It's still not working I don't understand.User:JD123456

Oh, I see the problem. It is a new wiki and you don't have any infobox yet. Basically, you first need to decide what you want in your infoboxes. The following guides will help:

Im still having trouble :/ - JD123456

Did you follow any of the guides, and if so where are you having trouble? Make sure to describe what you have trouble with.Dessamator (talk) 11:19, January 25, 2016 (UTC)
I'm trying to make an infobox for an album which can be used for multiple albums in he future, however i get stuck when it says i can add as many <data> rows as i want just replace it with a different name, i get very confused an i don't know how do it.

I see. Maybe you can help refine that help page once you understand it. It works like this: Suppose you want to create an album for https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Off_the_Wall_(album) . In wikipedia they added information like Released, and length. To create a similar infobox you would have something like :

<infobox>
<data source = "released">
   <label>Released</label>
</data>
<data source = "Length">
   <label>Length</label>
</data>
</infobox>

Each <data> is information about a specific "row". Source is the name you use in a template to change the information, for example release. <Label> is the description of the row.

For example, if you used the template above and wrote, you'd get an infobox like the one on the right:

 {{infobox_album 
| released = August 10, 1979
| length = 42:28
}}

See? It won't work

What have i done wrong for this to happen?


The tags (things like <taggy>) always come in pairs or at least must have something to close it, as explained in Infobox/Basics. So, you need to have text like :

<infobox> 
...
</infobox>

Also, there is a missing closing tag in this :

<data source = "artist"> 
   <label>Artist</label>
</data>

Note the "</" on the last <infobox> Dessamator (talk) 21:33, January 29, 2016 (UTC)
