Documentation: Junction Box

The Infobox is the big template down the right hand side of every single page on the Wiki, other than those that relate to a road. This template calls the main {{Infobox}}, and passes parameters to it that are relevant to Junction pages. It also places the page within the Junctions category, and if the "region" parameter is set correctly, it will add the page to the correct regional category.

Do not edit this template unnecessarily as it is included in every crossing page. This causes issues regarding the Job Queue, after an update it takes hundreds of page views to clear the job queue. If edited twice, that number doubles (etc..) Smaller updates to other templates then need to wait for the job queue to clear before they take full effect, which can cause problems for other editors.

Test all edits on Template:Junction Box sandbox first.

To use this template, copy the code below, replacing anything within <tags> as appropriate. Note that these are only the most common tags, others are also available and are detailed at Help:Junction Infoboxes.
