Saving Userbox as a Template

Now that you've made your Userbox, you've got a decision to make. Do I want to save it as a template for others to use or not?

If you said yes, then follow the instructions below:

  1. Go to http://rpgmaker.wikia.com/wiki/Template:Userbox/NAMEHERE?action=edit.
    Replace "NAMEHERE" with the name you want to give your Userbox.
  2. Paste the code to your Userbox.
  3. Add <noinclude>[[Category:Userboxes]]</noinclude> below your Userbox code.
  4. Click Publish.

You and everyone else will now be able to use your Userbox. To use it, type {{Userbox/NAMEHERE}}. Replace "NAMEHERE" with the name you want to give your Userbox.
