Proper infobox template...

This doesn't seem to be much of a template as such at the moment; just a suggested method of creating a simple infobox ("Copy this code and paste it into a new blank page", etc).

I would like to replace this page with User:Caesar_Schinas/Template:Infobox, which I have been developing in my userspace. This allows the simple creation of specific infobox templates very easily, by centralising the logic common to most infobox, as well as allowing the easy insertion of "customised" individual infobox on any page.

Note that User:Caesar_Schinas/Template:Infobox has a sub-page at User:Caesar_Schinas/Template:Infobox/row which is required for correct operation and contains the logic which is repeated for each table row.

For an example of an infobox based on User:Caesar_Schinas/Template:Infobox, see User:Caesar_Schinas/Template:Infobox_Software. This should look very similar to the current standalone Template:Infobox Software.

Does anyone have any objections to replacing this page with the centralised infobox template code currently found at User:Caesar_Schinas/Template:Infobox? If not I shall do so shortly.

Succesfully replaced. Will add documentation later. Note: subpage Template:Infobox/row is required for correct operation; do not delete!! ----
