standard stub templates. It supports most, if not all, stub template styles in place prior to 26 September 2007 (UTC).

Parameters

Default parameter 1

Not used.

Default parameter 2-4

The standard implementation passes four default parameters through to this template to allow for future expansion.

icon or image

If the image is called with an icon template icon is set to the name of the template plus any arguments (seperated with {{!}} qv not | . If the image is called explicitly image is the name of the image :- pix will likely be required as well, the default value for pix is 40.

pix

The size of the image, only required if image is set and is a size other than 40. Defensive programming suggests setting the value of pix even if it is 40.

  • This geography article about a place in Rohan is a stub...
