Sourcebox default.pngThe following is based on source? and has not been confirmed by canon sources.
Template documentation (for the template shown above, sometimes hidden or invisible)

Meta-template for constructing source templates. It should not be used directly in articles.

Usage

{{sourcebox
|image  =Example.png
|link   =The Vault:About
|source =''[[The Vault]]''
|text   =default
|1      ={{{1}}}
}}

All "end" templates based on {{Sourcebox}} support various values for <unnamed 1> (if the end template properly passes its <unnamed 1> value to {{Sourcebox}} as shown above). This can be used by editors to override the text for specific purposes.

Available options:

  • contradict: Overrides other text options with the appropriate text for a contradiction to canon.
  • end: Alters the template text so it marks the end of information from the source.

Parameters

  • semi: "some details might contradict canon"
