About Template:FormatInfo...

e.g. What fields are missing? See for ideas, but note that so many fields may be overkill.

e.g. Should it be called ElectronicFormatInfo to avoid confusion?


  • Add conditional logic so empty fields don't show up.
  • Probably remove direct link to IANA.

Question 1 from CR: Is there a way to add signature information to your InfoBox style?

Question 2 from CR: How do we best reflect similar and different information for different versions?

(Sorry, I don't really know how I'm supposed to do "Talk" in this context! - CR)

To use talk in this context, put a colon (:) before your sentence and then type, ultimately clicking on that second-from-the-right button that looks like a signature. If you're responding to a sentence with a colon in front of it, put two, a la ::. Regarding the infobox, I really feel there's some really hardcore well-made infoboxes out there, and it would behoove you to go and research those instead of re-inventing the wheel. --Jason Scott (talk) 03:36, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
Do we really need a hardcore infobox (they can get quite complicated), when something simple like what Andy is proposing would be a good way to get started? If so could you point at an example of one you particularly like? Edsu (talk) 08:13, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
