Just copy and change the values


For example here with a german template

  1. Create a new wikipage Template:UserBoxEx:de
  2. Then copy the following piece of code and modify the variables that begin with text_
    <includeonly>&#13;{{UserBoxEx&#13;| text_country = Land&#13;| text_state = Bundesland&#13;| text_region = Region&#13;| text_department = Regierungsbezirk&#13;| text_county = Landkreis&#13;| text_city = Stadt&#13;| text_gps_device = GPS-Gerät&#13;| text_osm_editor = OSM-Editor&#13;| osm_nick={{{osm_nic}}}&#13;| color = {{{color}}}&#13;| name = {{{name}}}&#13;| country = {{{country}}}&#13;| state = {{{state}}}&#13;| region = {{{region}}}&#13;| department = {{{department}}}&#13;| county = {{{county}}}&#13;| city = {{{city}}}&#13;| gps_device = {{{gps_device}}}&#13;| osm_editor = {{{osm_editor}}}&#13;| lat = {{{lat}}}&#13;| lon =  {{{lon}}}&#13;| zoom = {{{zoom}}}&#13;}}&#13;</includeonly>&#13;<noinclude>{{{{BASEPAGENAME}}/Documentation}}</noinclude>
  3. Finally click save, then go to Template:UserBoxEx:de/Documentation and fill it a nice documentation


  • Fix slippy map bug (parameter not parsed correctly)
  • Show the map only if lat, lon and zoom are set
