Important[edit]

When modifying this template, don't forget to update Template:Infobox album/link.

Usage[edit]

This is an auxiliary template used by the {{Infobox album}} template, as well as other templates used in it and {{Infobox song}}'s |misc= parameter: {{Singles}}, {{Extra album cover}}, {{Extra chronology}}, {{Extra track listing}}, {{External music video}} and {{Audio sample}}. It should never be used on its own. The first parameter should be one of the codes from the table below, representing a type of album (parameter "Type"). The template returns the color that will be used.

Unit test[edit]

If at any time the Expected and Obtained columns do not match, this template can be considered broken. This table makes the template automatically check itself. If a Green tickY mark is seen, it means that self test worked fine. If there is a Red XN mark, it means the test failed. Whenever you make a modification to the template, please save the page, hit CTRL+F5, and check if all the self tests have passed. If you add a new type to the template, remember to add the type using this format:

| <nowiki>typename</nowiki>
| typecolor
| {{Template:Infobox album/color|typename}}
| {{#ifeq:{{Template:Infobox album/color|typename}}|typecolor|{{y}}|{{n}}}}

Replace typename with the new type name (in example, Epic soundtrack), and typecolor with the color assigned to the type (in example, brown). See Wikipedia:Colours and Wikipedia:Infobox colours for additional information.

Note: Sometimes the test may pass while previewing the page, but once saved the test would fail, no matter how many times the cache is cleared. In this case, please click this link to purge the cache. If that doesn't solve the problem, please post a note in the Talk page of the template and an editor will review the changes.
