Mentoring requests Code Geass Wiki

What is your username? Are you an admin on the wiki you are asking about? User:Lelouch Di Britannia Yes, I am an admin.

Please link to the wiki (or the specific templates or pages you want help with) here: This is the original infobox: http://codegeass.wikia.com/wiki/Template:Infobox_Knightmare This is the version after I went to Special:Insights/nonportableinfoboxes in my wiki, and clicked the "Convert" button: http://codegeass.wikia.com/wiki/Template:Portable_Infobox_Knightmare

What would you like help with (e.g. styling, making, or converting an infobox or making a page portable)? After the infobox was converted, the portable infobox looks very different from the original one. I was wondering if it is possible to make it look similar to the original one. If it is possible, then I'd appreciate step-by-step instructions. Sorry if I'm not being specific enough.

Any other information (e.g. links, screenshots, or snippets):

In order to ensure you can implement and maintain a Mentoring solution, how would you classify your technical skill level (or those of whomever will be maintaining your Templates)? My technical skill level is pretty decent when it come to templates and infoboxes. It's just that I've never worked with portable infoboxes before so that's what I need help with.

Yes, it is possible. The step by step instructions are already available in Help:Infobox and Infobox/Basics. Reading the Help:Infoboxes/Tags will also be helpful. 

1. For your specific infobox the first step is to change the structure of the infobox:

Add page title :

<infobox>
<title><default>{{PAGENAME}}</default></title>
...

Add groups and header tags to specific sections:

	
<group>
	<header>Real World</header>
	<data source="first"><label>first</label></data>
	<data source="last"><label>last</label></data>
</group>

2. Use site-wide CSS to change the appearance of the infobox. See http://portability.wikia.com/wiki/Help:Infoboxes/CSS#Sample_code_snippets .

You can see some changes I made to this and change to suit your wiki: http://infoboxpreview.appspot.com/?snapshotId=-KB2DXB74m-RWSar04db Dessamator (talk) 10:00, February 21, 2016 (UTC)
