Template documentation (View · Edit · History · Purge)


The Master Sim infobox template, to be used for the creation of all other Sim infobox templates. This is meant to be used by templates; do not use this for individual Sim pages.


Discuss the Sim bio templates and Sim page structure at The Sims Wiki talk:Project Sims/Manual of style.


Use {{Infobox Sim/test}} for testing changes before editing {{Infobox Sim}}.

  1. Make the changes to {{Infobox Sim/test}}, add any new parameters to {{Infobox Sim1/test}}, {{Infobox Sim2/test}} or {{Infobox Sim3/test}}
  2. Preview the changes on an article page by changing the template to {{Infobox SimX/test|...}}.
  3. If the code works, copy the test template(s) to the original(s) (use "Show changes" to make sure they are in sync) and update the documentation. If the code does not work return to step one or undo the changes to the test template(s).


Only use the parameters needed for that specific template and add any default values, ex. if it is for The Sims 2, give game the value of {{{game|The Sims 2}}}
