About

Have you seen those cool headers on people's userpage, and wanted to make on? This template is an easy way to make your own cool header without having to have any experience creating one.

Syntax

Here's the syntax:

{{User:Jakel181/Templates/MyHeader|box=YES OR NO|box size=BOX SIZE|box color=BOX COLOR|text color=TEXT COLOR|font=FONT|content=CONTENT OF THE HEADER|message box=YES OR NO|page info=YES OR NO|name color=NAME COLOR|mouse=MOUSE TEXT|user image=|credit=YES OR NO}}

Let's go through it step by step.

  1. box -- Type "yes" or "no" if you want a box around your header.
  2. box size -- The size in px.
  3. box color -- Type in a name of a color you want the box to be. The default is black. A list of all accepted color names can be found here: CSS Color Names.
  4. text color -- Type in a name of a color you want the text to be. The default is black. A list of all accepted color names can be found here: CSS Color Names.
  5. font -- Type in the name of a font you want the text to be. The default is Helvetica. A list of all accepted font names can be found here: CSS Font Names.
  6. content -- Type in what you want you header to say! It can be anything you want. The default is "Welcome to my user page!"
  7. message box -- Type "yes" or "no" if you want the "Leave a message box" to appear.
  8. page info -- Type "yes" or "no" if you want the header the give a little description about the page it is on.
  9. name color -- Type in a name of a color you want the name of your userpage to be. A list of all accepted color names can be found here: CSS Color Names.
  10. mouse -- Type in what you want your mouse to say when it stands still.
    (Like this (Hover over this))
  11. user image-- This your user icon. If this parameter is filled then it will appear on the top right of the page. Upload your avatar using Special:Upload. After you've uploaded it, type in the filename and the suffix, for example image=Exapmle.png
  12. credit -- Just link Bigpuppy's Welcome template creator, you don't have to give me credit! But if you are feeling generous, I really would appreciate it. Just type "yes" or "no".If you say yes, when you hover your mouse over the template it will say "Header Powered by Jakel181." This default will credit me.

That's it! I recommend you try out your code in the Sandbox before useing it to make sure everything worked correctly, and it looks like you want it to. I also recommend that you create User:YOUR USERNAME/Header and make your header in there, and then when you want to add a header to any page on in your userspace just type at the top of the page "{{User:YOUR USERNAME/Header}}"
