This template displays an infobox for a datacube. If a data page for the datacube is found, it will use the values from the data page unless values were provided to the appropriate parameters.

Finding the data page

The template finds a data page for a datacube in one of three ways:

{{Datacube infobox}} When neither the name or datapage parameter are given values, the infobox looks for a data page in Category:Imported datacube data where Property:Has name is the same as the name of the page the infobox is being used on.

{{Datacube infobox
  |name=datacube name
}}

When the name parameter is given a value but datapage is not, the infobox looks for a data page in Category:Imported datacube data where Property:Has name has that value.

{{Datacube infobox
  |datapage=data page name
}}

When datapage is given a value, the infobox looks for that exact page, but will return it only if the page is in Category:Imported datacube data.

Note that a datacube data page should be set up with {{Datacube data}}, and the name parameter on that template sets the value of Property:Has name. If the name parameter doesn't get a value, Property:Has name is set to the subpage name.

When there is no data page

If a datacube doesn't have a data page for some reason, you can treat this as a normal infobox and supply the values yourself.

{{Datacube infobox
  |name=name of the datacube (optional)
  |zone=zone of the datacube
  |type=datacube type
  |text=text contained in the datacube
  |unlock_count=unlock count of the datacube
  |faction=datacube's faction
  |volume=the volume of the datacube
}}

Note that if a data page for the datacube is imported later, the values of these parameters will be ignored.

Overriding data page values

If necessary, it is possible to override the values pulled from the data page. When data is simply outdated, it's probably better to just change it on the data page itself, as it would probably have been corrected in the next data import anyway. But if for some reason imports seem to be consistently bringing in incorrect data, you can override it by using the force parameters:

{{Datacube infobox
  |force_name=name of the datacube (optional)
  |force_zone=zone of the datacube
  |force_type=datacube type
  |force_text=text contained in the datacube
  |force_unlock_count=unlock count of the datacube
  |force_faction=datacube's faction
  |force_volume=the volume of the datacube
}}

This is the documentation page, it should be transcluded into the main template page. See Template:Doc for more information.
