[edit] Infoboxes

You may be wondering how to make those little colorful "information boxes" depicted on (for example) the troupe, theater, and performer pages.

To do that, you just include an "infobox" template at the top of the page. For a performer, that text might look like this:

{{Infobox Performer
 |Name	=	John Doe	
 |Picture =	John Doe Pic.jpg
 |Theater=	[[The Hideout Theatre]]
 |Years	=	2008-Present
 }}

For more information about infoboxes, check the documentation on infoboxes for troupes, performers, shows, and theaters.
