This is the Asbox ([A]rticle [s]tub [box]) metatemplate. It is the standard template used for creating new or updating existing article stub box templates. It supports virtually all stub template styles.

Basic usage[rediger kildetekst]

| image = 
| subject = 
| qualifier = 
| category = 
| name = 

image[rediger kildetekst]

Filename only and no prefix, e.g. "Image.png" (without quotemarks). Image will be sized at 40x30px.

subject[rediger kildetekst]

Placed before the word "article" in the template (e.g. "biographical", producing "This biographical article is (...)").

qualifier[rediger kildetekst]

Placed after the word "article" (e.g. "about a musician", producing "(...) article about a musician is (...)").

category[rediger kildetekst]

Name only of category to which pages where this template used are added (e.g. "History stubs").

name[rediger kildetekst]

Full name of the stub template itself (used for internal reference).

This simple usage should suffice for most stub templates. Additional parameters are described below for advanced use.

Full syntax[rediger kildetekst]

| image = Ambox style.png
| pix = 
| subject = 
| article = 
| qualifier = 
| category = 
| tempsort = 
| category1 = 
| tempsort1 = 
| note = 
| name = {{subst:FULLPAGENAME}}

Parameters[rediger kildetekst]

icon or image[rediger kildetekst]

If the image is called with an icon template, icon is set to the full syntax of the template; that's the name of the template, plus any arguments (separated with | ), including the {{ and }} around it. Icon can also be used to provide the full image markup (include the opening and closing square brackets), if special image settings such as "border" are to be used. 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 40x30.

imagealt may be used to override the default alt text which is set to "Stub icon".

pix[rediger kildetekst]

The size of the image in pixels (no need to append px). Only required if image is used and this image requires a size different from the default maximum of 40x30 pixels. (Note that in the interests of standardising the formats of stub messages, images of size 40x30 are much preferred.)

subject and qualifier[rediger kildetekst]

This subject article qualifier is a stub ...


  • This geography article about a place in Rohan is a stub ...
  • This elementary physics article is a stub ...
  • This article about Rudolph the Red-nosed reindeer is a stub ...

Other parameters[rediger kildetekst]

Parameter Description
category The stub category the articles should go in.
tempsort If exists the stub template [?] (and any other templates) will be put in its own category sorted as " " (space) followed by tempsort, otherwise it will be sorted with the value of " " (space) followed by the template name.
category1 An optional second stub category the articles should go in.
tempsort1 If exists the stub template [?] (and any other templates) will be put in its own category sorted as " " (space) followed by tempsort1, otherwise it will be sorted with the value of " " (space) followed by the template name.
category# New (Jan 2015): Since the release of Asbox's module, this template now supports an unlimited number of categories. Just replace '#' with a number, e.g. |category2=Normal stubs, |category99=Over-categorized stubs, etc. Traditionally, category2 was the max, so please only use more than 3 if the additional categories are unique, i.e. not sub or parent categories of the others.
tempsort# New (Jan 2015): Similar to the category params, you can have any number of tempsort params.
note If exists the value [?] will be added, as a "small" note, to the stub template.
name The full page name of the template itself.
demo Has no effect in article space. Prevents category output. Set to anything to enable. (Even 'no' or 'false' will enable it!)
New (Jan 2015): If demo is set, it will show pseudo-categories. If |demo=art then the pseudo-cats shown will only be those visible in article space (i.e. no error/hidden cats). Set |demo=doc to preview the documentation page as well (and all cats). See: Template:Asbox/testcases

Examples[rediger kildetekst]

Using image[rediger kildetekst]

Based on {{Østfold-geo-stub}}:

| image = Østfold_våpen.svg
| pix = 30
| subject = [[Østfold]] location
| name = Template:Østfold-geo-stub
| category = Østfold geography stubs
| tempsort = *

Using icon and category1[rediger kildetekst]

Using icon allows more flexibility in some circumstances than image and pix, since it can be used with templates. Based on {{Wales-footy-bio-stub}}:

| icon = {{soccer icon|Wales|50}}
| subject = biographical
| qualifier = related to Welsh association football
| category = Welsh football biography stubs
| tempsort = * 
| name = Template:Wales-footy-bio-stub

WhatLinksHere[rediger kildetekst]

The page here should have a complete list of all templates using this template. This list can be compared with existing list of stub templates to identify new stub templates created out of process. The last entries will also be the most recently created items.

Navbar[rediger kildetekst]

This template contains...

{{navbar |{{{name}}} |mini=yes |style=position:absolute;right:15px;font-size:smaller;display:none;}}

...which allows the specification (with CSS) of the three stub-template links provided (see [1]). A side effect is that a non-existing talk page of the stub template may appear on Special:WantedPages.
