The code

The new style infobox template can be used on any junction, and most variables are optional. See below for reference of what variables do, and extra variables that may be included. You may spot some articles using parameters which aren't listed here, these are from previous incarnations of the infobox which have been included for backwards compatibility and we hope to update all of these asap.
