Forums: Admin Central Index Technical Help Problem with Infobox

I have made an infobox and its all well but for some reason, there was a curly bracket,a vertical bar & then 2 more curly brackets when I was done editing it. This also appears on the one page I currently have so far that is using it.


I then found the problem to it in the editing page of that infobox so I deleted them. But then when I went to the page that uses the infobox,only the name and the image appeared. None of the categories did. I decided to add them back in but delete one curly bracket and even that makes the infobox only show the name and image.


I'm asking if there's a way to delete the 3 curly brackets and the vertical bar without the categories not showing up in the page (And soon pages) with that infobox being used. Gameboyz829 (talk) 03:18, July 21, 2012 (UTC)

Yes, there's a way. To get help, you'd need to provide a link to the template, or post the template code here. --IK Talk 21:48, July 21, 2012 (UTC)
Okay then. Here's the link to the template.

There are three unnecessary brackets at the end of this:
{{{Difficulty|{{{Choreographer|{{{Default Dancer}}} }}} }}} }}}
I'm not sure why are you inserting these parameters into each other. You can just type this instead:
{{{Difficulty|}}} {{{Choreographer|}}} {{{Default Dancer|}}}
The if tag would display the Information rows if any of these parameters are not empty.
Also your <noinclude> tag is not closed, though it's not related to your problem. --IK Talk 23:11, July 21, 2012 (UTC)
I changed the parameters to the style you put it in and decided to take out the and while it does take the 3 curly brackets & the 1 vertical bar out,when I check the page that has the infobox in it,it still just shows the name and the image without the categories.

You removed a pipe (vertical bar) that should follow these parameters, so the if tag wasn't working. I fixed it for you :) --IK Talk 02:13, July 23, 2012 (UTC)
Looks like its appearing now. Thanks! :) Gameboyz829 (talk) 23:11, July 23, 2012 (UTC)
