What is your username? h4ck3rm1k3

Are you an admin on the wiki you are asking about? yes

Please link to the wiki (or the specific templates or pages you want help with) here: Template:Infobox

What would you like help with:  converting all the infobox or overwriting them

I am quite upset that all the infoboxes broke. They are imported from wikipedia. Can you please overwrite mine with the new standards?

It is possible to overwrite them. But I have a few additional questions:

  • Do you want the exact look the current infobox has?
  • Do you want to change all infoboxes or just Template:Infobox?

They are all imported from wikipedia, I would like you to import all of them with the best you have that is known to work. We did not edit them at all. We dont care about how they look, as long as not broken. Thanks!

I've converted the most used infobox (w:c:speedydeletion:Template:Infobox person). You can take a look at it in the following pages :

You can learn about how it works in Help:Infobox and Infobox/Basics.

Please try and convert the other ones, and if you have any issues doing so, then feel free to ask again.

Please help, I have narrowed down the problem to some Modules. seems to have a problem. Script error: No such module. We are having problems all over, can you please give me some basic idea what are the differences between wikipedia and your wiki? I need to get these scripts working. Are there any wikias you can point me to as working? H4ck3rm1k3 (talk) 03:58, January 19, 2016 (UTC)

Templates that work in wikipedia will generally also work in Wikia. The problem is that when you import some pages they come with Help:Lua, so you need to Help:Export all the module dependencies if you really want to use them. If you want to change them to the new Help:Infoboxes then you'll need to make some changes to the templates you import from Wikipedia. See Help:Migration tool.
