I am having some difficulties setting up the Infobox template for the articles in EXceed Wiki. The following is the link to the source code of the Infobox template.

http://exceed.wikia.com/wiki/Template:Infobox_character?action=edit

There are few things that I'd like to make improvements on:

1. Hiding the unused parameters: In this page where the Infobox is used, the unused parameter is showing the codes that consists it in the source code of the template. I tried adding few codes to state it as nowiki but to no avail.

2. Multiple lines in a single parameter: In the same link, the "Appearance" parameter has multiple lines with the usage of br. The outcome is not really what I've desired as the parameter name appears in the middle of the lines, with the preceeding and following lines expanding above and below the middle line; what I want to do is to make the parameter name appear next to the first line, wit~h the subsequent lines continuing below it.

3. Adding background color for the template: I wish to make the background color of the Infobox something other than nothing, but am not sure how to make that happen. I would be much appreciated if you could provide me with instructions, as well as which codes for color are supposed to represent which colors.

Done, done and done. I hope that's what you were hoping to do. The custom background color can be defined globally, for all infoboxes using the "infobox" class. You can achieve this by adding .infobox {background: #333333;} (change #333333 to the desired color) to your MediaWiki:Wikia.css. By the way, you might want to consider not using <font></font> and <center></center> tags - they're deprecated. Sovq 06:30, May 11, 2012 (UTC)
