Babel boxes

Your Babel box is for showing the languages that you know, as well as the operating system, keyboard layout, web browser, desktop environment, and text editor that you are most comfortable with. Details of how to use it for its original purpose -- showing the languages that you know -- are at Babel.

  • Template:Babel - Allows 1 to 100 boxes.
    Format: {{Babel|<box1>|<box2>|<box3>...}}

Passing parameters to included user boxes

The trick is to use the {{!}} template. See below for an example.


Custom headers, footers etc.

To customize the appearance you can add the optional parameters header=HEADER (default: Babel), footer=FOOTER (default: ), bordercolor=BORDERCOLOR (default: #99B3FF), color=COLOR (default: white), textcolor=TEXTCOLOR (default: black), left=Left margin (default: 1), bottom=Bottom margin (default: 0.5), solid=Solid border width (default: 1), width=Box width (default: 248), and/or extra-css=<any other formatting>. Call the '!' userbox to start a new column after that point or the '-' userbox to insert a blank row. You may also use '|align=left' to display the babel box on the left side of the screen rather than the default right. Boxes with parameters can be added at the end with the format, "|special-boxes={{box page name|param1|param2}}{{second page name|param1|param2|param3}}". Any number of additional boxes can be added this way and will display below the others.

Example: {{Babel|align=left|color=yellow|en|fr|de}} produces:
