About infobox templates

2 posts in this topic

The different types of infobox templates( {{location}} {{magic}} {{character}} etc. )  should mean different things, but they look exactly the same if you don't open the edit page. These types give the reader a basic idea of what the article is about, and helps the reader to understand faster.

Is there a way to directly show the name of the template?

They affect categorization. So if the {{character}} infobox is used they will be tagged as a Character (and so on). Categories listed at the bottom of the page.

Beyond that, I'm not sure there's any benefit to making this clear at the top of the page, as it should be readily apparent to readers whether the article is about a person, place, thing, etc.
