Need help with this problem and the tutorial does NOT explain --Cs california 06:22, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

If you're just wanting to insert the text with the code similar above, write it like that on the page to be preloaded. If you are asking how to make a template using parameters, see Help:Template parameters. Kirkburn (talk) @fandom 14:55, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

I am attempting to create a new template titled "Infobox video game", similar to that used on Wikipedia. As stated in the directions, I am supposed to look for a page titled "Template:Example" and click on "Create" to create my template, correct? However, I cannot locate this page and instead created a page called "Template:Infobox video game". I write the following code onto the page:

{{Infobox video game
| name       = 
| image      = 
| imagewidth = 
| caption    = 
| developer  =
| publisher  =  
| platforms  =
| released   =
| genre      =
| modes      =
| ratings    =

When I click publish and try to insert this template onto a page, I get an error saying "Template loop detected: Template:Infobox video game". I must be doing something wrong. What should I do? Pac-Man1096 00:00, April 4, 2012 (UTC)
