I want to have a similar Info Box for artists like on this site: http://music.wikia.com/wiki/The_Residents (the right box)

How can I do it? (please step by step, i wont understand it otherwise since I'm totally new with wiki)

You have to do something with the templates but I dont really get it

  1. Read Help:Templates (in German).
  2. Read Help:Creating templates (in German).
  3. Read Help:Template parameters (in German).
  4. Read Help:Parser functions (in German).
  5. Check this out.--AB 21:25, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

I actually tried it this way and a box appears. However the box is on the left and doesn't have a border. -- Uhrenmacher 21:49, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

So via Help:Tables I found metawikipedia:Help:Table and metawikipedia:Template talk:Table demo. After some glancing I'd say, append "border=1 align="right"" to the first line. May be worth a shot.--AB 22:31, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
I just copied the used CSS styles. Should be ok now. --Avatar@Wikia 08:33, 16 June 2009 (UTC)
