Template-info.png Documentation

This template displays an infobox for an path mission. If a data page for the path mission 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 an item in one of three ways:

{{Path mission infobox}}

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

{{Path mission infobox
  |name=path mission name
}}

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

{{Path mission 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 path mission data.

Note that an item data page should be set up with {{PathMission 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 an item doesn't have a data page for some reason, you can treat this as a normal infobox and supply the values yourself.

{{Path mission infobox
  |name=name of the path mission (optional, will use the page name when no value is provided)
  |summary=the mission summary
  |type=the path this mission is for
  |episode=the episode for the mission
  |zone=the zone the path takes place in
  |mission_type=the mission type
  |faction=the faction the mission is for
}}

Note that if a data page for the quest 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 When data is simply outdated, it's probably better to just change it on the data page itself, as it would probably have been corrected in the next data import anyway.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:

{{Quest infobox
  |force_name=name of the path mission (optional, will use the page name when no value is provided)
  |force_summary=the mission summary
  |force_type=the path this mission is for
  |force_episode=the episode for the mission
  |force_zone=the zone the path takes place in
  |force_mission_type=the mission type
  |force_faction=the faction the mission is for
}}

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