Infoboxes are a form of Template, which insert a box of basic information in the top right of the article, but more than that, they determines the Categories in which the article is placed.

The most frequent Infoboxes used by Wikishire are:

Also we have though:

Fill the infobox with fields ("parameters") for the information to be included, but you do not need to complete all potential parameters, as long as "|county=" is completed. (For most infoboxes, including {{Infobox hill}} and {{Infobox waterfall}} it may take "|county 1=", "|county 2=", up to four counties.)

These infobox templates should have a "/doc" page attached to each to explain their use and the parameters they require (though at the time of writing not every /doc page has been done.

If you feel moved to edit a template, beware that it will change every page on which the template appears. Most are delicately programmed so a careless edit will cause chaos across Wikishire.
