Hi everyone! This is just a little tutorial showing you how to create a custom metabox just in case you don't like the default Template Fanon Metabox ({{Property}}) which looks like this:

Fanon Article Ownership
This Fanon page was created and is owned by Example (talk), and as such is not part of the Soul series canon.
Unless the edit is constructive and/or minor (such as fixing a template), please do not edit this page unless given permission from the author.

It's pretty simple really, just copy the contents of the box and change each section with your own information. (Except for text/headline which must stay the same). For a Metabox that will be used on all types of Fanon use:

{{Metabox
|image = 
|headline = Fanon article ownership
|headercolor = 8B0000
|backgroundcolor = FFFFFF
|text = <span style="color:black">This Fanon page was created and is owned by '''[[User:Your Username|Your Username]]''' <small>([[User talk:Your Username|talk]])</small>, and as such is not part of the [[Soul series]] canon. <br><small>Unless the edit is constructive and/or minor (such as fixing a template), please do '''not''' edit this page unless given permission from the author.</small></span>
[[Category:Fanon articles]]}}

This will produce:

Fanon article ownership
This Fanon page was created and is owned by Your Username (talk), and as such is not part of the Soul series canon.
Unless the edit is constructive and/or minor (such as fixing a template), please do not edit this page unless given permission from the author.

For a Metabox specific to a Fan Character page use:

{{Metabox
|image = 
|headline = User Created Character or Fan Character Ownership
|headercolor = 8B0000
|backgroundcolor = FFFFFF
|text = <span style="color:black">This Fan Character was created and is owned by '''[[User:Your Username|Your Username]]''' <small>([[User talk:Your Username|talk]])</small>, and as such is not part of the [[Soul series]] canon. <br><small>Unless the edit is constructive and/or minor (such as fixing a template), please do '''not''' edit this page unless given permission from the author.</small></span>
[[Category:User Fan Characters]][[Category:Fanon articles]]}}

This will produce:

User Created Character or Fan Character Ownership
This Fan Character was created and is owned by Your Username (talk), and as such is not part of the Soul series canon.
Unless the edit is constructive and/or minor (such as fixing a template), please do not edit this page unless given permission from the author.

For a Metabox specific to a Fan Game page use:

{{Metabox
|image = 
|headline = User Created Game or Fan Game Ownership
|headercolor = 8B0000
|backgroundcolor = FFFFFF
|text = <span style="color:black">This Fan Game was created and is owned by '''[[User:Your Username|Your Username]]''' <small>([[User talk:Your Username|talk]])</small>, and as such is not part of the [[Soul series]] canon. <br><small>Unless the edit is constructive and/or minor (such as fixing a template), please do '''not''' edit this page unless given permission from the author.</small></span>
[[Category:User Fan Games]][[Category:Fanon articles]]}}

This will produce:

User Created Game or Fan Game Ownership
This Fan Game was created and is owned by Your Username (talk), and as such is not part of the Soul series canon.
Unless the edit is constructive and/or minor (such as fixing a template), please do not edit this page unless given permission from the author.

For a Metabox specific to a Fan Universe use:

{{Metabox
|image = 
|headline = User Created Universe or Fan Universe Ownership
|headercolor = 8B0000
|backgroundcolor = FFFFFF
|text = <span style="color:black">This Fan Universe was created and is owned by '''[[User:Your Username|Your Username]]''' <small>([[User talk:Your Username|talk]])</small>, and as such is not part of the [[Soul series]] canon. <br><small>Unless the edit is constructive and/or minor (such as fixing a template), please do '''not''' edit this page unless given permission from the author.</small></span>
[[Category:Fanon universes]][[Category:Fanon articles]]}}

This will produce:

Fanon Universe or Fan Universe Ownership
This Fan Universe was created and is owned by Your Username (talk), and as such is not part of the Soul series canon.
Unless the edit is constructive and/or minor (such as fixing a template), please do not edit this page unless given permission from the author.

For a metabox specific to a Fan Gallery use:

{{Metabox
|image = 
|headline = User Fan Gallery or Fan Gallery Ownership
|headercolor = 8B0000
|backgroundcolor = FFFFFF
|text = <span style="color:black">This Gallery was created and is owned by '''[[User:Your Username|Your Username]]''' <small>([[User talk:Your Username|talk]])</small>, it contains pictures of User Created Media. <br><small>Unless the edit is constructive and/or minor (such as fixing a template), please do '''not''' edit this page unless given permission from the author.</small></span>
[[Category:Fanon Galleries]]}}

This will produce:

User Fan Gallery or Fan Gallery Ownership
This Gallery was created and is owned by Your Username (talk), it contains pictures of User Created Media.
Unless the edit is constructive and/or minor (such as fixing a template), please do not edit this page unless given permission from the author.

Notes:

  • To add an image simply write the name of the image in the image box. The File: prefix and brackets should not be included. The image will automatically be resized to 60px.
  • To change the text colour change <span style="color:black"> to the colour of your choice. You can also add <span style="color:black">Headline title</span> to the headline box in order to have custom text colour there too. Once again just change "black" to the colour of your choice.
  • On each Metabox where the categories are add [[Category:Fanon created and owned by Your Username]].
  • The colours for the box itself are just colours I chose. You can change these freely by using HEX code. You do not need to put an hashtag first (#). If you don't know any colour codes then choose one here or make your own here.

You do not have the right to make an individual Template for a custom Metabox. You must use the raw coding on your Fanon Article. If you make a custom Template it will be deleted and your Fanon Article will have the default {{Property}} Template added to it. Make sure to follow these instructions very clearly and add the correct Categories and such otherwise the Metabox will be deleted from your page.
