License Box

W A R N I N G
PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH THIS PAGE WITHOUT STAFF PERMISSION.

This is a template page used internally by the Backrooms Wiki.


This component is from the SCP Wiki, and was uploaded there by CityToastCityToast. It is licensed under CC-BY-SA 3.0. It has been modified for this wiki by scutoid studios.

The license box is an easy way for people to know how to credit you as well as an easy way to properly source images. License boxes are a requirement for all pages on the wiki.

Component Base:

[[include :backrooms-wiki:component:license-box]]
=====
> **Name:**
> **Author:**
> **License:**
> **Source Link:**
> **Derivative of:** (If applicable)
> **Additional Notes:** (Optional)
=====
[[include :backrooms-wiki:component:license-box-end]]

How to Use the License Box

Step 1:

At the bottom of the page, below the wikiwalk footer, put this piece of code:

[[include :backrooms-wiki:component:license-box]]
=====
=====
[[include :backrooms-wiki:component:license-box-end]]

If you have footnotes, add [[footnoteblock]] above the licensebox code like so:

[[footnoteblock]]
[[include :backrooms-wiki:component:license-box]]
=====
=====
[[include :backrooms-wiki:component:license-box-end]]

Step 1.5 (optional):

If you have images or other forms of media, put this block of code between the equal signs:

> **Name:**
> **Author:**
> **License:**
> **Source Link:**
> **Derivative of:** (If applicable)
> **Additional Notes:** (Optional)

If you have more than one piece of media, you'll do this multiple times.

These are required in the license box.

  • "Name" is the title of the media.
  • "Author" is whoever created it. If you made it, put your wikidot username.
  • "License" is the license it's under. Put it exactly as it says. If it says CC BY SA 2.0, then put CC BY SA 2.0.
  • "Source Link" is where you found it. If you created it, put the URL of the page it's on.

These are optional in the license box.

  • "Derivative of" If you Photoshopped a variety of images to create a new image or did something similar, you would list them all here.
  • Additional Notes" If you cropped an image or edited it somehow, you would list those changes here.

You can also use this handy box-ify-er to make the process simpler:


Notes:

  • Once put all together, it should look like the component base.
  • You cannot use some modules, including CSS, HTML, and listpages, inside the license section. You also cannot use collapsibles or tables.
  • If your footnotes are appearing after the license section, remember to add [[footnoteblock]] above the license template.
  • Do not copy or move the ===== elements. Only have one pair, and place that pair below and above the includes.

Step 2

Add the _licensebox tag to the page.

Step 3 (optional):

You can change the name of the author in the pre-generated attribution by specifying the author variable |author=. This is particularly useful for co-authored works, works in which you wish to be credited under another alias, or works which are attributed via metadata. Add the variable like this:

[[include :backrooms-wiki:component:license-box
|author=YourAliasHere]]


This is the actual component, ignore it:

[[div class="licensebox"]]
[[collapsible show="‡ Licensing / Citation" hide="‡ Hide Licensing / Citation"]]
